I have plenty Rems in the safe. Have you heard about some of the really bad barrels from Rem lately? Not dissing them as each manufacturer goes through that but I've heard about more than 1 or 2 bad barrels from them IE innaccurate.
That doesn't make savage the exact answer BUT I wanted to point out whats being talked about right now.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
