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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
