    Yes Norfolk country is ground zero for ticks. Highly recommend tick protection products for both human and dogs if heading out there.

    That right there would scratch it from my list of places to hunt. My dogs are protected, people not so much. I have 2 friends who have contracted Lymes now. I'm getting close to paranoid about it myself.
    I 'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

I hunted them in the early 80ís, but gave it up by the end of the decade. Everyone got to know the release areas and the schedule, and trucks would line the roadways in the dark waiting for legal light the day after their release. Most of the birds would not flush, and chose to run for cover. So, when your dog was working a scent into a thicket, some guy on the other side was shooting at a running bird, often close to your direction. I saw guys arguing over downed birds that did flush after they both shot at it. The releases were always on LPCA properties, so it was open to anyone to hunt. After one day of being chased around, the birds that managed to survive were usually deep in the woods, on private property. The cycle would repeat itself on a weekly basis for the first few weeks of the season. It was basically a free for all, and I decided I wanted no part of it.

    Can't remember off the top of my head but it's about the price of a couple of birds.

    I look at it this way. I'm more concerned with the drive as there is a great incident of death and injury on the road. Also what you got there 100 000 residents living 24/7 in the area and the cases reported are few.
    However if it discourages some from participating more for me.
