DAY TWO!  Your first full day of firearms deer season kicks off with some wind and snow as a small squall sneaks across the western half of the state in the morning, Reports of half-rutted bucks are coming in, meaning the best is yet to come.  We take a trek for outdoor news in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS:

GIMME A HAND. Keeping hands warm is key during cold hunts and ice fishing trips when manual dexterity is a must. Start with a selection of handwarmers to generate warmth underneath the layers you’ll put over the top.

LAYER UP.  Finger gloves will keep wind directly off skin and keep digits free for gripping bows and shotguns in the field when the time calls for it.  On cool days, flip-top gloves like glommitts will allow for easy access when a bird flushes and they can also accommodate tight finger gloves for added shielding.

WARMER.  For sitting, or other times of just watching, consider finger gloves under oversized choppers or mittens with a heat pack inside to keep things toasty. On the same line, a warming tube that can be belted to the waist makes a great place to keep your hands when hanging out in the field.

 

Stay Warm. Stay Sharp!
