Ticks and Turkeys....

I read somewhere that Turkey`s can carry Ticks, so be careful when you put that bird over your shoulder to carry it out...….

I have slung no less than 170 gobblers over my shoulder, and never had a tick of lice problem.

Don't Gobble at me...

What a ridiculous, rude and disrespectful analogy to the soldiers who didn't get missed.!

I use a turkey tote to carry them out. I assume my Sawyer's Permethrin works if they come off the grass or off a turkey.

I did get one tick last week while hunting OH, in spite of my sprayed pants, shirt and taking a shower when I got home.

However, I could have acquire it from my yard in a routine walk through...they are everywhere by the numbers.

Lots of gnat's this AM.

About all birds harbor lice and ticks. I once wound up with a louse abut an inch long and a half inch wide in my hair after handling an injured Tundra swan. I felt something tickling my scalp and I ran my fingers through my hair and I felt this bit thing but I could not pull it out because it was so flat I could not grab it. I had to pull my vehicle off the road and comb the thing out. Kina gave me the Willies.
