Thanks for the good tip Sybil on how to remove ticks; I will pass it on far & wide; and by-the-way it works equally well with a gob of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly which makes the tick back out to get air too.
Many years ago my brother and I had a shared deer lease over in Mount Ida Arkansas (where you can dig diamonds) in the Ouachita Natl. Forest; and you would come back to camp with 75 to 100 ticks around your waist band, boot sock-tops, the bends in your knees, any place where the clothing was pulled tight enough that the ticks stoped crawling and dug in. It was amazing to me that something the size of a leaf of parsley, and almost as flat, could be as large as an English pea, totally full of blood, within two hours. It was equally as bad up at my cousin's place, 150 miles north in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
My cousin; Coyt Griffith, worked at the University of Arkansas there until he died, and he had a small farm 4 miles south of town abutting the Ozark Natl. Forest and the ticks were equally bad there. So until folks get out in the woods hunting in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas they don't know what "ticks" are all about. A hundred or so on your dog with another 100 or so on yourself, and then you are looking forward to the next days hunt.... LOL
