No chigger experience, but yes these are reddish brown tick/crab shaped. Very small but can certainly see them. Could be chiggers, could be moose ticks, could be some other insect. Certainly only get them in high concentration moose areas and in low hanging brush, typically in NW Maine.This is an interesting thread. I spent 30 years in the Army and was stationed and trained in many locations, the majority being in the southeastern and Midwest USA. Chiggers were common there and I had them many, many times. The difference between them and what I had on me in Allagash is that I never, not once, saw a chigger on me and in Allagash I clearly saw tiny red, tick like bugs.
