    Has anyone found a good insect repellent that won't spook the deer?

    I know of nothing. I spray up and play the wind. My thinking is that if I am upwind the deer are going to smell me repellant or not so I just stopped worrying about it. Altitude helps too. I think the higher you get the harder it is for a deer to wind you.

    If the bugs are bad, I worry more about being eaten alive than about spooking deer. Deep Woods Off has always been good for me.

    you should definitely try Coleman odorless insect repellent! you can find it at walmart. it comes in a little pen like bottle and it is easy to carry. you can smell it when it is wet,but if you rub it on you and it dries, there is no smell . it protects good against the bugs, but doest scare the deer!

    A complete head net, hand glove nets and have your pants tucked into your boots. The squiters, ticks and fleas can't get to you then. Perhaps some noseeums can get through course netting.
