    Scent free insect repellant?

    With all the steps we take to stay scent free while hunting, is there such a thing as scent free insect repellant? Archery season is just around the corner and bugs can still be pretty bad this time of year.

    Get a Thermacell! For our turkey season, the mosquitos can be pretty bad. After a few minutes of the Thermacell going, their won't be a squitor around. I've also heard of a lot of guys using these for bear season and early whitetail and no problems with animals smelling it or associating the smell with danger.

    Thermacell doesn't work at high altitude.

    I never tried one, but when I heard they won't light up at high altitude. I gave up on the idea. I'm guessing there's not enough oxygen.
