Flying squirrels are tops, but never had them nest in a stand. Had six of them crawl across my arm and launch themselves into the unknown while escaping a tree in which I was sitting. Not staying in no tree with a stinking bear (or equivalent apex predator).

Yeah, Me, my son and my friend see over a dozen deer shooting houses.
We've had to deal with hawks and buzzards nesting, snakes, spiders, roaches, wasps, yellow jackets, rats and nice.
Last February we mowed/weedate under them good, cleaned-out, fixed windows, sealed-up cracks with foam and closed up our blinds up with mothballs in them.
When we opened them in September we had some wasps both inside and out but that was it.

There isn't too many other good options in that situation, at least I had the high ground... As asked of my bride, I had my 44 mag with me, but decided to hang it off of my stand platform as it's big and bulky, so it was actually closer to the bears teeth than it was my hand.
