Finding at the end of the Pheasant Season that here in the MIdwest, when it's 10degrees outside and a 15mph Plains Wind is sweeping across the Prairie, it can get a bit hard to feel either of the triggers...Yes, I've doubled before wearing thick gloves on flushed birds...

Has anyone found some good quality thin battery powered gloves that work well?


Have tried the charcoal heater packs, they are nice, but something with a bit more oomph is what I'm after.

And no, it's not an excuse to just go buy a Single Trigger Gun! Hahahah

I know what works for me, but they aren't battery powered.

I use a battery powered hand warmer in my coat pocket as necessary.
Recharges via usb in the truck. RGS gave them out to sponsors.

It really depends on your circulation.

Thin fleece, wool, or silk work pretty well for me.

I have a pair called “Hot shots” I found at Menards in their hunting dept that seem to be adequate. Nice orange, so harder to lose.

I get cold fingers and toes very easily. I believe it is a by product of growing up in Minnesota and being frostbit on numerous occasions. In any event, hand and foot warmth is important to me and this is what I use for bird hunting.

These are the best shooting gloves I've ever used
Outdoor Research Gloves

They are wind and waterproof. Do not buy them to be tight, but they will stretch very nicely to fit your fingers without bunching up and without floppy finger tips.

If these are not enough, then slide your gloved, left hand into one of these Burton Workhorse Leather Chopper Mitten

while keeping your gloved right hand in your jacket pocket for the first 30 minutes of hunting. After that, you should be fine with just the gloves and no mitt.


If that doesn't do it, then a pair of these. Zippo hand warmers

Slide one inside each wrist cuff of a long glove, or more likely, inside the wrist elastic of your hunting parka. Keep them against your wrist where the blood is shallow and easily warmed as it passes by. This will work, even when sitting on a deer stand.

If none of that works - maybe it's a good day to stay home. smile

I should add, proven effective with double triggers on Scott, Lang, Evans, Greener, Cashmore, Merkel, and numberous flint and percussion muzzleloaders.
