In brief: Protect ur self
Repellants w/deet, treatments to clothes and gear with permethrin, and physically denying access with tucked in pants / long-closed sleeves, etc.
, all encourage ticks to find someone else to munch on.

In brief: Avoid contact
Try to avoid places where the likelyhood of encountering ticks is high ( wooden areas) if this is not feasible, wear long sleeves, avoid shorts when going to the woods or use a tick repellent.
