So I've heard some people are finding them already. :bdid: I hate the little *censored*s with a passion. Anyone seeing them yet?

Went shed hunting last weekend up in goldendale with my dad, I get a call from him later that night that he found a tick digging in on the back of his thigh. He burned it out and cleaned it with peroxide, but that wasn't enough. He ended up getting rocky Mountain spotted fever, and had to get antibiotics from the doctors. Not the best way to start the year in the woods.

Saw a post on FB about using one of those hair removing rollers.  It was covered in ticks :puke:  I plan on keeping one in the truck to catch any that are missed by the naked eye.

I haven't been out much the last couple weeks, but prior to that I picked up one on the eastside, and flicked several off in southern oregon. The dog picked up several in Oregon, but i had not treated her yet, after treatment she was clean here. If its above freezing they are moving imo.

I spray flea and tick spray on my pant and shirt cuffs. No ticks.
