    DI CALCIUM PHOSPHATE
    Can you tell me where I can find di-calcium phosphate. The places that I have called it is 35.00 can not find for close what you paid. I have tried southen states and local feed mills. Also the game wardens that I know told me about this mix several years ago, but have never tried it. Thought I would this year with trying to save money Imperial 30-06 out of budget with two kids now. Thanks for your help!!!

    First Off....Please share the Play-By-Play of that Gobbler in your Profile Piture LoL. I got mine at Tractor Supply and I'm thinking it was $9 for 50lbs...It was less than $40 for 200lbs of Minerals

    Thanks for the info on the calcium cheapest I found was 20.00 but 44.00 for 200 lbs is better than 40.00 for 40 lbs. The trukey was killed last year on opening day. I really got lucky on this one. That morning I had gone to set in a blind on a field. When I got there the birds were gobbling on the rust and maybe saw me but the decoys out, but they never came to me. They went across the field to the hens on the other side and then got into a fight with several jakes. The birds all ran off chasing each other to the field behind me, so I got my suff together and made a big loop to get infront of the birds. It was about 2 hours later and the birds had shut-up so I thought that I would walk back to the truck and look in the front field. When I got there two toms were crossing the field about 100 yards infront of me. So I crawled to about 50 yards to the wood line you see in the photo and made my shot. This bird had 1 3/4' spurs biggest if killed. Later on that year I shot at one twice with bow but missed hope to get one this year with a bow.

    How do you go about making the site? I could see spending the 40 for 200lbs of minerals. Think I know a place that can be really nice, can only get there via water :)

    I Put out another site this Morning and that Makes 4 and still have enough for about 4 More but gonna wait about 6 months to Re-Fresh them. As Hot as The Summer Gets, I placed Mine in shady areas. If you can Place this around water,that would be Great but Noticed a few of your Post talked about Public/Game Land and placing such a site there would be illegal I'm thinking. I been using a 2lb Coffee Can and with all the ingredients..It makes about Half of a 5 Gallon Bucket Full and that's a Great amount for a mineral Site...Good Luck!!!
