Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

the climber sounds like a good idea, but you may have to put up some concealment. You could be getting silouted against the tree line. Can you put some type of blind around your tree stand. Always pray down with some type of scent killer. My favorite is fresh earth scent, it also makes deer a little curious because it smells like a deer is scraping up the ground. Good luck and great hunting.

If you're getting busted then somethings wrong. I personally don't like the scented sprays. I always use unscented. Oviously, no regular soaps, deorderants, shampoos, ect. Clothes not washed in tide or similar products. This buck either sees movement or smells something to be blowing at 60 yds. I would re-clean everything, get up in the air with good back ground cover, and try a quality doe-in estrus scent wick to bring him in. Michigan gun season opens Saturday, that's going to change things for you. Hopefully, you get him.

Sorry that i didnt write sooner but my computer crashed and you know x-mas and all but I moved to the other side of the propertywith a decoy the first day I saw a four point and two spikes but no eight pointer the next morning the wed before opening day of gun season right at seven oclock he came in now the decoy was set up in a two track facing away from the main part of the woods I was hoping that he (the deer) would come in face to face with the decoy but no luck he came in at the rear and started snort weezing trying to get the decoy to turn (no luck) then he got bored and turn and went back into the woods without giving me a opportunity. And I am not allowed to hunt the property until next year. But the good news is no one else got him either well nobody on the near by properties. Well good luck to you guys and keep shooting in the off season ps I did shoot th does with my gun this year so at least the freezer is full
