Default Squeeky Stand

The seat on my tree stand is squeeking a bit this year. Do any of you use WD-40 or are you concerned that deer will smell it? Let me know of any alternatives to WD-40 that you might use as well.

I enjoy taking things apart and putting them back together. Having said that, I have been known to coat squeaky bolts and hinges on treestands with vaseline. I have a friend who uses canola oil.....both seem to work well.
