Do Not Forget Bug Spray During Hunting Season

Hunting season and the cool weather is here. That means the ticks are gone, right? Well, not necessarily. A lot of it depends on location and weather. While some regions may have a blanket of snow by early November, other areas may still have temperatures in the 80s. There have been several years I was sitting in a stand on opening weekend and the high for the day was in the lower 80s.

When someone says the word "bugs", what do most of us think about? Chances are we think about mosquitoes, chiggers, gnats... etc. Believe it or not, ticks can be just has plentiful in winter as in the summer. As stated earlier, a lot of it has to do with location and weather.

Here is an example. Around 2009 a buddy of mine, two of my sons, and I were on a camping trip along the Angelina River near Jasper, Texas. Temperatures had been cool at night but daytime highs felt like they were in the 60s. After the sun went down we were sitting near the campfire and I was using a single burner stove to cook a Mountain House freeze dried meal. While we were all sitting by the campfire, I found two ticks crawling up my pants leg.
