While this is more likely to affect a fishin' fella than the usual hunter, there's nothing to say a shooter won't go fishing, or go for a seafood dinner:

More severe than Giardia in the west, but the same sort of thing to file in that personal computer between your ears.

Thanks to re1973 for this. Anybody else runs across this sort of thing, post it here.

Thats pretty dang gross. An scarey too!
That bit about the ring kind of makes a guy think that it would be a good idea to take somethin along to make a tourniquette (spellin?) with. Don't know if it would spread throughout your body before becomin noticeable if a barrier weren't already there though :confused: Awful easy to carry a couple feet of 550 para cord etc.

Yeah that is scary. Can this stuff spread to other parts of the country? Southern California? Florida?

On another note maybe the liberals should ban "Vibrio vulnificus".
:D
