I have found that my mouse does that too, especially on the right side. I've hit the alligator a few more times! YEAH!! Geez, this stupid game is addictive and a real time waster. Thanks Jtapia, ha ha!
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.
