    Deer-tick-stages_facebook.pngodd but true this is the tick that delivers all evil- what is your plan?
    Dogs are excellent judges of character, this fact goes a long way toward explaining why some people don't like being around them.

    I caught a tick trying to catch a ride on my leg this past Sunday while on the AT in NY.

    If I were camping I would slather everything in permethrin.
    We are working on West Mtn. this weekend......we will see. 2 weeks ago, up there, I saw none. And I did bushwhack across the river bottom at the south lot at Anthony Wayne.

    Last night a guy at our shelter picked up two on the trip to the privy and back.

    I'm wearing treated pants, shoes and socks. None for me so far.

    Did a little walk in Shenandoah this past Sunday (4/30) from Rockfish Gap up to Jarmans Gap and back. Found one tick crawling on my leg (by the seats and antennas, on the mountain top, when I was headed back) between McCormicks Gap and Beagle Gap. Disposed of it and continued. Wasn't wearing any Deet, Permethrin, etc... Was a hot (mid nineties) but beautiful day.

    u.w.

    I second this: The Panhandle area is pretty bad right now. I sprayed with DEET last hike (in Chattahoochee) while my hiking partner had no protection. I found three ticks on me (two in the cuff of my pants, one on my shoulder); my partner had close to ten.

    Most seen was 20+ on a dog at a shelter. Owner groomed the dog for ticks every night and kept count.

    Virginia had a lot of ticks.
