Ticks

Ticks my god they were bad this pass weekend with the warm weather and also this passed fall my dogs were just covered with them and myself. It doesn't seem to matter if it is Adams Co. or Potter Co. they are bad just wanted to see what others in their areas are seeing the same thing. And also what is the best thing to use on the dogs to prevent them from staying on the dogs. Thanks

Re: Ticks

Washington Co. also....Among 3 hunters and 2 dogs around 2 dozen ticks from a 4 hour hunt. All very small in size.

Now if there were only that many grouse........Maybe the ticks ate them.

Re: Ticks

Re: Ticks
