I recently made a trip to southern Ohio to hang a tree stand on some land that I now have permission to hunt. When I came out of the woods I was convered by ticks. I hunt NY, and this is not an issue here. How do you guys control these nasty little bugs during hunting season? I can't imagine using bug spray due to scent issues.

They are usually gone by hunting season. The big ones you feel and pull off, the Seed ticks you do the best you can till you get home and sit in a tub for 20 minutes.

Bad in OH

They seem to be getting worse here in OH. I find them on me about every trip out, luckily before they sink their teeth in. Took two off my daughter earlier this year, not a lot of fun for either of us. She had one on her shoulder and the other buried deep in her thick head of hair.

Like it has been said, by hunting season they are usually gone. I think a good frost would be good to put a hurtin on them.

There was a thread last week discussing this.

This stuff works great! You can buy it at Cabelas to treat your cloth with and it's odorless.
