You guys must not hunt in cold weather. Nothing worse than tight leather on a cold day. It restricts blood flow while offering almost no insulation to retard conductive heat loss to cold gun parts.

I don't hunt when it's below the mid-teens. That's when I drift for ducks on the creek. Don't use gloves because my hands are constantly getting wet. The teens probably isn't considered cold by northern standards.

I have found winter baseball gloves to be great. But I don’t hunt in real cold weather. Been there done that—60 years ago.

I hunt in cold weather. Ptarmigan north of Fairbanks AK. Dec-Feb count? Chuks at 7k+ in Dec-Feb count? I hunted Sharptails today in a 17 mph north wind and a temp of 11°. I use cheap Rawlins baseball gloves. Anything thicker is too difficult to work a double triggered gun and with a single trigger o/u...you sometimes don’t let the trigger reset. I don’t have circulation problems though like some of you might have. That helps.
The last time I used thick gloves, I had a OR mitten on one hand and a Black Diamond “pilot” glove on my trigger hand. That was Kansas a couple years ago and it was absolutely stupid outside. Shouldn’t have even gone out that day. Plenty of years hunting Nebraska in Dec-Jan with nothing more than a ratty pair of nomex pilot gloves or baseball gloves.

Duck hunting....I wear a thin pair of glacier neoprene gloves. Plenty warm. My decoy gloves are much bulkier and thicker though.

I believe those of us who work outdoors and work with our hands, have a distinct advantage when it comes to keeping our fingers and toes warm in the late season.

I know my friends that are on heart meds and what not, all say that they are cold in their extremities and it doesn’t seem to matter what they do, other than make sure they have an ample supply of heat packets available.

With the Orvis wool and leather shooting gloves, once the fingers are broken in, I have no trouble at all operating double triggers. They really are a nice glove.

But again I probably have Fisherman’s hands, so perhaps my hands automatically warm them selves up a little more than some when I am outdoors. Like I am today, sharp tail hunting in the snow at 32°. So it’s cold and wet. But I’m not. And my hands are hot.

These are the gloves I use and they beat anything with leather, hands down (bad, but intentional pun). Extremely double-trigger friendly.

Clapper, my hands get hot in 32 degree weather after a couple miles. But if I don't have good gloves the first couple miles can be miserable if it's colder than that and windy. Then they never seem to catch up.

The Midwest home improvement store, Menards, has sold an inexpensive goat skin glove I’ve been using for years. The glove comes in sizes and wears well. They sell for about $9 a pair and I usually buy two pairs at a time. I get about three years of weekly shooting out a pair.

When it is really cold I will wear a heavier glove on my left hand and carry the gun in that hand between points. the right one will have a lighter glove that has some insulation and is windproof. Nothing tight to slow circulation. Keeping your wrist warm and out of the wind is more important than you may think. 24 years as a mail carrier on walking routes at straight temps down to -20 will teach you some tricks. When you get in the truck to move, if it's warm enough to take off your gloves, sit on them to keep them warm.

Speaking of keeping the wrist warm, a glove with a long cuff that will allow a small zippo hand warmer works really well when it gets gnarly out there.
