    Agreed. NOT something we should test.

    That almost sounds like African Bees, seeming how you had to run about 50 yards. That's a definite bummer !

    I think I still have one in my pack, so I'll have to see if I can identify it...

    So I found one in my bag. Its a yellow jacket, and looking at the size of it, there had to be way more of them than I originally thought, because they're pretty small and it was a cloud of them and my dog was nearly half covered.
    Just glad it turned out ok.
    Back to the woods I go!

    Hey, I just saw this post again and remembered that I wanted to mention to you about this new (to me) bug repellent I found. It's not for the bees but just general nuisance bugs. I bring my boys (3 & 5) out with me often and have been using "Mighty No Bitey" bug spray on us. It seems great so far. It's a bunch of essential oil type stuff, might be all organic as well. Smells minty/ lemonyish. No residue or lingering smell yet seems effective for multiple hours. 8oz for $10-12. Also they make a version specifically for dogs, (not cats and dogs) just dogs. They call it "Ruff on Bugs".

    jg, good to see a hen!

    Barnacle, Love the bug dope names! I'll have to look around for those and try them out.
    I've been busy the last couple weeks, found a real nice chicken last weekend at a campground I was staying in, otherwise just finished up all the lobsters I had from a couple weeks ago.
