Should I worry about ticks effecting the meat at all? Im not talking about taste, but more is it safe to eat? I know the ticks were really bad this summer. I was constantly pulling them off of me this summer after spending time out in the woods.

If your meat has a "hint of lyme" taste to it I would spit it out!
