I have noticed that this time of year I don't get much big buck activity at feeders and when they do decide to start coming in they will most of the time come in at night.....I set my mineral sites up away from feeders in a remote area and have better luck with bigger deer where they feel comfortable...2 weeks isn't very long to have it out, just be patient and you should see more activity as time goes on...Good luck...

Give it a little more time for them to find it, I would wait a good three weeks or so before even checking your camera again.

Also in my experience it is better to scrape out a spot and disolve the salt or mineral lick intio the dirt. Bust it up and spread it out and when it rains it will dissolve into that spot....... it will be much more effective. and I have made them to last a few years and the deer will just keep digging it out it will get bigger.
