Deer Ticks in Pa

PSU has a great article about ticks in Pa that every hunter or outdoors person should read. 

As a Hunter with a disability (paralysis) I am unable to feel from the chest down. This can present many dangerous situations (frostbite, burns, injury, etc.) including tick bites.

It's very important that after every hunting excursion or day in the field someone thoroughly checks my skin for any damage or bites. A tick can easily attach itself anywhere on my body and I would not be able to feel it.

If you are a Hunter with a disability don't forget to have someone check you over when the day is done. Lyme disease is no joke and ticks are everywhere in Pennsylvania!
