Leech Out And Touch Someone

Rick and "Skip" were more than just ordinary hunters.
They were LEECH hunters.
And not just any leeches - they sought out the elusive and potentially deadly Radium Leech.
It had been a rough year for leech harvest, but after hours of fruitless search, a fresh batch of them were discovered along Tumbleweed Creek by Pop Lumbold's farm, 5.4 mi south of Drakesport. Skip needed to wear special protection to shield him from the Radium Leech's harmful UV rays, but Rick remained foolish and ignored the doctor's warning. It was suspected years later that his arrogance (ignorance?) cost him his left kidney.
