I am STILL tormented by the chigger bites I got a week ago. Curse the buggers. Next time... DEET insect repellent, wrists neck ankles. The books say it takes 10 days. This is day 7.
But what if I go hunting before the first frost? Wouldn't I just be adding yet another smell to the Eu-de-TBolt aroma to frighten off Bambi? I mean, it's bad enough with the cloud of testosterone, Aqua Velva, and methane (it's why the ladies can't keep their hands offa me. Well, not the methane so much.) I walk around in the center of, all day.
Based on my discomfort I don't care if bug spray will guarantee the deer will stay away, I'm using it.
I've heard tricks of carrying half an onion in you pocket. The deer don't associate the onion smell with threat and might mask the other human smells that could spook them off.
