    Where rubber boots and tuck your pants into your boots, or wear boots and tape your pants tightly around your boots, tuck in your shirt, spray bug spray around your ankles and waist. Scratch the sores until they bleed then apply nail polish or something else. They may have been seed ticks (immature ticks the size of the head of a pen).
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    OK got this from buddies that hunt in NJ and have a bad time with them

    over the yrs they tried lots of things, and said they wear nylons, pantyhose on there legs and arms, claim that wouks great,
    and not too hot and well, they cannot bite you through them they claim!

    you can buy permothine at most wally worlds too, its in a lot of bug sprays, just read up on the percentages, go as heavy as you like, but that stuff isn't all that good for you!
    they actually sell cans of it in 100% too if you look!
