sure looks it! you could always wipe it on your arm and see in a couple hours.... JK

poison ivy typically has a vine with a reddish tint to it as well as "hairs" on the main vine!

Well I took this picture in my back yard. Saturday, I was clearing some brush, cutting down some brushes and didn't think much of it. Monday, my arms, shins and behind the knees started itching. If I got poison ivy, I would describe it as a mild case but still, I'd like to know since my kids play back there from time to time.

I found some pictures on the net and one in particular looks REAL close. I know my picture isn't great but I figured this would be a pretty good place to ask since I'm sure these folks have encountered the stuff on the course. Thanks.

Yes poison ivy has the red where the leaves come off the stem.

Yup, that's PI.

FYI: some people are not affected by it.....YET. Just like bee stings, sensitivity to PI can, and almost always will, develop over time and repeated exposure.

Look for 3 notched leaves with red stem. I get poison ivy pretty bad so I try to keep an eye out for it.
