Are terrible this year, be sure and carry some spray because if not you'll be miserable in about 10-12 hours. Worst year I've seen in a while for them.

I spray my snake boots down with permethrin and wear this.

Very effective

Deet, minimum 40% works for me.
Spray boots and pant legs.

Ticks are bad this year too.
Check your dogs.
