I was lucky enough to get drawn for a Lake Mendocino turkey hunt but have never hunted the area. I have contacted the biologist up there but only got some info. Looking for any info of the area.
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.
