Re: Scent and K9s....
Great picks all the way around!!
I wear gloves while setting traps for two reasons:
1. It saves my hands
2. It keeps me from touching traps after I get lure/bait/urine on my hands
I’ve set plenty of traps with no gloves and have had little or no problems. I used to crew, spit on the ground, with no issues there either. I’ve taken kids, adults that were worse than kids along as well. I do not see how you can go wrong being careful about it, but I do not see it as a deal breaker in the average situation.
I wear pink boots just like that and I never shoot bucks like that, mine must be broken.
