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'm hungry and tired. Don't poke my belly.
