Salt licks aren't going to do you a lot of good this time of year. They need to be placed out so that deer can eat them during the antler growing season. Antlers are fully grown now, so no need for the additional mineral.
100 lbs of stock salt
100 lbs of trace minerals
50 lbs of Di Cal
Some people add grape Koolaid to the mix but I find that attracts the hogs.
Mix is all together and put out half in March and the other half in July. Find an old stump and pour it on and around the it. The deer will come back year after year licking and crewing on the stump. Refresh it every year.
