Here's my tree stand deer hunting tip:
I use dark, plastic zip ties to secure the camouflage netting to the tree stand through the hunting season, and then remove the netting at the end of the season. The ties keep the netting secure, prevent wind damage, and keep the appearance of the tree stand consistent to avoid spooking the deer. Ties are not used on the front of the tree stand to avoid interfering with hunter ingress and egress into the tree stand.
As an additional tip, plastic zip ties are use to secure astro turf type carpeting to the deck of the tree stand platform to reduce noise. The use of the ties greatly reduces wear and tear on the netting, and reduces the appearance of movement when hunting in the stand.
Hope you like this tip. Best regards, Brian Babb
