Hey guys. I remember reading a little about these a few weeks back. This will be my first season of bowhunting and I was thinking of getting one to keep the bugs at bay for early season. What are your thoughts on them? Do they work? Anyone have a negative experience? I guess my biggest question is, because they use butane, is it healthy to be around the thing when its on and does it have a smell that will scare the deer away?

Thanks!

1. They work. Well.

2. I'm not a deer, but I'm guessing they can smell combusted butane and allethrin, the active ingredient in these products.

3. Hunt the wind. At least they won't see you swatting mosquitos.

irvingdog, I agree on all three counts. I haven't used mine for deer hunting but I've used it camping and it keeps the squits at bay. I recently bought the holster and plan on using it for a few early season bowhunts. But if its a pain to use, I'll go back to my old method - full headnet, gloves, everything else covered, and limiting my bowhunts during the hot weather.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
