Rich, take care partner, as we discussed on the phone and when we met in Newcommersrstown, one foot in front of the other. Lots of good folks with strong shoulders to lean on brother. Hope the chiggers dint get too much more of you.

Got to spray down, you know better than that. If you don’t, the reminder of scratching and itching and burning will. No quick fix for that.
don’t feel bad, I did it two years in a row in the early season in Nebraska and Missouri ……..NEVER AGAIN!

Early bow season started down here and I refuse to go into the woods until mid October after it gets colder. Too many chiggers and we have ALOT of those European hornets around….no fun stumbling across one of their nests. Most nests are underground and are very hard to spot until it’s too late. Last year I had nests near all 3 of my stands on 3 different properties. Everyone that I know who are out hunting this early season has chiggers….no exceptions! I want to enjoy my hunts so I’ll wait a few more weeks.😂

George, South Jersey is bad with chiggers.... Esp. sandy areas around the beaches...I got them bad once surf fishing at Sandy Hook....
