They are by far the best gloves I've used for field dressing and are easy to clean even 24 hours later. I like the almost to-the-armpit coverage. Pigs can be very nasty!

    Years ago I never used gloves but an experience field dressing a gut shot pig cured me of that! It was on a high hill with no close water or any other way to clean my hands other than wiping them on dead leaves or my clothes. Now I take wet wipes and plenty of tissue as well as gloves!
    I'm calling my congressman and demanding that scientists be made illegal.

The problem is when contents of intestine get on the meat. Then the only defense is cooking to a high temp.

    Raw ground beef would be "steak tartare." In the process of grinding, the outer surface of the meat is blended with the interior portion and may not be decontaminated by the frying process. That risk is not present when the piece of meat is intact when fried.

    eww, that's where I draw the line bubba. Venison is safe to eat medium rare.

    There is so little fat in venison that when it is cooked well done, it is like shoe leather. I believe the presence of pathogens in venison is less likely than e.coli, and there is some risk of e. coli in eating ANY ground meat cooked rare. But it is so slight as to be negligible. I'll take my chances on rare venison steaks.

    The death threat from parasites is rather low but you will hate the treatment.
    The evolving threat are the viruses that are coming out of jungles where the monkeys are carriers. You have heard of them in the news. Many have demonstrated the ability to jump from animal to human and the humans have no resistance to them at all so they can easily be fatal. Remember Ebola ?? CDC has outposts in these remote jungles to get a heads up on a virus that seems to pose a threat. They try to contain the area and set up contamination hospitals for the infected.
    There are literally thousands of viruses that have the potential to balloon at any given time.
    Viruses are likely to be the cause of the next pandemic. Bacteria are second on the list of deadly. A relative was recently hospitalized for a MERSA infection that started on the inside of her elbow as a little red dot the size of a pencil tip, there was no, I repeat NO break in the skin. She wound up in the Hospital for three days with a IV of a cocktail of the 'strongest' antibiotics known to man. These are the drugs that if they don't kill the bacteria, they will kill the patient. Deadly poison in your body. She survived and they have no idea where the bacteria came from.
    Honk, you should study up on these as things have changed a lot since your 1900 experiences.
    The Somali's are gonna blow up Honk before any goose disease gets him! LMBO!

    The two Texas hunters probably wore gloves when they gutted that contaminated deer and they still died. If/when bird flu arrives from Asia via Alaska, we will know about it well in advance of any personal risks of infection from hunting. I'll probably stop hunting at that point. As far as some deadly virus mutation developing unannounced and infecting me before anyone knows it exists, that probability is even more remote than getting hit by a piece of reentry satellite debris. I'm not like the guy they stopped at the border here last year who had seven handguns concealed in various locations in his 23' motor home, including the toilet. When asked why so many his response was "You never know when an intruder will try to take you out. I might be taking a dump." He tried to get across without declaring them. They became some rather expensive scrap metal. I'm not afraid of improbabilities. Driving my car to the grocery store is more dangerous. In fact, there's a relatively high probability it will kill me. But I don't plan to give it up.

    I wear shoulder length gloves with little ones on over the hands. I feel silly, but I can gut any critter and come away with completely clean hands and arms. Pretty handy for $1.50 especially when I then have to drag that deer quite a ways, probably stopping to eat, drink, text, etc. on the way. I don't think I'd be scared to gut without them, though..

I explained that I was half way through a nice dinner and didn't wish to ruin my wife's evening but would head out ASAP when finished. I made it out back by around 9:30 to find that this young lady had gutted said bull with surgical precision and had blood no further north than her wrists. I was very impressed.
    If you cut the critter's throat, you don't have to reach in very far to pull out the windpipe.
