When I was young, I remember suffering bad when I touched a roe. I'd sneeze and my eyes would be very itchy. I forgot about it until yesterday when skinning my first deer (roe buck). I suddenly started sneezing and it got quite bad, my eyes got a bit itchy as well. I don't get respiratory problems from it, it just feels very much like hayfever.
I was wondering if anyone else also suffered and if anyone has any solutions to it? Would it be worth wearing plastic gloves and safety glasses when skinning them to prevent getting the hair on me? I'm assuming it's something on the summer coat as I only get it on Roe in their summer coat. Muntjac, Fallow, etc cause no problems at all.
