    No doubt developed by global warming worshippers to force outdoorsmen and women to stop eating meat. They'll turn us all into vegetarian hippies yet!

    It's no joke. I know of at least 2 fellow hunters here in TN that have it. We have a major tick/disease problem here in TN. My wife has chronic Lyme and Bartonella...

    Getting that disease would really tick me off.

    I know a non hunter that was rushed to the hospital after a big steak meal. They told him he had the meat allergy from a tick. He had early symptoms but brushed it off as indigestion :cry:

    No but some people seem to get a bit better after several years.

    And read up on other tick borne diseased like Powassan virus...nasty critters.

    Just ordered more permethrin.

    I'm down in FL but wear Rhino skin top and bottoms with permethrin on them before I hit the woods.

    Their new stuff does not come in camo but it says it also stops mosquitos and breaths better.

    My buddy got chewed up last weekend by ticks and I only had one on my hand.

    Brought home a lot of pork as well.

    Before you ask.

    Extreme quartering away shot with a two blade Wasp Jak-Knife. Ran 20yds and took a dirt nap.

    What?! This is madness! Little terrorists. I think if I contracted this disease I would fall into a deep depression

    It is like any other allergy. I actually have it. I have not stopped eating meat. Everytime I do I will break out in a weird looking rash and sometimes even get small hives. Really doesn't itch much though. I have a light reaction to it. Next time I get the rash I'll post pics of it.
