I use rubber gloves, typically the dish washing kind, whenever I field dress any mammal at any time of the year. The gloves I use will occasionally tear though, so I looked around and found these...kinda pricey but probably reusable.

Yep. Big, thick yellow gloves from the grocery store -- the dishwashing type. Cheap insurance I think.

Gloves are a very good idea when field dressing, skinning, and/or butchering any animal. People have gotten very sick and some have even died from diseases contracted from handling dead animals. Chances are you will never have a problem but tell that to the few that have gotten very sick or the families of those who have died from contracted diseases.

Not using gloves is like not wearing a harness in a treestand. You might get away with it for a long time, some can get away with it for their whole life, but really what's the point of chancing it? One infected animal is all it takes to put you in the hospital. Gloves are cheap, don't take up much space, are light, and could save your life and your health. Really, what's the downside?

I use nitrile rubber gloves always, no matter what kind of animal I'm cleaning. A box of 100 pairs costs around $20.

I nearly died four times from an infection in my face, and it took multiple surgeries that took all my teeth as well as some muscle, and left me with permanent neurological damage to kill it. Lost a kidney from the drugs.

Mine was never sourced-they had never seen anything like it before. Wear the gloves. It's better safe than sorry.

You should really wear gloves for all game not just pigs as they all carry nasties. I have never worn gloves and never will, I also dont know anybody that wears them. Its a matter of being aware thats all.

I wear gloves with all game I handle. Why wouldn't you?

It's cheap insurance for more than just disease related issues. Your hands are clean and dry when you are finished, and it is far easier to maintain a solid grip on your knife and anything else that needs hanging onto.

All benefits that minimize failure in the field.
