Cabelas brand waterfowl gloves. 150 gram thinsulate.They are awesome. I think they are around $50, but they go on sale for $29.99 often. I usually get a couple pairs a year...

I don't think there is one glove that is warm, dry, and flexible enough to shoot with. I've tried em all. I wear gloves called "Hotshots" for setting dekes and shooting, and then switch to some neoprene gauntlets for picking up dekes. I bought the Hotshots at K-Mart one time, cause they were only $7.99, and Max - 4. I liked em so well I went back to buy em all, but of course they only had 1 pair left. Using the same 2 pairs for 3 years now, and they are as warm and flexible as can be. Hunting in 5 degree weather 2 weeks ago, and they kept me warm all day.

gloves suck for hunting, more specifically they suck for calling. I don't wear them while actually hunting, usually have them and my hands in my pockets. Picking up decoys is a different story.

I use an avery hand muff when I'm shooting. Just put two hand warmer in it and your hands will never get cold. But putting out decoys or picking them up I used the Cabelas gloves talked about above.

Another vote here for the Cabela's gloves.
Have had a pair for 4 seasons now and going strong. I'm not hunting but an average of 15-20 hunts a year, but they have been in mud, ice, saltwater, etc....
I don't think you can find a glove that will be warm and allow you to feed shells. If they do... let me know!

I'm new to waterfowl, i've only been jump shooting ponds as I don't have any decoys yet. But for shooting gloves and being able to load your gun and use a call (I do a bit of coyote calling also) I put a pair of latex gloves on under a pair of cotton roping gloves. Guarantee you will be surprised how warm it is!!

Cabela's gloves = warm hands

Columbia omni heat are the warmest gloves I've ever had but no shooting finger. I use cabelas dry plus shooting finger gloves and pair them with under armour cold gear liners.
