I talked to a guy at work recently who says he has gotten serious stomach problems every time he eats venison (whether he knew what it was or not).

I thought this was some bogus excuse to "avoid eating bambi" or something, but after doing some research it actually sounds legit. Folks are saying you can develop allergies to certain types of proteins.

A few folks on another outdoors website were discussing this, and they talked about how they break out in hives if their skin touches deer blood while field dressing. Another guy mentioned the same thing happening with squirrels.

So there you have it, folks - just one more thing to be thankful that you don't have to deal with!

I get a mild itchy rash where deer blood stays on me for a little while. If I were allergic to eating it though, I think I should have died by now.

I tend to be a little more regular after eating venison.

I wouldn't call it an allergy but it makes my gout flare up if I eat too much jerky.

Friend of mine that wanted "all the deer I would give him" last year showed up Thanksgiving morning to pick up the 5 we had in the back yard.

He told me later that while cutting one of them up his eyes swelled shut and he started sneezing like crazy.

Strange for sure.

I really can't see how one would be allergic to deer blood, but I know one of my friends that is allergic to deer hair.
I just thought he was just slow at gutting deer but I watched him on day, with gloves and all.
I had to ask him what's with the gloves and he explained that he was allergic to the hair. Of course I had to make a few jokes about that. Ha.
