    I've encountered more ticks over here than snakes.

    We have diamondbacks. Plenty. My biggest killed was six foot two and as big as my forearm.

    The area is very "snaky". I have found snakes there last spring when we had a warm day. If your bored with snakes there were also plenty of ticks. Ah, springtime in the land of sage and sun!

    I don't like snakes on land, but the thought of a swimming rattlesnake while in a float tube just gives me the chills.

    My dog pissed on a rattlesnake when he was a pup. The snake just left the neighborhood (what would you do??). I suspect next time he might not be so lucky.

    Like the attitude, piss on them! Isn't there a joke about be bitten in a certain spot - "You're gonna die." If you don't like snake, ticks, scorpions & black widows, stay on the west side. All part of the experience. That is why I posted on the "tick twister".

    It's getting to where I can't go anywhere out of the city limits without picking up a tick.

    I was out fishing with my dog in the basin weekend before last. Between us, we picked up about 25 ticks. I would have to agree that this might be a bad year for them. I don't even want to think about what it would have been like if I was wearing just a t-shirt instead of a jacket over everything.
