My buddy and I filled out their questionnaire. One of the questions was about if someone draws a tag - that is their once in a lifetime chance. I voted that down. There are some units where harvesting a ram is VERY difficult. Those hunters should be given another chance. (Though some hunters come back with their butts severly kicked and never want to try again.)
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.
