I don't think that salt brine is very healthy for anything ,but you do have a great place to plant clover.

As long as it's just salt in that lick. I'd be worried about what other junk may be in there?

It does open up some great food plot territory tough

Take some of that brine and put it in an old glass jar, then take a 1/2 inch bolt 4 inches long wrap a piece of copper wire around it so you can pull it from the jar,then take it out every third day look at it and tell me how many days you think it will take before you can break it in to with your finger.


I'm saying it won't take very long.[>:]

i would say it will hurt any deer that licks it.

gas drillers are being pressured to produce what they put in that water.

we will find out someday that drinking water is going to be polluted from this too.
