I'm curious what you mean. Does one put the vinegar on their skin? Spray it on the meat? Thanks in advance

Blazing hot above eburg, lots of does and fawns, one spike by two. Tough hunting and the air is terrible.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

That's what I've heard is the vinegar on the meat or chili powder and a couple other things will keep the bees away

As I'm muzzleloading this year, I took a buddy out this morning to a new area for both of us, to try and get his archery buck.  Saw lots and lots of doe, but no bucks.  By 8am, the heat was so bad that even the doe disappeared to stay cool.  So we switched over to dove until about noon, then headed home.  Got 8 between us, so not too bad if a day.

Nowhere in your incoherent rambling did you come close to what can be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber having heard it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

I havent gotten to try it out yet but i have been told by numerous people to rub it on any of your exposed skin and also on the animal. They say a bee wont even come close to you

Sounds like a blast! Pretty good eating? Never had dove

Lots of does again tonight. Just a matter of time and we will bump a buck.

Had a whitetail buck at 42 yards but that is a tad out of my comfort zone so.passed. Very hot and the ground was so dry there wasn't much stealth. :D  :D

Over 20 miles hiked so far, hot and miserable and definitely VERY crunchy. I've had a few opportunities at 60 and one today at 43, no legal bucks yet but I can't eat the horns. 60 was little out of my really confident range, the heat is definitely slowing things down.

I was able to shoot a buck in the high country yesterday. It was hot. Got stung 3 times taking care of it. Packed the deboned meat to a shaded creek near camp. Hike it to the truck this morning.

Quick version:

Packed in Thursday night in the dark and met up with 2 buddies who were bear hunting. Woke up Friday and headed to the basin I planned on hunting solo. Saw several bucks and one shooter. Spent all day in the basin with nothing lining up. The bucks bedded in bad spots. The next morning I went back to the same spot and located the same group of bucks, only this time the buck i killed was with them. They bedded in a great spot, I looped around and came in on top of them at 10:30am. I peeked over the edge and I was directly above the bucks. Literally 90° below me. Shear cliff. I went to full draw and leaned over. But it was too steep for a shot. Anchor point was off and I didn't like my bubble. I came back off the edge and let down. While doing this a small buck saw me and blew out taking the bucks with him. I quick counted and saw there were only 4 bucks. I knew there was 1 still under me. I immediately went to full draw and leaned over the edge. There was the buck standing just off the cliff edge looking around. I picked my spot and let it fly. I put my binos on him and could see foam coming out the entrance. The exit was pouring blood. He went about 100 yards and bedded up. That's were he died. I packed him about 4 miles to my tent that afternoon and then the next morning I woke up and packed him to the truck. Weighed my pack when I got home. 103#s.
