Amen to that. Assateague was one of the most intense mosquito experiences I've ever experienced, and chiggers...if I never get bitten by a horde of those awful things again in my life it will be too soon. They give you the worst itching you will ever feel in your life! Do whatever it takes to mitigate that nightmare.If you hunt down this way, any early season you will need a thermacell. Without one you will get eaten alive. It doesn’t bother the game at all. For chiggers spray down with permethrin. It also works to prevent ticks from attaching to clothing. If you don’t spray down, you will regret it bc chiggers are horrible and usually you will get eaten up this early in the year. After a frost, chiggers arnt much of a problem.
Loggy, I did several hunts like that when it was a lottery hunt.
Now, last I heard it was first-come-first-served on hunt zones, meaning no draw, you just show up and sign in and they close zones as they're filled.
Long way to go for a maybe...
