I had Giardia one time. Sounds like the same symptoms. I think Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever can be deadly tho.
Yes I found out later that it can be fatal if treatment is not started within 5 to 7 days of the onset of symptoms I waited nine days probably why mine was pretty severe what can I say I’m stubborn I don’t take vaccines when I get sick I’ll tough it out but I am getting older I need to keep that in the back of my mind

I need to get out and shoot a little myself but I’ve actually only hunted once during archery season in the last five years mainly due to the hot temperatures and ticks I’ve had Rocky Mountain spotted fever once and it is the sickest that I have ever been in my life not looking to do that again
Use Sawyer's Permethrin spray on your clothes. It does a good job of keeping ticks off you as long as you have all of the potential entrances tucked in or tightened up. If you do find one on your clothes, they are usually trying to get off you as fast as they can. Make sure you follow the directions on applying it. It is NOT like bug spray.

Oh yes it’s definitely different spray it on your clothes let it dry good for several washings after that

If you ever plan on hunting elk with archery gear, you up your odds of a shot opportunity double if not more if you can make shots at 60+ yards. I'm the same way in my home state. 30-40 yards on deer is max IMO. A treestand in a wooded setting makes anything beyond 30 almost impossible. In open areas, 40 is not far. 60 could be average and 70-80 could be common.
Distance increases error rate and inversely decreases KE at POI.

My son did the same. Got his bow back on a Wednesday, dialed it in Thursday, took off on Friday, and warmed up on this prairie maggot before spotting and stalking his deer. It has been a pretty good August for him.

I was able to fill my tag Saturday. I just started this stick and string thing in April after we got tags. Son had been on me for a couple years to try it. Glad I did.
