I have only recently taken up hunting. A lifelong interest but one that hasn't been realized until my father-in-law has taken me under his wings. I work in EMS and one of our core rules is isolating ourselves from bodily fluids. I asked my father-in-law about whether he was worried about catching some disease from the fluids of the animals he guts and skins and his reply was, "I've been doin' this since I was a boy; I ain't dead yet and I have no idea." For instance, I'm very interested in coon hunting and I know that rabies is primarily saliva borne. I am not sure of any transmittable diseases game animals might carry. Is it safe to go in "bareback" or should I glove up? Apologies if this is a dumb question. Just curious. Thanks.
