Time to Start Checking

So here we are... Tick Season has begun.

I pulled my first one yesterday,
 
I am sure guys south of here have  already been seeing them but with a host of tick born illnesses you can never be too careful.

Relax,

I hear you Charlie. Went stumping yesterday and pulled off at least twenty.

Been scouting/stumpin for a month or so now and found one buried in my back yesterday. Too big to be a deer tick but I have to keep an eye on the spot now. At least half of my friends have lymes.

I don't usually see too many here around home. I killed a doe early last season that shared a few with me though. Didn't realise it at first, but felt the little buggers on my neck after I'd gotten her home. Like I said, I usually don't have problems with them where I hunt. I don't know if the unusually warm weather last fall had something to do with it, or not. It's amazing how well they can hold on when you're trying to pull them out of your hair.  :eek:   A couple of my buddy's have a camp in Bainbridge, Ny, and I've never seen deer ticks like they have down there. I've rolled deer over down there to gut them, and their stomachs were literally crawling with what looked like hundreds of them. I have noticed that they seem to be more attracted to some people than others for some reason. Maybe It's just coincidence, but one of my friends can't go to the outhouse and back at his camp, without picking them up.

I am one of those guys you describe Bob.

I cant even look at the woods without catching a few. Permithrin has been my best friend.
Relax,

Pulled some stands here on Sunday and found a tick setting up camp on my stomach later in the day. Quite a meal there. Couldn't have been there more than an hour or two.  Just a little red dot there now.
