    Midge and Dogs

    I was out last night, the air was motionless, needless to say, as soon as you stood still for 2 seconds, you were decended on by millions of Midges, I neve had me dog, thankfully I was fully covered, but it got me wondering, what would I do with the dog in this situation? He gets Frontline, but that won't help for these........Can you use an insect repellant designed for humans on dogs?

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    After being out stalking and seeing the dogs face especially around the eyes covered in midge, i got him a midge net the same as i wear he doesn't mind wearing it and for a few 's saves him from puffy eyes where they were biting him.

    I might try that, I do have a spare, but I don't think he will go for it....Nothing Ventured!!

    A Scalibor collar is licensed to repel sandflies so would likely work.

    No prob,s if you got a BMH you only lay the track on windy days . I have and old cover in my roe bag and just throw it over old buck if we are doing a bit of still stalking.(ambush type )

    No I am hearing first time about it. But this may be too risky.
