I do, strictly because I am

I do, strictly because I am worried about the deer seeing the movement when I move my hands.

I have a very thin pair that I got from Cabelas a few years back.  Since I can be hunting in 90 degree weather here in CA, it's nice to have something lightweight.

I got mine at Cabelas a few

I got mine at Cabelas a few years ago... pretty much camo spandex with leather palm stitched on... so very light, very thin. 

The drive to Lacey is only a little over an hour for me so I was able to try them on before I bought them... great gloves.

I may need to get another pair after this season as they are starting to show some wear...

Cold weather Long dive

Will those gloves work for a hunt in the snow?  Sitting in a tree stand for hours.  The light gloves work for some cool weather but you need some good hand warmers to shoot with during those cold snowy mornings.

The closest Cablas to me is the one in Lacey, WA.  I have to drive over 5 min to get there.  It’s exactly 3 miles from door to door.

lucky you, I have to drive almost 3 hours to get there, or have my father-inlaw pick stuff up for me. I wish they would build one down here.

The thin ones I have are not

The thin ones I have are not suitable for snow. I can start the season this weekend, it may be 95.  By the end of the season, I could be in 2 feet of snow.  It's not fun.....

I shoot with some thin

I shoot with some thin gloves.  They are kinda umcomfortable but worth it so your hands dont get cold in cool weather.

I havent yet gotten a thin pair of gloves yet but i have been practicing with my thick fleece gloves just to get used to them. they are kinda growing on me now, i think I'll need them for my NOV and DEC hunt as its usally pretty darn cold and snowy in our mountains by then, I'll hold out and get a thin pair in the spring to use in my early season hunts. good luck to everyone. thanks for your input. much apperciated.

Thin cotton

I probably have six or seven different pairs of gloves in a bag that I keep in my hunting box.  The gloves range from the heavy mittens that the finger cover slides off to expose the finger tips to heavy wool gloves.  I have the tight spandex-type gloves and the tight nylon gloves with the leather palms and trigger finger.  All of these gloves have found their way in the glove bag and that's were they usually stay.  I have decided that the best glove for me to use are the cheap thin cotton gloves that you can get for a couple of bucks at Cabelas or BPS.  They keep my hands concealed and they provide enough protection from the elements (for me).  Although most of my hunting is in not-so-extreme conditions, it does get down in the low twenties and sometimes in the teens.  While sitting a stand in the cold, I always just keep one of those hand warmers in each front pocket and either slip my hands in my pockets when the action is slow, or I just hold the warmers in my hands when I am sitting.  I always wear the same style gloves no matter what the weather is!  I have looked into those fleece-lines hand muffs that you can just slip your hands in while you are sitting but just haven't justified the need yet.

Good luck in finding a pair that keeps you comfortable and shooting straight!
