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?


Shhhhhhhh better to be quiet than remove all doubt..

Same here. I haven't gutted a deer in over 10 years. Take out the back straps, then quarters, and neck meat. The ribs don't hold much meat and what's there is usually fat and grissel. Takes me 30 minutes to skin and quarter the deer, the rest goes back into the food chain for the yotes rifle

Yup. X3. Call me lazy, but it's quick and a lot cleaner.

I use the vinyl gloves from Walmart. Work great and actually help keep your hands warmer when skinning on a cold day. I also think they help you grip parts of the deer better, which is safer IMHO.

cheers huntsolo here, way back down in the hollows... When ya get a hog down, ya figure out short cuts, some times the elaments do connect, & a spark of sannaty kicks in... Hog on it side, take backstrap & quarters, roll over repete... No gutting through meat in trash bags, then in backpack... Been doing this since the 90's when opened up a WMA down the road... GW can tell differance between a deer & hogs feet... Just leave little hide around holf, for those that rofl slept threw English class... Tell'em the caveman taught ya... rofl i got cheap posts... cheers cool thread... flag

I use the latex gloves, and put on my rain coat! I'll take off the gloves when I'm done, and wash off the rain coat. I also do not gut the deer. I'll hang the deer up by its rear legs, and get just enough of the guts moved to get the tenderloins.
