“It brings back a lot of memories, the scent does,” Skip Theobald said. “And it works. That’s No. 1.”
Skip Theobald, who grew up in Brewer, remembers he and his grandfather using Ole Time Woodsman when they’d go fly fishing together. The strong-scented concoction would keep them hidden from the hoards of blackflies and mosquitoes, biting insects that inevitably pester anglers throughout the summer in Maine.
I am sorry that I did not get an opportunity to respond to you earlier. It certainly is a fast changing world in which we find ourselves.
As for your questions, the rule of thumb for application is every 10 feet, every 10 days. Start over again after a heavy rain.
Just remember that a coyote is not a large dog, so spray directly on the ground or on any vegetation or object up to 12 inches.
If you have a 20x20 garden, I always recommend protecting an area 6-10 feet out from your garden.
That being said, a couple of bottles should do you just fine. Experience tells us that after a period of time, animals will instinctively cross off your place as their favorite buffet which means that you may only need to spray less often.
Also remember that coyotes EAT rabbits, squirrels, deer, skunk, moles, voles, and most other furry critters. And best of all, they all know it!
Have a safe gardening season with a lot of bounty!
All the best,

My husband loves this stuff and it works!! Lori
I originally bought your Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope to repel biting black flies. I am very allergic to those bites and have to carry an epi-pen. I have not been bit for two years since using your product. Basically I dabbed it where skin might be exposed and on my scarf. This month I went on a week long backpack in the Hoover Wilderness in California and the mosquitos were just rabid. I did not want to stain my clothes so I put the juice on my palms and rubbed them together. Then I ran my palms over my clothes. NO stains and NO mosquito bites. NO more DEET for me. Great product.

"I am writing a request for Old Woodsman….my husband is out and can’t find it anywhere! He won't use any other product because “they don’t smell like old woodsman” I swear he would wear it for after shave if allowed!"

Been wanting to get some Woodmens Fly Dope since I first used it 30 years ago. Is it possible to order a bottle & get it sent out right away---heading for Canada in 10 days.
