Carry a bottle of white vinegar with you. If you get one rub your exposed skin with it and rub some on the bear. It will keep the bees hornets and wasps away

Interesting! I'll have to try this... especially since a person I plan on hunting with has a pretty severe bee allergy.
Ha! Yes I do! I saw this tip in another thread and took note of it. ;) :tup:

It also was a good reminder that the wasps will be out for early season, which I hadn't considered.

Doesn't soaking the bags in vinegar give off a smell for the animals? Will it come from your pack and spook them?

Cool tip, thanks!

We always carried black pepper, but you still have a few ornery yellow jackets.
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.
Psalm 144.1
