Always tuck your pants into your boots and like it or not, wear dog flea and tick collars on your ankles. They are not dangerous to humans and work like a dream. I simply cannot hunt turkey without them, I can't take the itching, causes me to act crazy. And no, I feel no urge to bark or pee on fire hydrants.

This is the safe stuff. Pyrethrin. Makes 8 gallons for $15. Repel has Permethrin which can be toxic.

The difference being Pyrethrin is a natural extract from the chrysanthemum plant, and will not harm mammals, fish, or, birds. Permethrin belongs to the family of synthetic chemicals called Pyrethroids. It is extremely toxic to fish and cats, and has been linked to poisoning dogs as a flea/tick repellent. It is not as environmentally safe to use as Pyrethrin. Therefore, it is not the same thing.

If you are hit with chiggers use ChiggerRid. I got some and it works, but only after you have been attacked. Permetherine is the best solution to stopping them.
Introduce our youth to the outdoors. They are the next generation of people who hunt, fish and trap.

Most likely not chiggers - likely seed ticks.
Permethrin for either. Other deet stuff like Off will not work.
It is not the killing ...; it is the contest of skill and cunning. The true hunter counts his achievement in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport.
