Yesterday evening I shot two more Roe does at the request of a local farmer. When I went to gralloch them, I realised I'd run out of latex gloves, which I usually use for 'best practice' reasons and to avoid getting plastered in blood. No matter, I got on with the job, then cleaned myself up with some wipes. However, most of you will know that this isn't exactly efficient and you always end up with a fair amount of blood left on your hands and wrists (or at least I do ).
By the time I'd got home, transferred the deer from truck to larder, tidied up etc, I would think an hour or so had passed before I got round to scrubbing my hands with soap and water. This morning, my hands and wrists are itching like hell and I have a vague recollection it's possible to have an allergic reaction to blood? I'm pretty sure it's not the wipes, as I was using wussy non-allergenic baby wipes rather than the heavy duty industrial kind.
Has anyone else experienced or heard of this?
