If the landowner doesn't object you can stretch down the top wire on a fence and tie it to the next one lower. This can create an easy crossing for deer so you can direct more traffic toward your stand. After the season remember to restore the fence.

Close range hunting and hunter orange are not as conducive to killing deer as law makers believe. When I'm bow hunting and forced to wear hunter orange during gun seasons and if I'm on private land I like to leave an extra orange garment conspicuously in the stand. Deer get accustomed to it and aren't suspicious when they see it later when you're wearing it while you're in the stand.

I hunt at a corner of a trail that i can't see down so I put a bunch of leaves about 20 yards down so I could here the deer coming and get ready. Or just put something crunchy down. Dose anyone now how to streten out fletching. Mine are warping and i just got them fletched with nap quickspin's about 10 dollars extra at least.

Stake down a limb with braided fishing line across a trail and wipe with scent to create a mock scrape near your stand.

Primetime usually a hair dryer works to fix those fletchings.

If you have your own land, you can make a natural funnel by piling up brush so that it forces the deer to take a certain route (in front of your stand) and you can also clear paths to make travel easier.

I hate quivers or laying arrows down on the lawn when practicing or worse getting mud on the tips if I stick them in the grass so I made a plastic stand for the arrows. Get a 2' piece of 3" PVC. Fasten a block of 1/2 inch plywood on the bottom and drive a 16 penny nail through it before you attach it. Put a U hook on the top of the pipe for a handle if you want. Just set it on the ground and the nail will anchor it upright anywhere in the yard.
