Having read the sad news on another thread about a young stalker dying from lymes disease I didn't want to detract from that thread by asking the question on there.
But, I have never had to pull a tick from my body.
I have gralloched and handled plenty deer that were showing ticks from moderate infestation to quite severe, but only once can I recall seeing one crawling up the sleeve of my fleece which I flicked off.
I spoke a few years ago to a retired stalker from up north and he said that the worse case he had was removing 27 ticks from his stomack and back one evening after a day on the hill, all around the area of where his belt would have been and he felt that it was too tight for them to negotiate past it.
Just curious as to why they don't seem to like my body??? Only thing to add is that although I will get bitten by midges they don't cause a reaction in any way and I am fairly tollerant of them.
