    Very nice ljones! I'm a little confused as I've never used it... is this a liquid or a powder? How exactly is this process done? I see you have a mixture of alcohol and water, would you mind breaking it down a little better...

    I bought mine at Menards. They sell it as something you use in wells, but a tub will last a lifetime.

    Most well drilling/water treatment businesses carry it. Used in filters to remove iron from well water. That's where I get mine.
  12. Thank you for the tip. It seems like 75% or more of the deer I get in are like that.

    Marked! Thanks for the info...
  16. So... 50% rubbing alcohol, 50% water and how much of the potassium permanganate? I just got mine in (had to buy in on ebay because no stores/well/or pool supply companies carried it). It is in a dry granule state. I dissolve it in the water first right? Then add to the alcohol? Thanks ;D

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Doesn't really matter as it's suspenced in the solution. I use 1 ounce mixed directly into a bottle of isopropyl alcohol.
  18. Thanks George!

    this is how i do it , i mix a very small fresh batch every time i use it for rubbed spots 1 table spoon water , 1 table spoon rubbing alcohol then add just a pinch of potassium permanganate this will go on purple and turn brown as it dries , apply it to the rubbed area with a paint brush
