    How do you keep your feet warm during winter hunting

    During the winter months it can get pretty cold sitting in the deer stand. I usually wear one pair of thick socks to keep my feet warm. But sometimes they still get cold and makes me want to stand up and move around to get them warm. I have a nice pair of Rocky 1000 gram boots but sometimes they still get cold. I have tried a pair of anklets under my thicker socks and it works all right. Last year I used the feet warmers and they worked pretty well but I donít always have them with me. What do you do in order to keep your feet from freezing? If you donít use feet warmers how many and what kind of socks do you wear? Thanks

    The older I get the worse time I have with keeping my feet warm. I grabbed a pair of these to throw in my pack and try this year. I have not used them but I have a friend that loves them so I grabbed a pair to try:

    Rubbers. Depending on ambient conditions overshoes, something like the LL Bean Maine Hunting Shoe, Sorel Caribou boots.

    When it gets really cold, i continually move my toes- it extends the time until my feet go cold. 2 layers of sox and insulated hunting boots.

    Constantly scrunch your toes. One base layer one winter layer. Great boots. But I find nothing is fool proof. My feet get cold and it sucks. Hands too. I used an old army wool blanket draped over the quad ( quad rides in freezing are FUN) to protect my feet and legs and hands. Actually worked OK. It's kinda like having those cover boots mentioned earlier in thread.

    But if your out there long enough feet and hands are a bitch.

    I hunt a lot in cold conditions, and am on a Search and Rescue team which puts us in very cold winter conditions, and i've found these boots to work really well at keeping my feet toasty. They are 2,000 gram Thinsulate and fully waterproof, and have really agressive tread for good winter traction. The only downside is that they are fairly large boots. I usually only wear them on really cold days or in deep snow, but they have outperformed all my other boots in cold weather.

    Wool socks are seriously better than any other I've worn no matter how think. Smartwool are pricey but worth every penny. I have others that have an equivalent wool content but aren't as soft.

    Specifically these:

    I wear HotHands insole foot warmers. Buy the full size ones, not the toe warmers. They have an adhesive backing that adheres to the bottom of your socks. They work well for 4+ hours. After you remove your boots, peel the warmers off and throw them in the trash.

    Yeah, the difference is night and day with wool socks.
