scent free bug spray?
The mosquitoes are thick in the area that I am hunting due to all the rain this year.
What do you guy's use for a scent free bug spray?

+1 on Thermacell, but as far as spray goes, there is only one I have heard of that claims no ordor, and it's made by ScentShield. It's called "No Stinkin Bugs"

I use my Thermacell in early season too but I don't think it's scent free either. Not as strong as "Off" or other sprays but some smell for sure.

Thermacell. Has anyone tried the newer earth scent stuff? I dont think theres such thing as "scent free" insect repellent, but i know for a fact the deer dont mind my thermacell.
I hunt strictly public land...because I can and choose to do so

As everyone else has mentioned, there is nothing better than the Thermacell!
I love the new turn dial model and newly designed clip case!
An "archer" tries to see how far away he can get from his target and still connect. A "BOWHUNTER" tries to see how CLOSE he can get to his.

^ what they said. You can also treat your clothes with that perimathrin stuff and let it dry. DON'T spray it on your skin. trust me!!!
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

I'd be interested to know why you don't want to get the permethrin on your skin? I know they tell you not to get in on you, but everything I've researched on permethrin says that it breaks down harmlessly within 20 minutes of entering the pores on your skin.

A thermocell on the other hand is the equivalent of spraying a fine mist of RAID brand insect killer in a cloud all around you. You breathe it in as you sit in the cloud. That can't be good.
