    Default Recommend me hunting gloves

    Looking for advice on cold weather gloves. Want them to be warm, water resistant and trigger guard friendly. Thanks

    Right hand gloves come off when shooting for me. I have tried making a slit in trigger finger glove and slipping my finger out when using the trigger but I still don't like it. I've royally jammed my bolt gun before shooting with "smokers" gloves. Missed a coyote because of it, Mitten part caught the bolt when I rammed er shut. I'll freeze instead now lol

    I use something similar to this mitten. I throw in a hand warmer pad in the top portion of each and am toasty for 5 hours.

    Sorry can not help with recommendation,but can tell what did not work for me.

    Warm,Gore tex gloves.They made my hand sweat like crazy,taking them off while my hands were wet was a major pain,and my fingers got cold(wet and cold do not mix well)

    I am using a silk liner glove and an El cheapo Wal Mart fleece mid weight glove(the thing is 15 years old at least ,and still going strong...)in real cold.Works great for me.
    When shooting-i almost always pull off the fleece,and shoot without glove or even without silk glove on .I never felt the cold while shooting the gun...........

    Hunted moose 2 years ago in November, -25 C with windchill with this combo,no issues for my hands.

    You could consider waterproof muff and "anything on your hands"- if raining,you stick your hands in-they are roomy (so may not make your hands sweat to much).I have a pair ,not water proof,but so far never needed it either.
    But we are not the same.........

    That is not something that can be answered generally as everyones requirements differ.
    Myself , all I wear all winter long is either a pair of unlined deerskin gloves, or a pair of Mechanics Fast Fit unlined gloves, I also find that with either of those gloves, I have good dexterity and very good trigger control while/when I am hunting.
    The best gloves that I have ever had till they were stolen on me, were a pair of U.S. Air Force pilots gloves, they were absolutely great [for me].

    Ya, I don't think there are any gloves that can do what you ask..... at least none that I know of that work.... I usually just use a cheap brown glove, those ones you find at the dollar store or hardware store (package of 10 for like $8 or something like that) ..... fingers do get cold on those coyote hunts but on those really cold days, I drop those hand warmers in the gloves, that seems to help a lot....

    Never found an all around glove that worked in the very cold. I have opted of a thin cloth glove inside a pair of big leather mitts while sitting. Hands stay warm in mitts better than gloves and on long sits, 4-5 hrs, I don't experience any discomfort. When the time come to take action I just slip out my hand out and use the gun with just the thin cloth (or no glove).

    I keep a standard winter glove for the drive in etc in my pack.

    I agree with the others on there being no perfect hunting gloves. If there is, they're the best kept gear secret going...haha.

    I use the Canadian Tire 12 dollar 3-pack of thin gloves with the little bumps on them for walking and warm days. On cold days when sitting I use a pair of fleece lined deerskin mitts. On really cold days I keep the glove on under the mitt. They're easy and quiet to slip off when it's time to shoot.

    If you do find something that works well, please let us know!

    (x2) I wear Under Armor Sidelines gloves inside a pair of mitts.
    Marks also sell similar Dakota gloves for half the price of the UA.

    I have nothing but issues with my hands in the cold. Funny how breaking the bones in your hand a couple times makes them so sensitive. All that said, I hate wearing gloves while hunting.

    I do have a pair of Manzella gloves that are warm to the point of sweating but still quite thin, they work.

    More often I find myself buying bulk packs of the grey or white cotton gloves. They come off quick, don't mark up your gun and are cheap enough to use in place of forgotten butt wipe. If it gets too cold you can stretch on 2 pair and I find that's good enough down to -10. Those gloves also work great for skinning, adds a little bit of grip on the hide and they will protect against a knife like you wouldn't believe.

    If I'm in my blind my hands are usually warmed by a cup of tea. I do have interest in finding one of those muff things that hang by my belly I can just slide my hands into.
