No Stinki' Bugs/Ticks

Recommended Posts

Knute78

This product is of intrest to any early season deer archery fanatics. Me being one of those, I was wondering if anyone used this product (No stinkin' Bugs by Robinson Outdoors) last fall. I was thinking about it but when I sprayed the No Stinkin' Bugs Unscented at home to see if it was truly odorless I thought it smelled like Off bug spray.

I don't know if it is true or not but to me if I can smell it the deer will certainly be able to smell it. I use other Robinson Outdoor products (clothing and scentfree products) and trust they know what they are doing when it comes to scent control but it was not enought to convince me once I smelled the product. So,I didn't use it.

Has anyone used it? If so, did you see any deer, and if you did, did they detect you and high tail it out of there?

Thanks for any input, Keep the arrows flyin',

I have not used the stuff that you mention, but I did find something I really like. Its called Deerhunters Insect Repellent with Earth Scent, by Repel. It only has 52 % deet in it and works very good... Smells like dirt or mud I guess. Never had any problems with deer picking me out when I wore it either.Seen plenty of bucks with it on.

I used the "no stinkin' bugs" last year. It's fall blend earth scent in a red can. The first night I used it I shot a nice doe, ten yards away, didn't know I was there.

shamalex72, I just moved a couple miles north of Fort Ripley and was wondering if you could offer any info on where to start looking for a spot to bowhunt this fall. I don't really want to hunt public but if I have to I will, don't think I could not be in the tree somewhere! Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!

Almost all the land around Sebie Lake is public,close to 1500 acres, I think. There aren't too many bowhunters, but it gets pounded pretty hard during rifle. That is where I got the doe I was refering to.

There is a some county land around the area too, I havn't hunted it yet but I going to check it out this year.

Chad-

I have used it and think it was fine. The final scent smelled like fall folage. I say final scent because when you first spray it on, it smelt too strong to me. My buddies tried my can once and wouldn't use it again. I'm also curious to hear what others think.

I too had success using the earth scented "red can". I would be in the tree and not have a skitter on me. I'd meet my buddy at the truck and he'd be sayin," those stinkin' bugs were terrible tonight."

I'm still VERY curious to see if the new FDA approved repellant, PICARIDIN (which is truly effective by the way. I used it at my cabin) will be a viable option for deer hunters. It's not oily. No noticable smell, to me anyway. It doesn't trash rubber and plastic.

I got mine in a product called Cutter Advanced. Totally worth a try.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
