Looks like this spring is going to be a tick-fest in Henry Coe so watch out. Did Flat Frog>Middle Ridge> Creekside>China Hole yesterday and when we got back to the parking lot found four on me, one already stuck in. Found another one happily sucking my blood when I got home :cryin:. Couldn't believe there were so many so early in the year. Heck, it's the middle of winter. Anybody else getting them already? Also is it normal for the bite to be sore?
