RE: good spot for mineral lick?

If you put the lick in a hollowed out tree trunk the deer will look after getting rid of the trunk for you. Just drill a few holes if the trunk is a fresh cut.

RE: How far up North for Sawtooths/Gobbler Oaks?

RE: Apple or Pear trees?

It depends on the variety. Deer will eat from one apple tree at my property and just leave apples from other trees around it for the coons. Plant both trees and you can't go wrong.
