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.

Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
