    First Bow Hunt

    Went out opening day, first time every bow hunting. Got all my things ready sat there for about 3 hours. Had to leave early without seeing anything. I couldnt stand the mosquitos. Me and my step dad went out and bought some mosquito nets and are ready to go again but unfortuantly I got my wisdom teeth out yesterday and probably cant go back out till next week.

          Thermacells are good but I like bugsuits better. No cartridges to replace on those and if its hot you can put them on over shorts and a t-shirt and your good to go!

                  I have never hunted this time of the year, i had no clue how bad the bugs were going to be, i did try to look for a thermacell but i couldnt find any in fremont. Hopefully the mosquito nets will work for now.

                    walmart has them and probably Nebraska Sports.

                    Bugsuits are ok but why wear a suit when you can just turn on a thermacell and forget about it.

                          Why use a thermacell when all you have to do is put a bug suite on. I already heve enough junk to carry around with me.

                              Walmart has em for 50 bucks, Bass Pro has for around that as well and so does Cabelas. They come in leafy camo so they actually serve two purposes they keep bugs off of you and they provide excellent camo. No canisters to replace and they last for years. If you like spending your money on things like thermacells go ahead and give em a try you might like em better. Another advantage they have is that they are cool, as I said earlier put it on over shorts and a t-shirt and your ready to go.:zBugs:
