i love mine never had a problem but dont forget no matter what ya got to respect the wind and the deers nose.odds are it was hot and you got sweaty

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

I bout the thermacell the first year I saw it because I have a large pond on my property and there are several slews running the back side of it so mosquitoes can be a pain. On those 75 degree bowhunting days you can here the hum of then coming after the sun goes down.

I have used the thermacell in several different conditions and it has always performed well. I rarely get bit when using the product and I have never had a deer catch any scent off of it too. Last year had a few deer within 20 yards (wind blowing straight to them) and they never looked my direction once.

Bowhunting here in Florida, it is a godsend. The Shannons Bug-tamer Is what I wear to the stand and till the Thermo gets to working.[about 10 minutes]. Then I can take it off if I want with no bugs to deal with. The bug-tamer gloves are hard to shoot a bow with and we all know what a headnet does with arrow flight so I used to have to rub bugspray on those areas before thermo's came out. I figure if the thermo scent spooks em then they will have smelled you instead or smelled both so try to stay down/cross wind. I havent had a deer spook to my knowledge with mine on but have wondered what breathing the gas it gives off are doing to my lungs. Sometimes it gets pretty strong.
