    Our tick population here on LI is insane. My wife has chronic Lyme disease which she cannot beat. So if I am an archer and wanttio hunt deer in the tick infested woods here, what do I do? If I spray repellant on my legs and pants I would imagine the deer will stay far away. If I don't the ticks...

    Just a heads up, I pulled a tick off my son this weekend. We had it tested and it was a lone start tick. Good news is they don't carry Lyme disease but they can trigger an allergy to red meat. Just be careful out there!! I believe he got from our friends property in Yaphank

    I thought I would pass on a warning to those venturing into the Colchester area of upstate NY. I have been coming to the area for 47 years and have been living here for over 20 of those years. In the last two years I have had two deer ticks on me, with one imbedded in my stomach just a few weeks...

    Looking for some help with tick identification here. Must have picked up this little bugger while doing yardwork today, luckily I felt him immediately start to bite and picked him off before he could latch on. After looking around, my best guess is a male Lone Star tick, but I'm not too sure...

  8. NYS and NYC Discussions (licensing/laws)
    This non-sense that a NYS Pistol Carry license issued in Suffolk County is no good in NYC really ticks me off. I'm a Private Investigator and I will not do field investigations without my sidearm. An attorney offered me a nice little case that required interviewing and taking a sworn statement...
  9. Firearm Ban & Recent Events
    In light of the recent media focus on gun control, I have seen and heard some appalling reporting and opinions. Even conservative mainstays like Fox news have had more of an "anti" opinion and some of the reactions and misinformation I've heard have made me "face-palm". Here are some of my...

    I don't watch much TV, except for a few hunting shows on the Outdoor channel. I have yet to see one show that takes place in the Northeast! Not a one! Every state of the Union west, south and north of New Jersey, has been featured, but nothing in our territory, nada, zip, zero, zilch, bubkus...
  11. Suffolk County [Ranges]
    Which range has the least amout of ticks. Calverton, or LI shooting range ? I need to sight in at 200 yards for hunting season. So I will be walking back and forth quite a bit to the target.
