Salt Blocks for Attracting Moose
Salt Blocks as a Moose Attractant
Do you recommend using salt blocks?
If so, which block do moose prefer (white, orange, blue, red, brown or a combination)?
If using salt blocks, when should they be set out?
Any tips for setting up a salt lick at your site?
Salt blocks come in a variety of colors and each signifies a different ingredient set. Farmers have used salt block since about 1950 in order to make sure their cattle herds were getting the salt they need.
Salt Block Colors and what they hold
White: are pure salt
Yellow: salt blocks are this color because they contain sulfur
Red: are iron and iodine and are without minerals
Blue: cobalt and iodine
Brown: have trace minerals | cobalt, iodine, iron, zinc, copper, molybdenum and magnesium.
Black: contain everything the brown blocks do plus selenium.

For moose my suggestion is to use a salt block variation that contain minerals. The brown one would be preferred (that's what I use).
There is ample information on the net regarding the use of salt blocks in raising deer and I would suggest the information is transferable.
