Waterproof "decoy" gloves for duck hunting

Postby Brent » Tue Oct 11, 2005 6:56 pm

I had a pair of the Sealskins ones and liked them but

a) I lost them

b) they weren't warm enough on cold days (below 30 or so).

Anyone have a favorite?

Cabela's has some - Gortex - waterproof - and they have a couple different sets. I used the heavier set last year and hey were great.

I picked up a pair of Neoprene gloves at Scheels. They come up over the wrist and are completely waterproof. They also sell em at Wal-Mart.

same here.....they're really not meant for hunting, but for putting out, and picking up decoys.

I got a pair of the gauntlet length black rubber gloves we use at work for hazardous chemicals and wear them over my gloves when dealing with wet decoys. My hands stay dry and warm now.

i love neoprene gloves for pickup but mine usually only last one season if im lucky. if you can avoid gloves with rubber on the inside of the hands. mine always tear at the seam where the rubber and neoprene come togeather.

you dont really need anything fancy unless its bitter cold. I use normal dish washing gloves to through out decoys then I switch to my warm camo gloves for shooting.

LOBSTAH GLOVES.......they are rubber and insulated, worn by our fishermen here......neoprene wear out too fast and are never really waterproof, and are too expensive anyhow (same comments on gortex)......if just using them to haul in dekes, just spend a couple bucks on rubber gloves (the same ones used to wash your car in the winter!) at HomeDepot

I've got a pair of neoprenes that I wear to pick up decoys starting around mid-december. I usually end up taking them off halfway through because I unintentionally squeeze everything real hard when I've got them on because I can't feel what I'm grabbing. My forearms start burning after about nine deaks. Then I just take them off and suffer a little.

I would use sealskinz to set out dekes then use a pair of goretex gloves I found on the marsh while hunting. Gloves were Cabela's brand. They are sweet.
