Studies have shown that if you reduce the deer density to about 10 per square mile, you dramatically reduce the tick abundance, and Lyme disease is dramatically reduced also.

Are you ever intelligent AT ALL ?

Benzatropine?

Procyclidine?

Tetrabenazine?

True, and if you wear white pants, you can see them better. Problem is that deer ticks are much smaller than regular ticks and harder to see on clothes/skin.
Foretunately for us, most of our exposure to ticks is in woodtick areas and not as many deer ticks. White pants are ok for hiking, but not the kinds of outdoor stuff we are doing up north.

So, when you're in the forest, you wear your white Elvis jumpsuit? Doesn't that scare the deer away? What about the sequins?

if you need to deal with the meds. best folks to talk to is your doctor where ever you go. and have them talk to who ever is the company or companies that make the meds. in order to make sure there is enough for this season.
.
also, doctors have in most cases, knowledge of the tests needed to test for the disease.
.
as for deer. they are not responsible for the ticks, nor are they responsible for the meds.
.
as for your own self. take the precautions of what was stated by folks on the thread here to make sure you do not get attacked by the ticks that carry the bacterium. it helps to have a person help out in spotting any ticks in areas you can not see on your body.
You obviously didn't see the NEWS story about the shortage of lymes meds right now.

The "tests" for lymes illness are not clear and fullproof. Many people with lymes are sick for years with no clear isolation and no effective treatment.

Lymes is NASTY!!

The DNR can take a leadership role and push promiscuous hunting just like they do with AIS control.
When presented with lyme illness and shortage of meds to treat same the majority of public will support culling the deer herd.
Unfamiliar with the term so I looked it up. The only reference I could find online was on a law enforcement site. There,'promiscuous shooting' is used to mean a random shooting without regard to target. That doesn't sound like a good idea to me, especially in a metropolitan area.

It really is up to the individual to protect him/herself from tick bites. Lyme's is a terrible disease, I know, having a family member and a neighbor who fell ill with it, not to mention witnessing what it can do to unvaccinated dogs. Still, it seems more prudent to me to encourage people to dress appropriately (Wade described what to do with pant legs) and spray on tick repellant for extra protection. Wear light colors outdoors so that ticks are spotted more easily on your clothing, and do a full body tick check when you peel off those clothes.

Please, do NOT shoot indiscriminately at deer.

"Promiscuous" is the term I used. It means to harvest something with no regard for limits, basically to eliminate it.

This technique is used when, for example, to harvest ALL fish from a lake that will freeze out and kill all fish in the lake. So the DNR will open fishing allowing all fish to be taken because otherwise they will be wasted anyway.

Okay, so if I'm understanding you correctly, you're suggesting no limits on off-season deer within city limits, and then harvesting all that venison so it isn't wasted?

I get your concern about limited antibiotics and the threat of Lyme's disease, but I think shooting critters on small parcels of suburban/urban property is riskier than taking your chances with the ticks. That, and I believe baiting will only increase the number of deer downtown, despite the intention. One positive thing to note, though, is that more cities are allowing a small number of laying hens on city lots. As mentioned by someone else, those birds have a voracious appetite for ticks and mosquitos and all manner of nuisance insects. And an added bonus is, no one's ever been killed when a chicken accidentally discharges an egg.

That was just Schmahl. He is borderline illiterate, hence his coining of the term.

During deer hunting season, ticks are already done for the year.

Ever hear of 'painters pants', they'd be white.

very true. they are on their way to finding spots to hibernate.
.
as for painter's pants. they also come in denim. my husband uses the jeans type for as part of his uniform. this way he has pockets to carry what he needs on the job as security.
.
also, there has been studies where the deer ticks are more in areas where there are white footed mice. since the rodents are the primary carriers of the Lyme disease. and they could be living in buildings where no predators like cats live.
.
http://www.wwhd.org/TLD_CD/ticks.htm The white-footed mouse is the primary carrier of the Lyme disease spirochete in CT. Deer ticks become infected with the Lyme disease spirochete after feeding on an infected mouse.
White-footed mice live in wooded or brushy areas. They build their nests in hollow logs, tree stumps, cracks in rocks, or burrow underground. They feed on seeds, leaves, insects and small rodents, and are active all year round.
.
http://www.aldf.com/lyme.shtml The prevalence of LD in the northeast and upper mid-west is due to the presence of large numbers of the deer tick's preferred hosts - white-footed mice
....White-footed mice serve as the principal "reservoirs of infection" on which many larval and nymphal (juvenile) ticks feed and become infected with the LD spirochete.
.
this one has the picture of the range of said rodent: http://icwdm.org/handbook/rodents/whitefooted... The two most common and widely distributed species are the deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus, Fig. 1) and the white-footed mouse (P. leucopus).

Everywhere deer exist there are large enough open spaces for an archery hunter to safely shoot with no risk of harm to humans. Many suburban lots are over 5 acres and could be hunted on. Heck back in the '60s you could shoot arrows anywhere in suburbs and then Socialism took over and now archery is in the same class with firearms. A deer rifle can kill a human at 7 miles, and arrow is effective to about 100 yards with most archers not shooting over 50 yards.

If bait could be used deer could be lured into perfect spots to be shot with NO risk to anyone.

Or we can keep on fighting lymes with shortages of needed meds.
