Silence Your Treestand: The Best Tape for the Job

Camo_tape If you read my last blog, you probably figured out that I hate treestands that make noise. The way to get your stand in a real state of silence is to add a noise-dampening product to the rails and platform. It will prevent the metallic pings from your bow or gun that would send a deer fleeing.

Silent System tape is wonderful stuff. It’s a spongy neoprene with a peel-and-stick back that adheres to the painted metal of your stand. Before you apply the tape, make sure the metal is clean. Wipe the surfaces with rubbing alcohol and let it completely evaporate. Cut strips with a pair of scissors, and stick the tape on the parts of the stand that might come into contact with your bow or gun. I carry several strips in my pack to apply to stands when I’m hunting as a guest. The tape is easily removable at the end of the day.  A 20-foot x 4-inch roll in camo costs $19: http://www.deerhuntinggear.net/camo_tape.htm



How much of this tape would I need to wrap up a tree stand? 1 roll, 2 rolls, 20 rolls?
