Anyone allergic to deer hair/hides?
I did some investigating and discovered that this is caused by something called the Lone Star tick. Evidently the enzymes they transmit during the bite are very similar to the enzymes in all red meat, so the body reacts violently whenever the enzyme, regardless of the method it enters the body.
Now all he can eat is fish and poultry. And that sucks....
One thing I do know for certain is that if you're having an allergic reaction to deer hair, take all precaution around them. Wear gutting gloves and put latex gloves over the arm length plastic ones. You'll never know when that allergic reaction could become anaphylactic shock. And let me tell you, having your eyes swell shut is no fun, but if your throat swells shut, and it happens in the middle of the woods, you're screwed!
