    The point about ticks is a good one. I always assumed they were just a summer threat around here in the Northeast because everyone talks of tick season and nobody seems to get bitten from late fall through early spring. However, I just Googled it and the consensus seems to be that most ticks survive winter, they're just not active when the temps are below freezing.

    I'm hoping all the ticks are done for due to cold weather by the time season is here.
    Never a good or popular idea for transporting a fresh kill. I've never seen a deer that didn't have a hundred ticks on them when field dressing. Install a hitch and transport with a trailor or a proper roof rack.

    Odd. The one I shot 2 years ago had narry a tick. Seems as though the haul-it-in-the-back idea is dead by popular demand, though.

    Odd no doubt. I haven't even found a hundred combined in the hundreds of deer I've either killed or helped skin and process.

    The hitch carrier I posted is the best thing going for a non-truck wanting to transport something like a dead deer. It's low to the ground and easy to load too...

    Good luck,happy hunting,and straight shootin'...
