Making a tree more compatible

637 5
Ok so one of my best spots is located in the middle of a tornado path wreckage. There are very few standing trees around anymore. The tree that my stand is in is essentially a telephone pole, only cover is above me, none around or below me. I feel like I stand out and any movement immediately catches the deers attention. What could I do to make this more suitable for hunting? Again, really no other trees that will host a stand around, I'd prefer not to move as about 70% of the deer I see come within bow range. Thanks

There are a couple of products out there that allow you to brush in your treestand. One is called "The Crows Nest". I made a brush holder from PVC and zip tied it to my stand. Works great.

Take some small cedars you cut and drag the up to your stand and screw one behind tree to give you some back ground and a couple below you. A cordless drill and 3in word screws do wonders
