American dog ticks, lone star ticks, and blacklegged ticks can all pose a threat during the hunting seasons.

  • The common American dog ticks and lone star ticks are not active from September through March.
  • Adult blacklegged ticks are active not only in the fall, but also on warm winter days. Blacklegged ticks can transmit Lyme disease. Unlike pets and humans, wild animals, such as deer, are not affected by the blacklegged tick and Lyme disease. Additionally, Lyme disease cannot be transmitted by the consumption of venison.
