FINALLY got to go bow hunting here in MO this past Saturday morn. But the hunt didn't last long... I was LITERALLY eaten alive by mosquitos. If anyone out there is from MO you know that we've had another WET year and the temps right now are in the mid to upper 80's. Just hard to "get into it" when those conditions.
I'm a guy who typically doesn't have trouble with mosquitos AT ALL. But this year, they are horrible. I'm not the type to give up a hunt for a little bug, but my goodness, there were thousands of them. Hard to sit still when being bitten!

That's one of the reasons I don't hunt in hot weather. Been a dry year here but still hot.

Thermacel. I was very skeptical of its affectiveness untill I bought one for my wife for use around our campfire. Bottom line it works great, and it is fairly cheap.
