Holy Heck Mosquitoes
« on: July 19, 2011, 12:53:04 AM »
Holy Heck guys what are we going to do for the first part of the season.... I went to check trail cameras today and i thought i was going to get carried away or need to call 911 and get air lifted out of woods and a few pints added to top me back up it was insane.!!

I cant image sitting on stand early season or even bird hunting this year.. Its going to be terrible.. Anyone ever use a thermocell in a deer stand.??

Work great for bear hunting never tried one deer hunting...

Anytips or tricks would be greatly appreciated on how to beat the bugs..!

vitamin B bug defense patches odorless lasts 36 hours and completely natural ingredients you can get them at any fishin hole work like a charm but effect everyone differently

Eat bananas. I tried it twice this year and I really do think that it worked. I ate 3 bananas each day and I'm sure there were less mosquitos around me than when I did not eat them.
Pain is just weakness leaving the body.

I intend to live forever;so far,so good.

I've used the thermocell in my ladder stand and it worked fine, didn't spook deer or elk.

I always thought it was the other way around?  That you shouldn't eat bananas because they are high in potassium, and the potassium is supposed to attract mosquitoes?  I could be wrong though.

Too much potassium has another effect too.  It induces bowel movements and with that in mind I'm sure baring your ass in the bush would lead to a few more bites...lol.

LOL...Hey Paul I bet we could sell your idea as a health/beauty treatment....
Treat each day as your last; one day you will be right.

X2 I always heard that eating bananas attracts them.

Isn't eating a bunch of citrus supposed to help keep them away?
Just puttin' it out there...
