Default Best way to keep your hands warm

Any gloves or techniques that hunters use to keep your hands warm all day? I think this year I'm just going to go with the muff and a bunch of hand warmers. Any other suggestions.

Joe, I prefer using the glomits with pouches for hand warmers, IMO your fingers stay much warmer than with gloves and it is easy to get your fingers out to shoot.

Default Muff with a hand warmer.

I agree, I hate takein a shot with gloves on. The only time i will wear gloves in the woods is walking to and from my stand. I use a heavey warm muff and if its real cold i will throw a coulple hand warmers in there and its like a toasty oven. Never had cold hands yet.

I agree with the muffs I have some fingers missing on my hand and gloves get in the way , but with a muff I put a handwarmer in it I can sit all day. I like the ones that has the belt on them .

The best way I have found is those cheap hand warmers that you open & shake up! I buy them by the case and bring 4 along with me when it starts to get cold.

I use a muff with 4 hand warmers. I carry gloves for when I'm traveling. Can't hold your rifle at the ready with both hands shoved in the muff.

When it's gonna be pretty cold I use one of those pouches you belt around your waist that you stick both hands into, wear a thin pair of gloves (ones i can shoot no problem with) and put some handwarmers inside it. That keeps em good and warm. The other thing I have is two separate pouches called wooly boggers that you tie to a belt loop on each side..these things are almost too warm, a little bulky so i rarely bring em, but if it isn't going over 20, I do. Of course, the best way to get your hands warm is to bag one and get to field dressing promptly. Nothing like a nice warm body cavity, full of blood and guts to get the hands warm

Wooly Boggers? Never heard of them but sounds right up my alley for a cold day on the stand. My hands and feet are always the first to go. I've conquered the problem with the muff and handwarmers. Now it's just the pesky feet.

A muff and handwarmers are the ticket.

My Dad got us them WB's way long, long time ago, back when we were teenagers. Don't know if you can still get them? About the feet, I've always done well most seasons with good rubber boots in 800-1200 thinsulate (you can get them up to 2000) with a good moisture wicking sock for base layer and a good thick wool sock 2nd. I like rubber, as i've had too many deer cut my tracks in and spook to neglect going scent free. However the spray stuff works as long as you spray your boots liberally with it, and i do whether i wear rubber or not. For those real cold seasons, i've told u before - Rocky Snowstalker Extreme 1200's. Awesome, but pricey at $230. Though, cabelas knockoff of them, their Predator Extreme 1200's are just as warm and a lot more reasonable at $130. I'd try them for sure if cold feet is a problem for ya. Here's a pic:

Best bang for your buck is a Zippo hand warmer. You fill it with lighter fluid and you ignite the wick. It goes in a pouch which you put in your pocket. On e fill up last up to 24hours! They are warm as hell, and if you take it out of the pouch it is hot to the touch. All i can say is it is awesome, and it is also odorless! While that baby is in your pocket, it warms your whole body, and then you periodically take it out and hold it in your hands. You can get them on ebay for 18-20bucks!
