Thermocell

Post by Tiny52 on Fri Aug 17, 2012 5:16 pm


Used this for a few years when hunting hogs in Florida. It works great!.
Since I hunted with the wind to my face the hogs never reacted to it but I have had deer react to it with a swirling wind. the way to end that problem is to add a drop or to of anise to the pad. The anise will mask the chem trail of the pad.

I always have it with me when I hunt near water.

It never leaves my side in turkey season( we got skeeters thats been known to tote off small chidrens:), I also use it during early bow season, never had it spook deer before, but ill try the anise just to be safe. I have nothing but good things to say about thermacell, I keep extra butane and pads with me, its the difference between enjoyin your time in the woods, or gettin toted off but tha little flyin devils. I read your greeting, you lived in florida so you know how bad skeeters are in tha south, especially in a swamp bottom about april tryin to keep turkeys from seein you( turkeys and hands swattin dont mix:) . so this is one of my hunting necessities i can not hunt without; an EXCELLENT product, cause anything that will run the skeeters we got down here off is okay by me.

When I hunted in Florida, I learned not to even THINK about going in the woods without my thermacell. It's still a habit I have here in Maryland even thought it's not quite as necessary. I would rather forget my arrows than my thermacell!

Anise is available in most cooking related isles in the grocery store. You could use a food scent to I suppose. You only need one drop.
Thermocell also has a pad made for scent. I have used my thermocell as a heater for lures before and it worked well IMO.

If you mean the spice, it's in all major grocery stores. Is that what you're referring to?

I use a thermacells on almost all hunts in Oct & early Nov. It's just as important as my bow. I've never had deer react negatively to the cell, if they did they got downwind of me so I assume it just my scent.

I am sure that is what he is talking about. Anise is one of the main ingredients in licorice so you can get it at any grocery store. You can also buy it from almost any sporting goods store or trapping supply store if you want to pay through the nose for it. It smells and taste like black licorice. It is also the main ingredient in Trails End #307 and what they coat almost all soft plastics for fishing in.

Thats wierd, I have never had any problems with mosquitos in November. I bet its the snow that keeps them away. lol!
