      Bug juice
      My experience with bugs in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming probably isn't far off from what you get in Utah.  I agree with the others who have posted responses from the Northwest or Rocky Mountain region--mid summer would be best for our testing.  In the areas I frequent, ticks and mosquitos are a definite problem.  Additionally, we have deer flies and what I refer to as horse flies--the Arnold Schwarzenegger of deer flies.  With these guys I like Leonards idea of 1/4 inch plate steel--it would be more difficult to pick me up and carry me off!

      We have a couple of insect repellent tests we couldnt get to from last year. I particularly want to give the Sawyer Gold a good work out with black and deer flys. Weve also got the Sawyer and 3M extended protection (12 24 hour) mosquito repellent. Im looking for suggestions as to when and where. I assume, for the black flys, New England but how early could we start and still have a good test? How about deer flys? Im thinking somewhere along the Gulf Coast or maybe the Sierras for the mosquitoes.  Any suggestions?
