You can catch all kinds of stuff out there. Thats why I always wear gloves and wash my arms down with alcohol when done. Some guys rub down with Clorox when finish, I don't go that far, but its better to be safe than sorry.

The way the last few hogs smelled that I shot and dressed made me want a haz-mat suit. Sounds like that may not be a bad idea. I guess my cut and chemical resistant gloves will work fine for now.

I always wear latex or nitrile gloves when cleaning deer or hogs. I don't think hogs have any more diseases than any other wild animal. Always a good idea for gloves and to wash hands arms well afterward. And don't forget to put that dip or chew in BEFORE you start skinning or quartering.

That's what I swear by! I even have a pair of thick rubber gloves wtih me to load the hog without touching the hooves. I'm a knife maker, I always have cuts and scrapes on my hands and fingers. No need in taking a chance.

hey bjank, what does touching the hooves cause? I know that there are more bad bugs in the bloodwork on animals today than anybody could identify but this is a new one for me. I haven't tried to avoid the hooves but maybe I should? Last few I have dressed smelled terrible but they cooked up great. Some of the best we've had.

Is there a particular time of year that this is more of a concern. Like rabbit fever or something?

Will have to start packing some latex gloves in my bag. They are cheap and easy to pack so no reason not too!

Thanks for the read, safety first, plus if you ice the meat for several days you lose the gamy, hormone flavor on the boars (learned that from a country gentleman)

I've used latex and nitrile gloves. Nitrile is much more durable than latex, and doesn't cost a whole lot more. I get mine at Harbor Freight, but Walgreens and many grocery stores and pharmacies carry them.

I also keep a pair of lightweight leather gloves in my day pack to use when I'm dragging a hog. Besides the health factor they just make for less wear and tear on my hands. But then, I worked in a shipyard one summer while in college where gloves were mandatory. I joke with my friends nowadays that I won't even go outside and pick up a quarter off the sidewalk without putting on a pair of gloves grin

This raises some good points. The latex- IMHO I think they are sort of a marginal choice because if you have bone splinters, etc you can have shap bone easily puncture those latex gloves. I use the arm length gauntlets and then a heavy pair of rubberized gloves. This may sound sort of "wimpish" but I also have an old, worn out white shirt that I put on backwards. Ticks show up real well on the white shirt and I can pick them off while I'm gutting a deer or skinning a yote.
You can get mange from animals, rabbit fever, all sorts of stuff. Probably why hunters years ago did a lot of stews- cook the dickens out of that critter.

I was out of hunting for about 20 years.

I got back into because of my son and his friends.

I find out everybody is wearing gloves and watching out for poachers.

The first article mentions soaking the meat for several days in ice water.,, What is the purpose for this?
