LOL- I hate Ticks-I have hated them for years and especially since one of them suckers latched on to the back of my leg on a Kansas Hunt in 2012. Thankfully wife saw it and being a RN at the time knew how to get it off with no side effects.
Off to a great hunting season (started May 2nd): monster 2&1/2 hour hikes, four deer antlers, no elk antlers; seen two elk, 8 deer, 6 horses, 5 turkeys...hardly worth it! Best I could manage so far... Oh yeah- half doz. or so ticks!
