Default SALT ON BAIT

I'VE USED CORN AND OATS TO HELP BAIT DEER IN THE PAST. GOT ALL EXCIETED TILL I DISCOVERED IT WAS MAINLY EATEN BY CHIPMUNKS AND BLUEJAYS. THOSE SEEDS I GOT FROM WORK, SO THE MONEY IS RIGHT. IT IS FOR SHARED LAND, SO I WANT TO HOLD OFF ON BUYING AND LEAVING A FEEDER IN THE WOODS. I WAS THINKING NEXT YEAR I MIGHT POUR SALT OVER THE BAIT.DO YOU THINK THE SALT WOULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO KEEPING SMALLER ANIMALS AND BIRDS AWAY FROM THE SEED. DURING THE SUMMER I CAN GET UP ONLY ONE PER MONTH SO IT WOULD BE NICE IF IT WOULD LAST A FEW DAYS TILL THE DEER CAME AROUND. A MINERAL BLOCK WOULD ALSO BE INPLACE NEAR BY. A LITTLE WELCHES APPLE JUICECONCENTRATE OVER TOP WOULDN'T HURT EITHER.
