    NO! NO! NO! NO!!!!! If you touch the testicles and the scent glands, you can get a scent on your hands and your knife and if you touch the meat you run the risk of contaminating the meat and then it can taste bad.
    If you leave them alone, they won't do anything. If you have someone to process your deer, they should know how to deal with it. If you want to process your deer yourself, there are a lot of books and DVDs out there that tell you how. A good example of a book is "Butchering Deer" by John Weiss in the Outdoorsman's Edge Guides published by Creative Outdoors in Upper Saddle River NJ. (you should be able to get it on line or at your local Borders or Hastings Book stores.
    Years ago I knew people who swore you had to cut them off. They always had bad tasting deer meat, because they were contaminating it. They also were the guys that read the books from back in the 40's that said you had to cut the deer's throat to bleed it. The couldn't understand why the taxidermist hated to see them coming. But they had completely ruined the cape.
