Ive hunted out of shiny metal ones and been fine. If it stays there year round they arent going to care.

I prop a few leavy branches to the stand in bow season. By gun season the leaves have turned brown and blend in well.

Best camo is to wear gloves. Seriously.
Oil from your hands will leave scent. Deer will smell the stand after you are gone, at night etc... by leaving as little scent as possible, deer dont get clued in as quickly to the stand location.

Just set-up on the side of a tree away from the trail and leave it. I have a bad habit of wanting to go sit and look around before season. I would probably do better if I could just leave it alone.
