    Reaction to fly bites around red stag.

    Shot a red stag on Thursday and noticed before gralloching it that there was a cloud of flies around it.
    Starting the gralloch ...sleeves rolled up these pesky things went on my arms and biting me , they were
    about 3mm long , not keds or midges .
    came out in about 10 big bites and now arm is red to my shoulder, incredibly itchy....any ideas ?
