I'm also one of those lucky ones who are highly resistant to poisin ivy. However, I too have heard the notion that this immunity can fade with time and exposure, so these days I'm careful around PI.

According to experts the more you come in contact the worse your reaction is. Your reaction now may be unnoticeable but with continued exposure your reaction would grow, possibly to a point where you would notice. My personal experiences tell me other wise(as stated above) but they are far from scientific.


Same here, if it is true that the more contact the worse the reaction I would assume I would have a terrible reaction by now, but still havent had one. Most of my teenage years were spent outdoors, and much of my adult life, I've identifiably have came into contact with poisin ivy many many times, and probably many more when I wasnt paying attention. I'm not so sure more contact = more reaction in all cases, It certainly doesn't appear to be the case with me personally.

Funny thing, when I first saw the subject I thought of this...

Moderator: feel free to move this to the OTW forum.

As for me, I usually fish with a buddy and don't carry a first aid kit.

I agree with Ryan. I don't even carry a Band-aid. *knock on wood* I'll cut myself tomorrow now.

But I don't worry about ticks like y'all do either. I pulled a lonestar tick off of my leg a while back. If I get that "red meat" disease I won't survive.

The best place to have poison ivy (or some thorny bushers) is outside your teenager daughter's room window.

I thought about this thread for long time and had it on my list to do a video follow up. These are the items I carry as a EDC while I'm fishing.
