I do what I do with the rest of my cold weather garments; Layer. Thin silk gloves, finger-less wool gloves (the kind with the flip up mitten piece) and leather choppers over everything else if it gets real nasty.

Ive been using those hand warming packets inside those muffs that you belt around your waist.With a light pair of fleece gloves. also the hand warmers help heat up the duck or goose calls late in the year.

I found wool liner gloves from an Army surplus store. There is always a guy selling them at the Ice Fishing show. I have terrible circulation and have had frostbite before so I always have to take care of my hands.

Mittens will always be warmer than a glove with equal insulation. The glove/mitten combos are a good thing, but leave room in them for a liner glove and a heater packet if you need it. I always use one just in case and put it in my coat pocket if its too warm.

I have purchased a couple years ago a pair of neoprene gloves for putting in and taking out decoys. The finger's are not bulky and easy to shoot and reload with. I think if I remember correctly they are 4mm thinsulate.

I'm with Elwood. I have always had problems keeping my hands warm. Two years ago I switched to the muff with a heat pad in the middle. Awesome! I can wear light gloves on the coldest days and still operate my duck calls or the release for my bow. I think some of the high end waders actually have this muff built into them now.

I use neoprene ones when rowing or handling decoys, switch to wool when shooting. I use the wool ones that have some type of "gripping" dots on the palms. Use a muff with handwarmers for deer hunting.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
