Here in South Carolina the Thermacell is the best thing going for early season hunting.  It really keeps the mosquitos 10-15 feet away like they advertise.  I've climbed into stands that were full of mosquitos, and five minutes after firing up my Theracell they were gone.

I would have to say the Thermacell or range finder.  The thermacell gives me the ability to sit longer cause I ain't fightin the bugs and the range finder takes the yardage doubts out of play.

I agree with Jimmy, the Internet and the increase of hunting programming has helped me the most - next to actually being in the woods it is your best link to learning as much as you want to about the deer.

Now if only we can get ESPN to quit showing african hunts and focus on whitetail!

The internet and GPS's are a big help in scouting and learning your land.

Hey sticker pt, I would really like to here feedback on your new Nikon range finder. I am in the market for one that compensates for the angles.

I would have to vote for the internet and Thermacel. When hunting in the south I don't know how we ever did it before the Thermacel. In South Carolina the season begins Aug 15 and let me tell you the bugs are thick. Within 5 minutes of climbing in to the stand the bugs are gone. We as hunters,  I know I do,  will try anything that we think might give us an advantage. Dollar for dollar I think the Thermacel is the best thing to come along in a long time.
Hunting, I am not obsessed I am possessed.

I'd have to say that clothing has taken a great stride in meeting the needs of hunters. xstatic, scent-lok, under-armor and others have make my hunting more pleasurable.
