I was living that feeling for real on Saturday. Must have picked off at least 30 while hunting and another 20 or so while riding in the car to the hotel and another 3 or 4 after changing out of my hunting clothes and sitting in the room watching tv. Even found a couple the next morning. Bet the cleaning staff was thrilled.
I see them all fall into October where I hunt birds but they are the smaller sesame seed sized deer ticks at that time rather than the dog ticks/wood ticks you find in spring and summer. Some of the birds i shoot are full of them bedded into their neck.
