I've got a buddy that says this is the best thing he's ever bought. I'm going to try and get one this year for myself. I know it's for mosquitos, but I thought I'd throw it in there.

seed ticks can be vicious later on during during turkey season. Chiggers show up on the end of the season, but i dont know of anything that will keep them off of you. OFF doesnt seem to fase them things.
if your gonna be stupid you gotta be tough.

I'd rather leave my gun in the truck than my permanone and snake boots.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Seed ticks are terrible for Turk in Dekalb Co. I've got scars all over my legs from the ticks, and chiggers.

Maybe this year will be better. it's been a wet winter. lol

Best stuff there is. I normally buy 2 or 3 packs of it when I find it. I think me and the wifey are going to Bass Pro next week, I'll pick you some up if you want. I personally like the wash-in better than the spray.

I forgot to add, the ticks are worse in the spring, IMO.

Hey Buzz, That would be great if you grab me some of this. I'm still in FL but I'll give you a call when I get back in town next week.

I was in cleveland at the end of bow season and I walked into a nest of chigger larva and babies. I literally had thousands of them all over me. It really freaked me out. My friend even had me convinced that if I rubbed cedar branches on my body that they would come off. I looked like a fool but him and his dad got a good laugh... ;\)
