The trick of the salt lick is to make it appealing

reading about Daniel Boone and Davey Crockettand other pioneers and pathfinders I would occasionally come across a passage mentioning a “salt lick”. Animals of all kinds would frequent such a place to lick the ground to get at the salt and other minerals to be found at such a place. A lick is a great spot to ambush deer, antelope, bison, elk, and a host of other critters. I always dreamed of finding a lick thinking that if I did it would make for easy pickings.
