    Just throwing this out there but in my 15+ years killing deer and other animals - I don't think I EVER ONCE wore gloves.

    If your man enough to kill an animal, you can strap on your big boy pants and field dress your animal like a man as well.

    Far as I am concerned - gloves would caue me to be MORE LIKELY to slice myself. Can't feel what I am doing. And you sure can't see what your doing up in the chest cavity of a deer. So you better be able to feel your way around well.

    OH, Also glad to here your pup is ok and I see this allot where I hunt, we got a large population of "Townies'" that hunt near me. 90% are flat out slob hunters and could care less about the woods or enven the game they are after. I could write a humor book on some of the stuff I have seen in the woods. One of the best is during archery season, I seen a guy still hunting with a Starbuck's fufu coffee in one had and his bow with a nocked arrow in the other! I do use gloves, but I always pack them out, even those of other hunters in my group, well I stuffed them in the pockets of their jackets before they put it back on.

    Would like to have posted a photo of the results of yesterday's hunt but I can't access my profile, photos section, or anything else. Just routes me back here. This site is so screwed up! Whoever maintains it has no self-respect. Probably his/her chief skills are brown-nosing and paycheck signing. Or he/she is actually getting paid by the competition. Gad, this is frustrating!

    Rocky, flagging tape serves that function very well ... and many others as well. I have never used gutting gloves. It's hairy enough working inside a deer with a sharp knife almost by feel, but when one can't feel anything ... well I wouldn't do it! Not even in minus twenty.

    I am surprised that no one chimed in. Used gutting gloves are the perfect rubber band. In many states you have to tie your tag to a slit in an ear. I tie mine in with by (surgical) gloves. Fixes 2 problems at the same time.

    Have some slob hunters here as well, always seem to carry some sort of garbage I find out with me at the end of the day. Found a Schrade knife in a sheath the other day, by the looks of the leather sheath it had been there a good long while, though the blade was still good and sharp . As for the gutting gloves I will not use them, I don't think the deer minds if I'm not wearing them, and I personally don't care for how my sense of touch is when I am wearing them. Glad Opal wasn't harmed.

    I adhere to the old Boy Scout adage of leave it better than you found it. Been teaching that to the grandson. The first couple of times I had him pick up some one else's trash he protested, then he saw how much better it was and does it on his own now. We always do a final check around to make sure we are not leaving anything and pack out what we pack in.

    OH, glad Opal is ok. I live in East Texas and around here we have so many ignorant SOB's who just chunk all their trash out on the side of the roads. Our local lakes have all kinds of junk in 'em. Lots of old worm containers, fishing line, bait packages, and beer cans. It's sad to think about these kinds of people being in the woods and on the water.

    You touched on a very sore point with me. I used to dive as a youngster. NY is home to many pristine lakes. Till you dive below the surface. Then it looks like a dump especially with regard to plastic containers. They never decompose.

    Glad everything turned out ok. You guys ever she'd hunt on public land and find hunters trash, scent bottles, wicks, and snack wrappers?

    OH, its a good thing you are enjoying the Montana wilderness where about 98% of the people have so much respect for nature that they don't even drop a cigarette butt. I suspect you would have the BIG one if you rode with me for a half hour through Atlanta where people throw McDonald's bags and beer cans out their car window as they drive along.

    The new rage is throwing old tires in the road because the garbage services will no longer take them. I have a little stash of half a dozen tires I've picked up in the last month. I really enjoyed Montana in contrast even though I did find a plastic water bottle in the timber.

    I'm glad Opal is not harmed. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Last week I was out on opening day for deer shotgun in Michigan. Got set up really early, sat until the end of the day watched everyone move in and out of their spots and walk all around. I was there just until I couldn't see anymore. As I left the public hunting ground I kicked my foot through something looked down and some lazy SOB drank a six pack while hunting and then just left the cans I was so pissed. His drunk butt was in the field and could have injured someone or killed them and not only that but just left his trash all over. Horrible ethics. Some people just don't think.

    Honk, just curious if Opal did swallow the glove would it pass through her body or would you take no chances and immediately take her to the vet for surgery?

    My younger policeman Brother was dispatched out to a house where a black lab puppy was screaming in pain. A large bone was stuck in the puppy’s rectum and my brother pulled it out.

    Labs are like Piranha they will eat anything with blood on it. LOL

    Sad thing is that there are so many inconsiderate lowlifes in this world, no respect for anyone or anything. I don't know how many times I go fishing and see miles of fishing line left on that bank along with everything else you can think of. I'm happy that everything turned out alright for you OH and your dog.
