Nope, I use hot hands2, I got a case for Christmas about 5 years ago and I have enough left for many years. Open them shake them up and stick them in my coat pocket before I leave home and by the time I arrive at my hunting spot they are nice and toasty. I take a couple of extra because you never know if you got a dud and you can carry a lot of them without taking up much room in the day pack or pocket. I hate gloves so my hands are in my pockets, warm until I need them. A long time ago I tried electric hunting socks, they were crap, I doubt I would ever use clothing that needs batteries to work again.

I agree with every word of this. Hot Hands and pockets. Go forth and slay the mighty whitetail.

That may be fine for those who play with their phones on stand, I don't I am on stand to hunt and my phone is turned off unless I need help.

I was just thinking if someone uses a lot of them in the long run they would be cheaper. Heck I would use mine in the winter when I have recess duty here at school. I go out everyday unless it is below 32.

In Vermont we have no choice. Last weekend we were blessed with a Sunday with morning temperatures from 30 to 40. 25-33 in the mountain where I hunt. Saturday was about 22 for the whole morning. This week got really warm (50's) but haven't had a chance to go out; next week we are expecting temperatures below freezing and a snowstorm.

Nothing like a good pair of gloves for the cold days. For days with temps around the 40's, no gloves necessary. I am a total noob at deer hunting, but from winter sports experience, a good pair of gloves will keep your hands warm no matter what.

I know shooting with big gloves can be a pain. So liner style gloves and hand warmers in the pockets is a great idea. Those rechargeable gloves are super bulky, and trust me with that amount of money you can buy some really nice leather and gore-tex gloves. Gloves that would keep your hands warm at temps below -20.

Why would you take a phone into the stand? If I wanted to play with a phone I'd stay at home. Turn the thing off and pay attention to nature. If nature bores you so much you need a phone then you need a different hobby than hunting.

Wonder if not even having a phone in the house at home had some thing to do with great grand dad getting so many bucks back in the day where there were few around to get.
Having nothing to play with he hunted.
