Default Mosquito repellant for hunters?

First of all, I know all about Thermacells and I think theyíre great; once youíre on stand and stationary. I havenít had good luck with them hanging on my belt while walking: scouting, walking to/from the stand, still hunting, etc. I get ate up unless Iím sitting still with my thermacell or soaked and dripping with deet spray... I used to use ďNo Stinkiní BugsĒ by Scent Shield, but I canít find it or a similar product anywhere.

Any ideas? I donít want to smell like OFF while Iím deer hunting....

Back up in Michigan we'd always wear long sleeves, light gloves, and sometimes a neck gaiter on our way to our stands/blinds/etc if we knew mosquitoes and other small biting things would be an issue. It'd get a little hot on the way but we'd strip some layers off as soon as we got where we were going.

Dryer sheet tucked in your belt works pretty well.

Vitamin B1. They’ll land on me but don’t bite. Haven’t had a mosquito bite in 4 years since I’ve been taking it. One day everyday.

Another vote for Sawyer’s. Does really well for ticks too.

I need to try the Sawyer's or the B1. My Thermacell saves me but just walking in is tough with the bugs.

A buddy told me he takes yeast pills. Says he front loads for a couple weeks then just takes a normal does through out the season. I have no real world experience with it.

Go to health food store and get some brewers yeast and mix in gkass,of orange juice. Teaspoon to 1 glass of orange juice. It does work. Glass of it every day. Skeeters won't even land on ya. Only side effect is ur pee will b bright yellow

Permethrinon sprayed on the night before and some of this on exposed skin right before has worked well for me. Doesn't really have much smell at all when spraying and none there after but works for skeeters and ticks.
