Ticks are real bad most deer are covered and if you sit on the ground you will have them on you quick. There is plenty in the Fort my daughter caught Lymes from a tick bite while hiking in the Fort few years ago and it got her real bad. She was really sick before they figured out what was happening and now has major joint issues. Also recently has shown an allergy to mammal meat she was just tested last week for the tick meat allergy don’t have those results yet. Ticks have become a major issue in all the woods and fields I hang out in up here.
