I went out looking for turkeys and found ticks!

"If you are going out turkey hunting, beware! One thing we were not short of right now is ticks!

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
