Mosquito's

Ok, I spent the day out in the woods today, and no one should be fighting these things on October 20th. That said, what do you do to fight these buggers off and still try to keep sent free?

I looked up Thermacell, does it really work? It does not make any noise?

They work great. I picked one up earlier in the year and was pleasantly surprised. I would get to my spot and the mosquitoes would be terrible, usually you get easily kill 4 with one smack. Needless to say I got fed up with them and went straight to gander to get a thermacell. Now when i get into the woods (when the bugs are bad) I fire up the thermacell and they are just about all gone within 10 minutes. They do make a little noise but I never noticed it while I was hunting.

I second the Thermacell nodd. Awesome... almost silent, but not enough to spook anything IMO.

They heat up a little pad that has a scent free mosquito repealant. I did some research and found that the active ingredient used actually comes from a plant.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
