    Check with a motorcycle dealer or online vendor of motorcycling accessories - heated gloves (powered by 9-volt batteries or the bike's battery) are a popular item this time of the year.

    I have electric gloves for winter riding. They are powered by the bikes 12 volt battery. They are bulky because of the heating wires that run through them. If you are going to be stationary while hunting, they would work if you take along a 12 volt battery. I would look long and hard at good hand warmers before I spent the money for the gloves.

    I have a pair of cold weather electric Harley gloves. I paid $80 at a clearance price, they normally go for $150. Too much money just for hunting. Plus, you need to carry along the battery. So, I would look into good handwarmers. Steve

    Reminds me of a time when I had an uncle that wanted to energize his battery powered coverhauls with 110 electricity. He honestly wired them up so he could work in his shop and not have to start a fire in the stove out there. When he put them on he said,"they're getting warm, they are getting warm, they are getting hot, they are getting hot! Then he hit the end of the electric cord that he'd wired these coverhauls into and started to strip them off. There were black burn marks in the pattern of the wiring of the coverhauls on his long johns.:)My Dad and his little brother were too busy falling down laughing to help their big brother in his time of need to get those flaming coverhauls off his *ss,. For many years that was a story to help get those long winter evenings over in a hurry. Just go get the best gloves you can find and don't worry about getting cold, you will get your blood flowing when you are walking out to your site and you won't get cold. Dan :)

    That sounds like a story that happened to me when I was a young Rooster at the age of 13.

    Well I decided to heat up an acetylene ballon with a match and the out come was 10 day's in the hospital with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree burns on me.

    Even my own grand maw didn't reconize me when she came to visit and she went back to the nurse's station and said little Foggy is not in that room but they said yes he is but we can't clean the black Sutt of him yet because the skin will roll of with it.

    <a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v294/foghorn220/TV%20Stars/?action=view&current=buckwheat1.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    So it was a couple of days later before I was pink looking again with the new fresh skinn.

    Buy a strap on hand warmer with fleese (like the old womens muffs), you can slide your hands into both sides. Put a couple of Chem packs in for heat. You won't even need gloves. I've used this system in -10 below duck hunting, many times.
