Lil' Miss Sally is coming along pretty good. She is working on her "HUP" issues, getting better. She is sitting now untill she hears the shotgun, then she is off to collect the bird. Trying to get her to NOT leave untill I give command. What with me expert shooting, when I miss the frist shot, now I gotta look out for her charging.
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.
