          I would just make sure that you put it up at least a few weeks before the season starts so the deer can become accustomed to it, if the even notice it.

                I once climbed into an old, homemade tree stand, that I had just discovered, and sat there, for about an hour and a half, when an 'ol doe came walking by.

                She paused just before walking into an open lane,logging road, and looked directly at the tree stand,ladder and all. I didn't move ... after a couple of minutes she ventured off.

                There is always the potential for them to be somewhat cautious!

                  If given a chance to get used to the stand they will pay no more attention to it than they will to any tree in the woods. UNLESS they bust you in it a couple of times...then they will adjust thier pattern in order to avoid it.

                      A goofy looking 3-point walked so close to my ladder stand last season that I braced for impact. I thought he was going to pass between the ladder and the tree, and he almost did. I had a doe stop and take time to pee within 5 yards of the same stand. Thanks for the free scent, I thought. I will be hunting that stand again this year.

                        I shouldn't. Just kind of camoflauge it. If you can.

                            No, just set it up several weeks prior to when you plan to hunt out of it.
