I ALSO GOT 67 TICKS ON ME. NEW RECORD LOL? WHAT IS EVERYONES WORST HUNTING TRIP? THIS MIGHT BE MINE LOL. PLUS IT WAS HOT AND I DIDNT SEE A THING. BUT THAT IS WHY THEY CALL IT HUNTING AND NOT KILLING ANIMALS. SO WHAT IS YOUR WORST HUNTING TRIP?????

One morning, I walked to my stand....and could not find it anywhere. I honestly thought it was stolen, and I was pissed! So I sat at the base of a tree and waited for the sun to come up.

After the sun came up, I looked up in the tree I was leaning against, and there was my stand

I must not have been awake yet[8D]

I don't know about worst hunt but last weekend my buddy and I were down filming in Illinois and the ticks and chiggers are so bad it is scary!!! We both have so many chigger bites I am running out of clear finger nail polish to put on them!! My buddy was way worse he had to go to the doc and get a shot for his!!! Darn things!!! Heck even the loggers quit working because of them.. Walt

The Chiggers just bite you they do not go into your skin LOL. I put on bug spray, and have no problems unless mother nature calls. And I had them where the sun don't shine. When you get home fill your tub and put a little bleach in it and soke, it will help. I live in Chigger Country.

I am head to toe in chigger bites.... And that was just from putting the game cam out and checkin it. Two days in the woods on the eastern shore of maryland. I think the seed ticks are just as bad. I prolly had 1000 on me at one time and thats no joke.

I treat my fall hunting duds with Repel Permanone spray. I have no troubles from chiggers or ticks.
