I found out that the 195 was taken in Brown co. Il. through a outfitter. The 177 was teken in Tazewell Co. Il. on private land and it's his 3rd booner by bow! he also is the editor of the Non Typical Newsletter there in IL. I don't know anythng about the guy who shot the 195. I wish I had one of them!
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.
