I like to trim just enough out of a cedar tree to place the stand
And I leave as many branches as possible by cutting half way thru and bending them out of the way
As they are still part of the tree the branches stay green and full of needles for cover

Paint'em with flat-black spray paint all over first..Take small
limb from a sweet-gum (or whatever is common in your area)stip
the leaves off'him...Use it like a stencil and spray patches of
browns, greys and greens all over it...I've also sprayed them
with a spray adhesive and sprinkle crushed oak-leaf on'em...
works great, then some of these ole'boys might not see'em...
Camo, by far, makes a stand less noticable...Not trying to hide
them from deer so much as theives and disrespectful hunters..
Thats' the way I do it.................................BH51..

The deer don't pay them any attention.

This is my favorite way to brush in a stand...

Great tip fishb....
i leave mine the original color they come in and keep the camo green spray paint walmart sells for touch up to deter rust. I also use a wire spinning brush in a cordless drill to remove bad rust to allow good adhesion. the deer get used to them but as fish b said they are soooooo smart to pk up on scent!

old green artificial christmas tree branches or garlands of green and fall color leaves (like you find at Big Lots). As long as they don't reflect light most stands are fine as is. I use the leaves and real branches to hide them from trespassers. As far as deer are concerned, it's the squeaking and noise of every movement that causes more problems than odor or seeing the stand (a piece inner tube makes good washers between ever bolt and nut to cut down on the noise).
