Default Unscented Sunscreen

What do you guys/gals use for sunscreen while hunting?

Do you put 1st sunscreen and then bug repellent or the other way around?

Thanks!

RB, Never have used sunscreen. I would think they would make one that is unscented. As far as bugs, alot of people recommend the thermocell (sp?)

No sunscreen here, either. I generally just wear a light cotton long sleeve shirt and roll the sleeves up for a bit if I get too warm. Our September season can range anywhere from mid-80's to low 100's.

As for bugs, thermacell is the way to go.

Trust me, camo paint has no sunblocking properties. I use thermacell for the bugs but have found no scentless sunscreen. Everything smells like coconut. I can get a burn if I am out for 15 minutes -- even on a cloudy day I can manage to get a little pink (natural born redhead) -- and I hunt in Texas where it was 80 plus during bow season last year. If you find a nonscented sunscreen I would LOVE to hear about it!!!

We have temps in the 80's and 90's (potentially) during our early bow season (2nd week of Sept.). I still just wear long sleeve shirts. I'm also typically hidden from the direct sunlight.....due to the foliage on the trees.

I think I'd trust covering up vs. trusting a product to TRULY be "scent free" (as in sunscreen). I'm not sure the people who make that stuff are aware of just how scent free it needs to be.

Just my .02
