If so what kind of gloves work best?

I have arthritis in my hands and cleaning a deer in the cold/rain is a little more challenging. Anyone else deal with this? Is there anything you do that helps?

Thanks,

Mel

I use heavy duty disposable dish washing gloves with the long arm guards on them. You can gut a deer with pretty much no blood on you at all. I use to get them at Dollar Tree but the last ones I bought were not worth a dang.

And to combat the cold and rain just do the gutting and skinning while the deer is still warm. The body heat from the animal should be enough to keep your hands warm with the exception of extreme cold temps.

I use surgical gloves. I don't mind the blood but it makes my hands much easier to clean when I have finished.,

I try to remember to wear them, but I usually just jump in to try and get the job done and forget the gloves.
I have big hands and have to go to a medical supply (Oakdell Pharmacy here in San Antonio) to get the X-large size. They are a bit tougher than the normal store bought ones too.

I like to use latex gloves to skin (being very careful not to touch the meat while skinning). Then after I'm done skinning, I discard the gloves and quarter the deer with my bare hands. This keeps the meat clean and pretty much eliminates any gaminess. I almost never gut them. I trim what I can from the ribs and neck and sometimes sneak in behind the guts to get the tenderloins. On a whitetail, you don't miss much by skipping the gutting and it makes it so much easier to keep your meat clean.

I have my son, or one of my nephews do the field dressing and loading. If they hear me shoot, whoever is closest knows he better have his knife ready when he gets back to the cabin. up

Grouting gloves from Home Depot work pretty well, when I remember them and remember to put them on.

Just wondering if you use the ribs or just throw the ribs away with the internal organs? I might be reading your post wrong but can you explain what you do after you take the front and back quarters off the deer?
