If I have an open weekend where I'm not taking friends and family on a hunt you're more than welcome to go on a hunt with me in KS. I usually go every weekend and always have someone that wants to go along, but I can figure out who I'm taking this season and see if it would be possible, if you're interested in coming this way let me know
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.
