Thermcell for us Southern Boys - Panic
« on: October 01, 2018, 07:42:30 AM »
Getting Ready for the first real hunting trip down in GA was getting ready slowly packing the truck. Will try and go to the range again this week, last week there was no range results because it was packed last Friday...it had rained for three straight days here in East Tennessee. So Friday at the range was a very busy day, there were 5 trucks and 4 trucks waiting, I just saw what was happening and turned around and headed home (30 to 35 minute drive)....will try again this week after today's Colonoscopy  ##$%#117 and tomorrow's dentist new crown installation  @--0--0126....will try and go to the range on my Bday (10-4)  @--0--0118  for one last time before heading down..... --09--0

Was plundering through my piles and could not find my Thermacell!! OMG, panic started to set in... --7-8-9....either is in a box somewhere in the external garage along with the refills or it is down in the camper, either way, got to lay my hands on it....so I ordered a new one from Midway this morning, a holder, extra butane and refill packs along with a Thermacell machine itself...should be in this Friday....ordered enough refills for this 6 or 7 day hunt and the 14 day hunt....the order was over $100 bucks!! Ouch, but the Thermacell machine works folks, believe me and ask anybody that hunts in the South this time of year.....so don't leave home without your Thermacell.....

Yeah, I don't normally use my thermacell for deer hunting but might have to this year.  It was our bow opener today, way too hot to hunt (didn't have time anyway).  Skeeters have been coming back in the last couple of weeks with a vengeance, I'm ready for a good frost to kick their butts for the rest of the year.

Good luck with the doc and dentist. Make sure the dentist does not do the butt probe and the Doc do your teeth  --099-780

Amazon has them, fast delivery if you have Amazon prime. I bought a huge box of dirt scent pads with the cartridges. If all else fail, WalMart in many places has it back in 5be camoing section.

I found new holders over the clumsly original green holders. Belt clip on the back in lieu of that old snap on deal. Fits easier too.

Good luck hunting!

With all the rain last weekend and standing water everywhere since, Iíve never seen a mosquito outbreak like Iím seeing now.  Itís horrible. Thermacell sales should be running strong in NE TX! 

If you can find them citronella and lemon grass plants will help repel them.

It is one piece of equipment you need if you're hunting with the bugs no question.

Russ - Do use citronella around camp but not on the clothes or in the blind...according to the long range forecast it going to be hot down there in the upper 80's!!! Holy Cow that going to be hot....but a cool front supposedly to come in around the 13th of Oct...notice I said "supposedly".....then cooler and cooler from then on!!! Yippie....have gotten three propane heater from the blind many years ago and never had to use them...just a good sleeping bag down to say about 40F is all we need for now, maybe 20F for our two week long hunt...have started loading up the truck, check out the Generator that I plan to use...it is Honda #3 (I rotate them every year), it is a 2000 Watt have run like a charm over the 10+ years that I have own it.....

Will head to the range this Thursday for the final trip of the season (before all the crazies get out there!) and do some final checking of the rifles, then the big decision of what to take down with me....at last on 308 will be in the mix, it is a Rem LTR in 308...it is my go to rifle, it can rain on it and clean it up and it shoots 3/4" all day long at 100 yards...have even taken it apart at the range just to check it out.....

Oh yea, the Doc and Dentist Visit went well, the Doc is much grayer and the Dentist and I talked about Dove hunting and Shotguns...they found on polyp and it was benign and they burn it out. I was in and out of there in 45 minutes from walking in to staggering out....The Crown went in OK without a hitch, I asked the dentist about curing of the cement that they use to glue one on with and he said it takes about 24 hours to cure completely.....boy does that medicine clean you out or what...I lost another 5 lbs with it!! so I have lost 31 lbs since the first of the year...way to go Bo...keep it up....

After the range trip, will start to pack up the truck for both trips down....am getting excited about this season....

Thought the heat would subside a bit and would have limited use of the Thermacell, but the heat is going to be us for at least another week. Maybe, just maybe, the heat will go away at the end of my hunting down in GA, this trip anyway!..So they are saying, right now, as we speak, that there is a cool front - notice I did not say cold front, but only a cool front will be here maybe on the 15th or 16th of Oct....Will have my generator standing by with the fan blowing directly on me...I think I am the last guy down there that doesn't have a window unit in his camper....Split Toe, Jap51, Cobbguy, Deerhead, Metalman all of them have one....but not me...humm.....may have to get one next year...but we will see what happens first...maybe a new ATV or UTV first.....

Should be an interesting hunt, hopefully it won't be hunt the first and last hour of the day! Snakes will be still very active on the way to the stand...watch out for them......eeks!!

Am headed to the range tomorrow around noon, thinking it would be better to go on a Thursday than a friday....and to go midday......

Your new knee will be thanking you for that 31 pound reduction - congrats on that!  Stay cool & hydrated down there.

snakes and deer hunting shouldn't be in the same sentence.
