I love picking up ideas from other hunters. I give a few of my own for starters: I have a Summit Bushmaster XLS climber. I take a pair of rubber gloves and insert them into one of the open tubes that are part of the stand. Keeps them available and there's not need to pack them with the other stuff where the might get torn. I use tarsal glands from a buck for the most buck natural scent you can get. Works great. Draws and calms both bucks and does. I get them from the local deer processing places as soon as I can during the season. Cut off the extra skin and fur around the gland and keep them in a plastic bag. I attach them to a low hanging branch with a trail marker tack and I also attach a piece of bright orange trail marker tape to them...makes it a lot easier to find them after dark. This is probably my best and most effective tip.
