Haven't had many up here in northern Vt but I shot a buck today and after taking care of it and hanging it up my wife found one on my back as it was crawling up my shirt. I hate those damn things.

I've never seen a worse tick year. Wonder if it has anything to do with the inordinate lack of consecutive killing frosts

Real bad here in NJ as well! I do think it has to do with the wet humid weather and the lack of a consistant frost this late in the year. I had a guy (non hunter) help me with my stand this week and he almost crapped his pants when he pulled at least a hunderd ticks off himself. Funny thing was it wasn't even that thick of an area we were walking in.

havent found any on me this season, thank god. I realize the risks of them now that my mom passed away due to a tick carrying lyme disease. be careful with them!

You think after a couple good frosts and snow they would have taken cover - jeez
