First time hunting ossabaw island on an early Sept gun hunt. I went out in the woods without putting on bug spray and did not take any with me fearing the wildlife would smell me. I hunted this really thick area that afternoon and was covered up with ticks, red bugs and sand nats. My dad pulled ticks off of me for an hour and I am sure I had over 100 chigger bites. We went home the next morning and skipped the rest of the hunt because I was eaten alive. I used 2 bottles of fingernail polish just to cover all the bites. Since that time I always were 100% deet when I go out there.
