Any bowhunters getting ready for fall? This morning's cool temp caused my neck to begin swelling. Archery whitetail opens soon. I enjoy the preparation, simple with limited resources. A few tools, a little bit of work (very enjoyable work for me), and a lot of Mother Nature. Target shooting with visualization and self induced stress, even just a few shots per day, cranks my amp. This is my second year experimenting with micro food plots. So far so good growth wise considering they get very limited sunlight. The white clover is candy to them and very nutritious. As much as I anticipate the season opening I also dread it. Spiderwebs and their creators are everywhere, mostly face level. There can be one tick or mosquito on 1,000 acres and they would find me. Ticks haven't been bad this year, skeeters are terrible. 80+ degree temps, 80+% humidity, and skeeters buzzing make sitting still and quiet uncomfortable at best. Waa waa. I look forward to the first hard frost. What are your hunting preparations and plans, regardless of game or tools? Has anyone used a Thermacell (or equivalent) or supposedly scent free (ahem) bug repellent you recommend?
