We have been setting some stands here in Kansas and have seen lots of Buck Movement. One place had 17 scrapes and 29 rubs in a 1/4 mile. Iknow it's probably smaller bucks but has anyone else been seeing movement like this already. Just Curious!!
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.
