why are there so many ticks
Up until the last 5 years ago I never got a tick when hunting. I would go through the brushiest tangles hunting for grouse and rabbits and NEVER saw a tick. Now they are all over.Also the deer are covered with em. Used to be I would rarely find a tick on a deer and I always skinned them out and butchered them. Not that way anymore.What's really strange is the deer population is WAY DOWN. Any ideas why ticks are infesting the Notheast???
