deer mineral supplement for free range

greeting, new to site but where better else to go for hands on knowledge about deer and their needs.

I have been using a mineral for wild deer that had a combination of Redmond mineral (sea salt) garlic, rosemary .
this worked well for keeping ticks off the deer which less stress has to help.
unfortunately the company went out of business last year.

I need some help in coming up with my own mix, for my use. I have a company that will do the mix if I supply the ingredients.
I use a couple of tons a year, and really enjoy the camera action I get.

I like Redmond sea salt with extra selenium. (use that now)
planned on adding some dical for the minerals.
galic, I have no clue how much to add or where best to get it
rosemary- it was also in there, but do not know the formulas.

any suggestions or help is appreciated.

I usually out this on a stump with notches to hold the mineral , or I have taken hollow logs and split them and used them as wood troughs. I do not like the mud holes created by dumping on the ground.

the garlic or other additions on what yall might suggest and ratios would be very much appreciated.

CHS brand Triple 12 plus, feed free choice alongside a trace mineral block with eddi or iodine in it. deer usually will find it and go to town on it

Been feeding my deer this and the wild ones that wander through, no mixing and the minerals are chelated which means faster absorption into the deer

in 50 pound bags, I think Lankin or Pekin have Payback CHS feed, and the blocks are trace mineral with eddi, which is iodine

What is this payback website you were talking about? I was going to ask you if you know who Tony Jokom is? I don't think that's how you spell his last name but if you know him you'll know What I was trying to type
