The ticks are horrendous in my area. I hunted Letchworth a few times and each time had at least 3 on me one time I found 7. I don't think I got bit they were all on my clothes in the treestand except on in my hair on the way home. My buddy said the buck he shot in York had like 20 on it they were just all over his deer. To bad we couldn't crop dust the little bastards its the one thing I hate about deer hunting. Good luck trap and everyone
done dirt cheap!

My buddy shot a 9 pointer in Nunda and he killed like 20-30 ticks as it was hanging before he butchered

Yikes! Makes me kind of glad I don't hunt any more. How cold does it have to get before you stop seeing the ticks?

deer ticks are  active  anytime  temps are above  freezing ..... and it's not  just hunters getting ticks  ...yard  work walking  hiking fishing anywhere  and any  time  you  are near tall grass or shrubs.....and I have never seen the amount of ticks that's out there now....I would be checking my kids  every time they went outside to play

You don't need to be a hunter to end up with a tick bite. I finish my 21 days of antibiotics today   :clapping:

Man I must be super lucky - I do everything in tank tops, shorts and sandals from April thru October - even when I work my gardens, scout the woods/fields in the summer and hang my stands in September. I'm more in central NY around Waterville. My neighbor across the street says the same thing - he's covered with them when he turkey hunts in spring.  I wonder if I have something in me that they don't like or something - I've never even seen one on me.  Whatever it is I hope it continues.  Good luck to all that have been bit.

I wonder if a person's diet can have an affect. There is a garlic mixture that you can feed dogs that is supposed to be a natural tick and flee repellent.

Thats what I was wondering too  - not sure about garlic though - I don't eat much and my neighbor is 100% Italian - hahaha.  Maybe my hostess cupcake "diet" is finally paying off ? :laugh:

tics are active even below zero if on a warm host say a deer can still jump to you
if deer are hanging skin on and body cools down they will go dormant till warms back up
i have skinned deer in warm weather and warm animal and seen them very active and have skinned a deer after it has hung in cold weather for few days and seen them bairly able to move

Pretty critter - nice colors.  Looks like he would make a nice hat or gloves/mittens for ice fishing  :D
