dealing with deer flies in the summer?
 
I have some land in rural Tennessee and during the summer months the deer and horseflies will eat me alive trying to work outside. I had to replace an air conditioner last July and need to do some more work this summer. I covered myself in Off deep woods spray and most of them stayed off of me (Although they still hung over me like a cloud :eek: ). Is there anyway I can deal with this or I am I stuck getting bitten to death (or using an entire bottle of spray) whenever I need to do outside work?

I wrap an old ball cap with flypaper. I also carry one of those bug zappers that looks like a tennis racket. Those are fun! And I smoke a cigar.
