    Default Best glove for waterfowl hunting

    Having a hard time narrowing down a quality glove thatís of decent quality, waterproof and still allows dexterity to shoot while wearing the glove. Most cold weather waterproof gloves are big and bulky. And others that are made for shooting are not waterproof. What say ye?
    When in doubt, shoot him again!

    Work like it's all up to me, but pray, like it's all up to him!

    Wear a thick waterproof glove while driving the boat, setting up, sitting around before light, etc. Then take it off and tuck your hand in your jacket pocket with a hand warmer. Zippo makes a good rechargeable one.

    The only glove I can shoot in is a Footjoy wintersof golf glove. But I’m using it where there’s no water.

    This but get yourself a boom that you can attach around your waist and toss a couple hand warmers in there.

    I've been using Bob Allen leather shooting gloves since the 1980's. I always have an insulated and un-insulated pair. I can shoot with the unisulated one on my right hand and the insulated ones are thin enough that I can work the controls on the boat and GPS. I still just keep my right hand in my pocket when I duck hunt because a glove changes the sound of the call.

    Unless it's close to or below freezing, I can get by using the insulated pair even when running the boat. Once it gets colder, I'll get switch to something else, for my left hand when running the tiller handle. They are not waterproof but they dry quick. I don't use them for picking up decoys, I usually keep a pair of the cloth gloves dipped in rubber/vinyl from lowes for that - they're usually only a couple of dollars per pair so I can have a pair in every decoy bag.

    This is how long I've been wearing them...I think I took this with a 110 camera. I have to replace the left hand glove about every 10 years because I always have one on my left hand when I'm hunting or shooting - deer, duck, dove, clays, it don't matter. I have a bunch of right hand gloves that I haven't worn out.

    Wool gloves, throw a pair of commercial fishing gloves on top when messing with decoys.

    Fingerless wool Filson gloves for me. Unfortunately my favorite pair isn't sold any more and my current pair is about to fall apart.

    If it's really cold, I'll put on the big rubber insulated crabber gloves for driving the boat and putting out decoys. When I'm actually hunting I don't wear gloves at all.

    Heavy glove for driving the boat.

    Black nitrile for hunting unless it's really cold then fingerless wool over them.

    These for driving the boat/SxS, etc. https://www.filson.com/original-line...-fco-000000289

    These for shooting.... https://www.firstlite.com/products/M...RoC_8QQAvD_BwE


    Jacob, try those Talus gloves if Filson doesn't make your favorites anymore. You'll be pleased....
