Keeping your feet warm.
« on: November 19, 2018, 07:11:06 AM »
 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 don’t always have them with me. What do you do in order to keep your feet from freezing? If you don’t use feet warmers how many and what kind of socks do you wear? Thanks
because i love you.

Doesn't get below 0° here and I don't hunt from a tree stand so YMMV.

I have several hints that may help keep your feet warm. I mostly hunt in Georgia and it can get pretty dang cold but I have hunted in Ohio when it was single digit cold too.

Make sure your boots are not too tight. Tight boots will hurt circulation and let your feet get cold, you should be able to freely wiggle your toes with boots and socks on.

Spray or rub an antiperspirant on your feet to stop sweating. Wear a thin pair of wicking socks under a thick wool sock. Don't wear anything cotton.
Buy the full foot chemical heated insoles. I don't have much luck with the toe warmers but the full foot ones will keep my feet warm.
Quality boots that will keep your feet dry in snow and water.

Good Luck!

Lite full size socks under Merino wool socks in good insulated boots.
Circulation in the feet is very important for warm and mobility.
SHUT UP AND RELOAD!

Spot on. Thin polypropylene socks under thick wools.  Propane heater.
