I hate those saw palmettos in Florida. For Texas (where I am now), it is cactus.

definitely the Itchy stuff. Oak, Ivy, Sumac. all of it. briars are no issue to me. Ivy is more common, but Oak sucks so very much.

During tournaments, I think I dislike running into stinging nettles as much as anything due to the afterburn.

Poison oak now that I'm in CA, it was poison ivy out in the midwest. I can deal with all the thorny/scratchy/prickly stuff, but I react very badly to any of the urushiol producing plants. Even nettles don't bother me much, they only sting and itch for a minute or so and then it's over for me.

Not only do we have lots of poison oak, but tons of yellow star thistle. Crazy sharp spines...see pic here.

I felt the same way until I ran into some nettles at Camp Cullom DGC. Maybe it was just something about the growing conditions last year, but those were some of the most painful nettles I've ever encountered. Never mind that it was 90 degrees out, I went back to my car from the farthest point of the course just to put some pants on.

I'm sure down south and east they will mention the Kudzu.

Pioson Oak & Ivy when Living in the NW. Up hear in Alaska its not so much the plants as the wildlife I would be looking out for. The one plant though is Devils Club that can give you some trouble.

Nothing as bad as a dose of the ivy (oak in western parts). Dang insideous plant, that attacks without provoction. Our game seriously does not allow for one to completely stay out of the stuff. a couple healthy doses and I am very much more aware, but still from time to time.
Second, is wild rose bushes, mixed and hiding in brush, stuff grabs and rips, skin or clothes. Sometime you just don't see it. Good thread.

Kudzu really isn't that bad down here. But briar patches though, those are the ones that really get cha.
