Buck On uses organic trace minerals and not simple inorganic products. Organic trace minerals have a long history of research in feeding all types of animals. The minerals in Buck On offer the highest absorption level which means your deer get ALL of what you paid for. Inorganic minerals are more often found in feces than being used by the deer. Hopefully, that's what your neighbor is using and when the deer arrive at your location they'll keep coming back for more.
Buck On ingredients have been field tested to resist moisture damage. Typical high salt products will clump and mold. Buck On, when used and stored as directed, will last for months to spread at your location. This makes it easy to purchase once and use for the entire season without product damage.
