New Duck Hunter Looking for Some Advice on Gloves

Postby AronBlad23 » Sat Aug 10, 2013 7:09 am

I'm finally getting into a duck blind this year after getting back into hunting. Mainly will be doing my hunting out of a blind on the south eastern end of LI with some hunts on the CT shore. Very confused about gloves...was wondering if any of you guys have a recomendation?

I use jersey gloves take 3-4 pairs keep in ziplock so they stay dry.

Wool army gloves while your sitting in the blind. Carry a set of oven cleaning gloves or something similar to put over them when it's time to pick up decoys. Works great and is very economical. The jersey gloves that 18javelin mentioned work good as well.

gloves are for sissys

besides if you don't have gloves you have an automatic excuse for sticking your hands in your pants!!!

seriously, I have a pair of lobster mans gloves for picking up decoys and driving the boat when its brutal out...otherwise, no gloves or sometimes the fingerless wool gloves...if need be bring three pairs in case they get taken off for an extended period.... the cold wet ones are not fun putting back on...but if you keep the wool ones on even when wet ...they provide some warmth

X2 on the longliner gloves....I wear them from the ramp to settling down in the boat...then I go with no gloves and use a muffler until it's time to shoot....I have never found a glove that I like to actually pull the trigger with

Wool and carry a few extra pair. They always get wet and in my experience the expensive name brand ones don't really make a difference.

Neoprene fishing gloves for paddling out and setting decoys. While in the blind I have flip over mittens for bitter days, otherwise no gloves
