For anyone hunting near or in the burn areas this year.

Poodle Dog Bush is a sticky, ill-scented plant, with bell-shaped flowers. It is covered with hairs that emit a chemical that causes symptoms similar to poison oak. Contact with the plant can lead to severe dermatitis including blistering of the skin, itchy irritated skin, and swelling. These symptoms may not show up for 12 to 36 hours. No pain is felt at the time of contact.

I stuck my hand in that the other day at the 3d range picking up my arrow. Got several small blisters and swelling on my knuckle. Itched for a day or two.

We have this same stuff were we deer hunt in D9. We were always wondering what is was. It is a big pain in the butt. I try to avoid that part of the mountain where it burned and they dropped the fire retardent.
