I should have known, we have lots of Woodpeckers! Must be a proportion thing cause it seems that birds is huge! Must be illusion, a woodpecker just can't be that big! Or if it is, maybe I should be hunting it! HAHA. Thanks very much for taking the time to look for me!
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.
