In PA where I hunt the ticks are real bad. Usually have several on me at any given time. The deer may have up to 50-75 ticks on them so we just skin and butcher before we head home. I don't leave camp without spraying tick killer on my clothes. These are the red legged ones, very small and carry the lyme disease potential. The larva are like a grain of pepper and also can carry the disease. I HATE TICKS!
