I usually carry disposable gloves with me when I field dress animals, but this morning, I didn't have any, and went ahead and dressed the deer anyway. Just interested to hear y'alls thoughts about how risky that is (whether whitetail, hog, etc) with regard to potential exposure to blood borne pathogens, etc. Sometimes don't use gloves? Never use gloves? Always use gloves?
Any other "musts" or "nevers" to consider when dressing an animal?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
