I prefer to not use gloves but it beats losing all feeling in your hands. Then you are really going to shoot poorly! I like thin ones. I have got a fleece pair that is very warm and has rubberized grips on the palm. They are really nice for shooting the bow. Before those I was just using those thin cotton ones. They did not help all that much.
I wear a glove on my hand that holds the bow, but for my trigger finger hand, i tend to just keep it in my pocket to keep it warm. When it gets really cold I stick one or two hand warmers in the pocket. It works to keep it warm, but allows me to keep it ungloved. Not only do I like it for the trigger finger, but it helps me to feel my anchor point too.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
