It was a first for me. I think I prefer freezing my hind end over mosquitoes while on a post.

I'm starting to regret more and more the money I invested into crossbow hunting. :(

I completely agree. Those little buggers make it unbearable.

The answer may be Permethrin. Lots of Permethrin on all of your clothes.

We've had heavy frosts earlier as well. I've had to scrape my windshield more than once before going to work already.

Not real crazy about the idea of "stinking myself up" when trying to hunt for a creature with a very strong sense of smell.

Thermacell's work. I think they use Permethrin too. Permethrin is made from the oils of crushed Chrysanthemums, so you're not necessarily introducing something too foreign to your hunting environment. IIRC, the bottles for hunters say it doesn't have any odors. It's also good for all other insects/bugs.

Try eating a clove of garlic a day. Be forewarned you will start to smell like garlic. Significant others will not want to be around you.....but it does keep the skeeters off ya and masks human scent....

LOL. My hunting season doesn't start til the bugs die. you ever skinned a deer in the 50s and 60s. then you must either like yellow jackets or are def not allergic.

global warming is shortening MY hunting seasons.

the GW comment is a joke, totally kidding.

I hate bugs. saying that, Thermocells are awesome, I really just like cold weather!!!! Too bad I'm in Ga lol.

If you're wiggling around and cursing the smell may be a better choice. :grin:

Trust a "South of New Orleans" bow hunter... Thermacell works. I'd have died of malaria ten or eleven times over if not for that little gadget.
