    Ticks and Lyme disease scare the heck out of me.
    I hunted Norfolk every year till the ticks came on the scene.I know too many people affected.
    I gave up on turkey for the same reason.Call me a woose but I will take up ptarmigan hunting if it means no ticks.

    I feel the same way. Haven't turkey hunted in 2 years now and that is definitely part of why.

    The same people who buy lottery tickets knowing they have a one in a million chance to win figure them or their dogs won’t get sick with ticks when ur chances are a lot better than one in a million.

    I have hunted down there for years. In the last five or so seasons, I've had one tick bite.

    And my husband spent a week on daily intravenous antibiotics due to tick bites.

    One tick bite is one more than I would tolerate... However ticks are everywhere so perhaps norfolk is worse than most protect yourselves and dogs everywhere you go...

    They are discussing bringing back the Lyme disease vaccination for humans.

    I got it in the early 90ís, I think they pulled it around 1995.

    If there was a lymes vaccine available I would gladly pay for one.

    If this is true, why did they make it not available anymore? I am sure many will be willing to pay for it.

    There used to be a vaccine called LYMErix, which was available to people for several years in the 1990s before being taken off the market in 2002. The drug was originally shelved, in part, because of fears around side-effects, which were reported as including joint pain and arthritis. But one of the researchers involved says those side-effects were not proven.

    "We could have prevented hundreds of thousands of cases of Lyme disease had that vaccine been deployed all these years," said Sam Telford, who was part of the original research and development team for the LYMErix vaccine.
