It has been reported there is a new virus in MO that is carried by ticks. Last report there is no cure. If you plan to come to MO during the early season you might want to get some permethrin spray for clothes.

A buddy of mine has it,I think it's called the alpha gal virus or close to that..he can no longer eat any kind of red meat,he can't even touch a dead animal or he's in the hospital,he can pet his dog but if his dog even brushes against him,an immediate rash..He's a bird hunter and thats seems to be Okay but only poultry or fish,he's already told me "don't ask to help drag a deer"..There are studies under way,it has to do with enzimes in red meat I guess...So be very careful this year!!
