If I'm reading this page right, the ticks DON'T die in frost, just become inactive: http://www.tickencounter.org/faq/seasonal_information

Anyone else have a different take/source?

The ticks last year were no joke.  My son shot a nice buck up on the camas prairie in Idaho.  I have never seen so many ticks!  They were on every square inch of that deer.  I feel like we put that deer out of its misery.  It was a very healthy, big bodied deer, but the ticks were out of control.

I am curious about the results of this study. Just as I am the past 2 years in the hunting regs the state is asking our help to report all moose sightings.. I find it ironic after a wolf population takes hold they ask for help on moose sightings.
If its brown knock it down

As a barometer, I killed a very large, healthy cow northwest of Mount Spokane in November and I did not find a single tick on her.  I also seen a number of other moose close up that I thought also did not have any ticks on them.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

So many free days, so few fish....
