Thermacell is what you need. It's about thirty bucks at most sporting goods store. I have had to use mine the last two trips after being swarmed and in just a few minutes no mosquitos. It burns butain to heat a wafer. I have not seen any reaction from deer when using it.

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

I am hoping the rain we got here in the Midwest was too late to have any impact on the mosquito population. As of late, no skeeters and no ticks PERIOD. hoping for the opposite come Saturday morning for deer.

Thermacell is pretty good. Mine isn't working as well this year but it still beats not having it.

Thermacell all the way, the only downside is it makes noise turning it on.
