SORRY DPD...That is Not the case it is illegal to hunt any lands that have had minerals placed on them in NYS..not only right now but will post link later.
DPD as I read the regs I would agree with grow. This is what is in the regs "It is unlawful toMake, set or use a salt lick on land inhabited by deer or bear."  See this link for the long form of this info
I asked a DEC officer and he stated to me a mineral rock can be argued as not a salt lick (as in use by farmers ) you can buy salt licks for deer and cows etc.
I Went with his interpretation.  What do they do in case of a farmer putting a salt lick out for his cows in deer territory? that's another question that I should ask

It could depend on the individual DEC officer and a farmer with a salt lick for his cattle would be an interesting question

OK not to beat the horse here......but lets just get a clarity on the law... A conservation officer said and I took it as ... does not really cut it if one were actually best you'd best have his full name and the date you talked.  So the DEC has a simple way to answer questions and give answers on their web...

Q: What types of attractants are legal for deer hunting?
A: You may use cover scents and lures, such as doe urine, for deer hunting. However, it is illegal to place a salt block or mineral lick on lands inhabited by deer at any time of year. It is also illegal to feed deer. Some attractants that are marketed for deer are liquids or dissolving powders which deer may not directly consume, but the attractants may entice deer to feed on the material which absorbed the attractant. These types of produces would not be legal.

In IL, a mineral block can be used by farmers in areas that are fenced in for cattle containment but you can't get away with putting one in the back corner of some old unused pasture & claiming it's for the cattle - our DNR officers have a lot of latitude on the judgment they can apply when handing out citations.  For the most part they do a good job, but of course there are some who get a little carried away with that authority.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Dave do your home work.  Go old school.  Scout for deer sign.  Look figure our bedding areas, feeding areas trails in between and try to find the pintch point.  Setup your stand in the feed area or pintch pont.  Then some times just a change of scenery is good too.

I bought some Camo screen/wrap deal for my ladder stands. Helps increase you ability to hide from the deer while in stand

I don't know what kind of stands you have or how much help you have, but it seems to me to be easier to draw them to the stand versus relocate.
