Got a call today from one of the kids dad that I had go out on our property. He got a big doe Sat. morning at 8 am. His first deer and I guess he was all smiles. I going to see if they can send me some pics.
Don't know if the other group made it out or not
That is great to hear, I like nothing better than for anyone to get their first deer. Of course, I am still waiting on getting my first buck ever. But that is another story for another time. Hope the other group made it out and had a time of their lives.
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.
