An absolute essential for sportsman during most of the year is insect repellant and sunscreen. This is especially true for spring and summer hunting or off-season activities. Whether it’s turkey hunting, hog hunting, or scouting for deer, spraying down with insect repellant and sunscreen can protect you from the sun and keep potential serious insects like ticks at bay.

Permethrin insect repellent treatment from Sawyer is made for use on clothing and hunting gear such as backpacks and boots. A single application of Permethrin lasts 6 weeks or 6 washings, whichever comes first!

As a hunter, especially in climates like Texas, it is important to protect your skin. Most of the time this compromises scent control. Fortunately, Sawyer makes a scent free sunscreen for hunters!
