Hunterdave I do not think I have been busted more using it. But it sure is nice not to draw attention to myself swattin at the skeeters in early bow season in Georgia. I think they have some pads for them now that are scented but I do not know if they still work as a bug detertent then.

Best invention for the early season hunter since the broadhead. No, I have had no problems.

I've been curious as to how well they work and how much it cost to run one for an all day hunt. If I remember correctly you need to buy pads and fuel. Are they worth it?

When they first came out my cousin that works for an outfitter here in Ga got to go on a all expense paid trip to the swamps of south carolina on a early season bow hunt in the middle of august an he said you couldn't even sit in a tree without it no matter how much off bugspray you had on. The next day they used the thermacell an had no problems with the knats, mosiqutos, or biting flies.

You hunt in the Mississippi Delta in bow season you have to have one. They work very well. I hate bug spray because it seems to make me feel hot, but the Thermacell is great. The only problem I have had with it is when a little piece of bark got in it and it started smoking, but that was my fault.

They are not to expensive to use. If you can find the butane cartridges that go in the travel curling Irons for women they are the same ones that go in the Thermacell it will save you a few dollars on that end. They are great and one of the best things to come along in the outdoor market in quite a while.

I think that the advertisement on TV stated that it was definitely a + for the hunters
