Ticks jump (well, more like get brushed) off of deer onto trees, grass, etc. They wait on the plants until another host comes by, then hitch a ride. I noticed them on grass at the Columbia Gorge Tick Preserve:

I am now constantly imagining ticks crawling on me when I'm in tick country.

A couple nights ago I had a dream that I was hiking in canvas sneakers and ticks were getting up my pants. Thanks Jerry.
