    Don't hunt skunks. Just a thought.

    It’s never happened, to me. Maybe I’m doing something wrong or something right?

    Your Brain is neurologically linking an unfamiliar or new smell with its olfactory nervous system. Sniff a candle for an hour and your #2 will smell like Lavender. I actually just made that all up and have no idea why

    I know what it feels like (just before you get the horn). From a ELK...
    Elk farm, 2 yr old males. One decided I was a threat, or competition. He came right toward me. Owner dumping feed, trying to distract it. He kept coming. I had A .380 auto. I wondered if I could kill this + $7000 animal with 7 .380 bullets. They do have sensitive noses, I made it out of the gate without shooting. A bit larger animal.

    Elk don’t have horns, they have antlers.

    Never had a problem with the smell. I keep multiple pairs of disposable gloves on hand when I skin and gut.

    No. Never noticed that.

    I’ve always though deer guts smelled strange, but it’s an oddly sweet almost metallic smell.

    That could have ended up very bad for you indeed. Glad you were able to get away in time.

    Open carry could have stopped this deer wrestling.

    I recall the smell gutting a rabbit being strong. The smell from cleaning a deer never bothered me much. I remove the tarsal glands and testes first, then try to be super careful not to pierce anything inside of the abdominal cavity like the bladder, gall bladder, stomach, and intestines.
