I kept the windows closed while the thermacell ran for about five minutes. Keeps the bugs out good. Don’t sit in it for too long before opening the windows or it will make your brain loopy!

Not sure of the temp here in Pandale but the 25 mph wind has it feeling pretty good even in my tank blind. I should have checked sunrise BEFORE I set my alarm. I知 way to early. They are going to have my hand corn eaten by the time legal shooting time.

In my box listening to the acorns drop on my roof..🤬. Extremely humid and dewy outside but cool enough to keep the swampass down some

No mosquitos so far despite everybody warming us to bring thermacells. Thankful for that!

Little warm in this tree stand. Broke a good sweat walking in. Had a sounder of hogs bedded down about 50 yards from my stand when I was walking in. Them running and grunting past my feeder 45 min before daylight wasn't what I wanted as I tried to slip quietly to the stand.

Good thing I'm wearing my safety harness. Dang skeeters going to carry my fat arse off. Unusually slow at this stand.

Sitting in my Krivoman in Burnet County. A young 8 feeding in front of me. Should have brought some Fog X for these windows earlier. Almost jumped out of the chair when an acorn banged on the top of this drum
