QUESTION: Trying to find out what kind of vine I ran into yesterday while climbing a deer stand. While pushing limbs and vines down from around me, I noticed hair-like thorns stuck in my sleeves and hands. This vine had little green pods, slightly larger than a raisin, with those kinda yellow hair-like thornes approximately 3/8" long. They immediately stick into whatever touches them. Got one in my eye..no joke!
Here are a few other prickly vines that you might run into (literally) in your area, but they don't match your description as well as the burr cucumber does. You should do your best to avoid contact with them, however!
