Can I ask if anybody else is seeing unusual amounts of ticks on deer in the South / South East of England ?? I have shot two Roe bucks and two Muntjac in the last week, and did not count less than 15 ticks on any of the carcases ??
Appreciate that this may be a lot less than in other parts of the country, but around where I am it is unusual to see so many on the bodies of the deer being shot !!
Having to get used to REALLY checking the dog, and myself after each outing. Some of them are bloody huge....
All the best.
