Should Hunters Wear Gloves to Field Dress Deer?

Most hunters would not think twice before field dressing a deer, but for one man it went horribly wrong! David Micheal Letterman II had a small cut on his hand. He developed a strep infection that cost him a $4000 surgery. Lots of pain and time away from hunting and work just made the situation worse. He now advises everyone to where gloves when field dressing deer.

Does this make you think twice before field dressing your deer with out gloves? I think most of us will just assume it will never happen when we are in that situation. But isn’t that how most bad things happen?
