I shot a fox sunday night, with a 125gr sierra hollowpoint 30-30 nice tore up the hide to bad to save it so I got the tail. I washed the blood of the tail and hung it up. Well the next morning I was messing with it and all the fleas on it jumped on me, not really knowing what to do a called the docter's offfice and asked if there was a human flea shampoo, the laughed and refered me to the vet. The vet gave me a sample of flea and tick shampoo and now I am parasite free.

If you'll lay your animal(any of them) outside, and sprinkle some moth ball flakes on them the fleas will disappear in just a few minutes. It's a pretty good trick to use if you don't have a lot of time to wait on the fleas to go on their own.

"tore up the hide to bad to save it"

They're usually pretty easy to stitch up from the inside with a curved needle and dental floss.

Sorry 'bout the fleas.

Every rabbit we shoot here in PA has fleas, even in Feb. with temps in the low teens! I keep my hound on flea treatments the year-round.

It always surprises me that even dedicated rabbit hunters never notice this until I show them.
