      I would almost rather git caught by the wife with the girlfriend than suffer the thousand chigger bites I suffered on mah legs when workin' on pipeline fer mah dad's gas company in 1987!
      If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.

          Where have all the birds gone Jimmy? Last time I went quail hunting we had to kick the birds to get them to fly (Farm raised)

              I was hiking Kennesaw Mountain a few weeks ago with my daughter. We found a nice lookout spot on a big rock to take a break. I feel like huntfish's girlfriend now- Although I only wear a Double A with stuffing. Darn Chiggers

                Avoid vs. Ignore

                By what I have read here, it would appear there is no effective repellent for chiggers. So, ignore is the other option: When you go into the woods go nekked and run barefoot and you will have so many other bites, wounds and assorted personal injuries that a few dozen chigger bites will go totally unnoticed! You have my word on that! --jk--

                  Just reponding to the past discussion on Chiggers.

                  A non- toxic prevention of chiggers is plain rubbing alcohol.
                  Pour it on your clothes and let it soak thru to the skin just before you go into the brush. Every so often get a paper towel and soak it in alcohol. Drop your drawers and wipe yourself down. Might sting a little. Splash it on your socks and let it soak down into your boots. Splash it around your waste and under your arms.
                  You can also use Listerine.

                    As far as a cure for the itch, amputation help's some.

                      A good quick cure for the chigger itch is scratch the bump with a serrated knife blade and dab with salt. Works for poison ivy too.

                        Never had a problem with poison Ivy until the last few years. It just seems to jump on me nowadays. I found a product that stops Poison Ivy in it's tracks (post exposure). The brand name is Tecnu, you can find it at the drug store.

He never had any problems with chiggers and we shot plenty of quail and dove.

                              Bein a barefoot boy in Dekalb County when Hwy 155 to McDonough was a dirt road (4 lane now), livin in a house that Sherman kept his horses in durin the War of Northern Agression and runnin thru the woods almost naked most summers, I never did get chiggers till I became more sofisticated and had to grow up. Now I am very alergik to poison and chiggers.
                              I thought about this a lot while I done a bunch of scratchin one time and remembered that Mama always made us takes baths with "Octagon Soap". I think it is Lye based and not like the stuff most use today. I bought me some. It used to be octagon in shape, but not anymore. I use it now, after I go into the woods and ain't got scratchin problems no more.
