Default Waterfowl lice

These things kill me... you know the little bugs that crawl off your birds and end up on you within 2 seconds. not as much ducks as it is geese. I even had my bird between blinds and today after taking a shower found one of the darn things on my neck. any of you guys have problems with these little buggers?

sometimes i get them on my arm, they are flat little guys and tough to catch, but they will not give you any grief.

I do not believe that they are a vector of any sort of badness.

Yeah I feel your pain, Dan I guarantee you do too, you just don't know what he's talking about. I always get those little buggers crawling all over me, especially since I put my birds in the blind with me. They are annoying, but do no harm. Cody

Ya, something in my head keeps saying,"miss the bird, Chekov". And I keep blaming the shells.
