Re: good deer knife
and I do carry gloves with me lately, I don't worry about disease so much but it makes cleanup afterwards much easier. plus if I smoke a grouse or something else while out big game hunting, I can use the gloves if there's no water nearby to wash up with.
Don't really want to play with grouse guts and then shove a big chew in or munch snacks afterwards.
and they also are a good and very small way to keep your digits warm in an emergency! put them under your regular gloves and your hands will be much warmer. (and turn into a prune, but warm)
