I usually make sure the chairs in my shoothouse are hit with some WD-40 so they don't squeak during a sit. Do you think it would bother deer if you spray it on the chairs at the beginning of the hunt?

Normally I have them sprayed down well in advance so the smell is pretty much gone, but this year I won't be able to spray them until the day I start hunting.

I use Ultra Lube 4X that can be found at most Home Depots. If it has a smell, it is faint enough that I can't smell. It is not petroleum based and the can says odor free.

If I had saved all the money I spent on hunting, I'd spend it on hunting.

if it is a foreign smell they have never associated with danger, they are just as likely to investigate as to spook.
experienced hunters know its not just a bushy white tail, its a big middle finger.

nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught

If the deer smell oil on your climber, then they also smell you, and which smell do you think is more dangerous to a deer?

hey i pee from my stand....just let it rain, and deer still walk by. Just kidding about that, but i have peed beside my stand just to see what the effect would be. To my surprise deer still came by. I think you will be ok spraying before a hunt. Oh and i have pooped by my stand (couldn't hold it any more) and deer walk by the stand after i got back in it they paid no mind to the smell. I have a feeling that if a deer can't associate a smell with danger then they aren't going to care. Like they smell a human and see a human. From then on out they know that smell to be danger a human is near or been there.

I hunted a large field once with a friend and watch him peeing from his stand then he swears that a doe come walking by 20 mins later and ate the grass he just pee on. And with the smell of foreign stuff, I don't think it will bother deer. Think about it, if every time a deer smells something different then you would see deer running around all the time. I think it just makes them a Little more alert to there surroundings

side note - in my experience PB Blaster is much more effective (and longer lasting) than WD-40 ever was. It's got a stench that will knock u down but after it goes away, the squeaks will not come least not for a very long time.
