Attractants are only as good as the distance deer can smell them. The farther away an attractant can be detected, the more deer will come. Big & J is the first long-range attractant. All Big & J products are designed to attract deer from a distance. Meltdown Mineral Mix accomplishes this through a chemical reaction that occurs when you add water to the mineral powder. This chemical reaction creates significant heat, which causes vaporization, especially when poured onto the ground. These vapors carry the aroma of the mineral mix through the air to the nose of the deer. This vaporization occurs at the time of the initial mixing, as well as with each rainfall.

  • Made up of a blend of minerals with less than 1% salt content
  • Mineral mix is highly attractive to deer and will attract deer year-round
  • Add water to Meltdown's special mineral mix powder - chemical reaction will begin and the mixture will not only become hot, but it will turn Big & J blue
Big & J's Meltdown Mineral Mix releases mineral vapors into the air, attracting deer to your mineral site. Meltdown chemically reacts with water, creating intense heat, which causes vaporization. You simply add water, mix and pour onto the ground where the mineral will solidify.
Mix Meltdown at your mineral site: Because the Meltdown chemical reaction takes just ten to fifteen minutes, it is best to add the water (use creek, pond or well water, if possible) right at your mineral site. It requires 1/2 gallon of water, which is the equivalent of four water bottles. Once the chemical reaction is complete, Meltdown will solidify, so it is best to mix on-site and pour out before solidification.
Do not reapply more often than every 6-8 weeks: Meltdown will reactivate with every rainfall and will leach into the soil. Deer will not use the site if you over-apply, as they prefer the mineral in the soil. So, do not reapply MELTDOWN more often than every 6 - 8 weeks. NOTE: Deer will continue to visit your mineral site, especially if you replenish. Eventually, they may dig a sizeable hole, so select your site accordingly.

Pour 1/2 gallon (64 fl. oz.) of non-chlorinated water into container. Thoroughly mix mineral powder and water, first by shaking and then kneading. Contents will become hot almost immediately. Continue to knead for at least two more minutes. Pour the mixture onto an area of exposed and loosened ground, three to four feet in diameter. If mixture solidifies in this container, simply cut away the container. Results may vary depending on soil type. Meltdown Mineral Mix works best in clay-based soils, while in sandy or acidic (pine trees) soils, you may get mixed results. Select your mineral site accordingly.

IMPORTANT: Follow all regulations. Please review all local and state regulations regarding supplemental feeding and baiting of wildlife in your area before using Meltdown.
