    Looks like a fun pastime. There are times when I wished I lived much closer to my deer hunting area.-Misako

    Scotty, very serene and lush. Wonder if those woods in your area are infested with ticks like they are here in Virginia? Lyme disease is prevalent here in the mountains and I don't just expose myself to those critters if I don't have to. Great pictures . Jim

    Jim after removing the trail cams and a 5 hour drive home I did find 1 tick on my but we have taken plenty of deer from that parcel of land and thats the first tick I have seen. I was happy to see a few bucks in the area but it was what i didnt see that made me happy... no yotes

    Scott - nice pictures - what make model of camera do you have? I don't go in the woods without a camera any more. Having trail cameras out year round is like having multiple Christmas's - just love picking up the camera cards every couple months and never know what you will see. I have gotten pictures of deer, bear, foxes grey and red, coyotes, fishers, Had one of my cameras stolen last year - it was a real bummer !!

    Nice Photos Scott...The fawns are hitting the ground now here and the song dogs are on the move. With all the baby critters its a bit of a buffet...My calling efforts have been unrewarded so far but I think its simply because there are quite a few guys in my area with e-callers.

    Ticks and Lymes...In another month the tick population will peak...I haven't found any yet this year on myself but my son did last week after an all day ATV ride.
    Last year in July I got into a nest of ticks during a yote hunt...I bet you I removed 30 or more from myself, standing naked by my pickup truck and flailing around trying to rid myself of them...they infested my truck too as I didnt find them all before I climbed in the seat (clothing back on), They would climb on my wife though, every time she got in the truck for about a week...she was NOT pleased. Backwoods Off helps some , just be careful about applying it to your Butt....Bloo

    Don't forget to look in your belly-button. Easy to hide there.-Misako

    My wife too is a tick magnet, a couple of times in August I think see managed to place herself squarely in a nest of seed ticks and I can also confirm that she was not a happy camper!!! She had an uncountable number of bites, seems they bite take a few steps/leaps and bite again. The seed ticks are so small but I think the are all teeth, those critters are hungry! Well, life is much better for me if she stays tick free. Jim

    Wood ticks are the norm...easy to spot in most places provided that ...well...you know. The deer tick or seed tick are scary as they are so small and pale in color can go unnoticed for too long.

    Mike...the belly button is the first place they go! Mine was level full I think in last year's event. One or two never bothered me before...deer flies are more bothersome for me as they leave a nasty welt after the painful bite lets you know you got nailed. Parasites just suck.....

    I should get my T-cam out and see what is lurking around my hunting grounds. Lots of coons and skunks for sure....the skunks help keep the yellow jackets out of my yard and the coons keep eating everyones petfood. The local domesticated deer can be seen almost every evening...standing on their hind legs eating out of the neighbors bird feeder. Tender new growth every where and they still prefer birdseed? ~Bloo

    Might be getting even with birds keeping them awake. My old black lab used to let a full grown coyote eat his dog food.- Back to ticks. I have seen a few on Deer and many on turkeys. Depends on a wet spring and boy do we have one. Texas and Oklahoma will be next in line.-Misako

    Ticks - They sound right nasty. Would sure spoil your hunting. Not a problem here though you do find a few on pigs. Our biggest problem is sandflies especially on overcast days, but if you climb high enough (1,000m) you leave them behind. - David

    Scotty Bee....I noticed the buck in photo #2 looks like he is gonna be a contender, showing good potential with those fat pedicles! Hope he makes it thru the summer....then into your crosshairs!

    BTW.....Scott, have you heard that WV opened season for deer using an x-bow this coming fall! ~Bloo
