Hello folks,

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.

Never use them, even on hogs. Hogs I think is where the greater risk is, but still have never used them on pigs.

I use them if they are handy on deer, I would probably use them on pigs for sure.

Never use to, it was part of field dressing. Pigs always. Now I use them because of not much water around at lease.

Very risky. I'd quarentine myself until Sunday, and ingest large amounts of alcohol. Just to be safe.

I don't usually bother with them. If I start out trying to use them, I usually knock a hole in them before I am finished and end up throwing them away anyhow.

Always use on pigs most the time on deer especially if I have a cut on my hand. Keep several boxes of gloves at camp and keep a half dozen pairs in my trauma kit in my truck.

I try to always use gloves. Clean up is easier too.

I used to never, but usually do know... And only because of ease of clean up. Not worried about anything else.

Never have used in 30 years. I don't mess with pigs.
