Rated 5 out of 5 by Scooter123 Works Great
Serious hunters already know about this one.
I could not bow hunt in Alabama or Goergia without one.

I love my thermacell for the early bow season. I hunt right next to a pond on one stand and a creek on the other and have yet to be bitten while on these stands with a Thermacell. I forgot it the other day and the results were a lot different with the weather being the same.

I bought a Therma Cell a while back when they first came out, and i still continue to use it as my #1 produst for repelling mosquitos. It doesnt have a scent that can spook deer. It works perfect and repels the thickest swarms, and i hunt the swamps of Northeast Florida.

I would not go without it, in Alabama the mosquitoes are bad during bow season around the creeks and swamps. I tried alot of sprays, but this is so easy and if you use the earth scent you provide cover. And most importantly it works very well.

In my experience, no. Either the breeze is strong enough that it carries the repellent away before it can repel mosquitos....or when it is still, the mosquitos still seemed to swarm around us on the water. I have used this product in the woods in treestands with EXCELLENT results however
The only time it wouldn't be effective is when you are moving, because it takes a few minutes before it fills the air with the repellent. So for skiing I wouldn't use it, but for fishing it would work great.
I am not sure. I did see three does and they were quite skittish so they could have possibly picked up the scent. If I would have been hunting (instead of using a video camera) I could have shot all three assuming they would have stayed at the location after the first shot.
there is an earth scent availiable, i used it all last season and never had a problem. i have not tried the normal repellent while out hunting. the earth scent is not available on the bass pro website either, you need to go the store to get this one.
I find if you have the holster to make it hands free, it works as great on the move as it does if your sitting in a tree stand. Also, they say it works best if it is horizantal, NOT TRUE, any way you use it it will work as long as the butane is still going and the pad is still blue.
It will not work well. Think about it, it is emmitting a smoke/ scent to protect you, if you move, you are moving away from the scent. That is why this thing has 3 bad reviews, those people were moving. this product also does not work as well in windy conditions. It is best in a ground blind where you contain the scent better. if you are scouting just use regular repellants.
Its not very effective against gnats, at least in my experience. In one place where i shoot, when you park you end up kicking up alot of gnats that swarm you and even after turning this on, they are still there. The number decreases but not enough to say it works well.
