Default Ticks

We never really had a tick problem here in NH until a few years ago, but we are starting to see more and more as time goes on. The buck i shot this year was covered with them, is anyone else seeing an increase in the tick population?

I'm in NH too and have seen, in the spring, where the moose scratch against a tree andhundreds of ticks fall onto the snow but not the deer.
These were big fully engourged ticks, I guess it's common for the moose to have many, many ticks.

I remember a bad tickyear - 2003 maybe.Spring time in NH is ticks, blackflies and mosquitos. Probably the biggest reason Ihaven't hunted for turkey.

I haven't seen a dead deer yet this year but I haven't had a tick on me since August either. If I get one I'll look it over and let you know.
