With long days of hunting ahead, as well as time spent in tree stands and ground blinds, keeping your toes warm will make your outdoor adventure more pleasant and enjoyable. Don't allow a case of the shivers sending you home before your search is declared a success. Below are a few ideas for keeping your toes and feet warm during the hunting season so you can stay focused.
Sweat is the most common cause of cold feet. If you're wearing thick socks and wearing insulated boots, and you're hiking to your tree stand or blind for more than 5 or 10 minutes, as is commonly the case while hunting on public land, your feet will start sweating profusely! Change out of your sweaty exercise socks and into your wool ones after you've arrived at your stand or blind. Your hiking boots will be toasty warm, and you'll be able to start your quest.
Buying the best-insulated boots you can afford for your specific hunting trip is definitely worth the price. Before you fire the trigger, consider the sort of hunting you'll be conducting as well as the weather. When it comes to hunting boots, there is a broad variety of quality and price, so you'll have to figure out what best matches your budget and your feet.
To enable allowance for extra weight like socks or foot warmers, buy your boots a half to a full size larger than what you normally wear. Even the extra air space acts as an insulator, keeping your feet toasty warm. Make sure to try on the boots with numerous sock layers and walk about before you buy them.
Toe warmers, as previously said, are an excellent method to keep your feet warm during deer season. Just be careful not to activate them too soon, because your toes will become too warm, start sweating, and your feet will freeze. To reduce heat conduction, place an insulating barrier between your feet and the base of your stand or blind, such as foam or old carpet. During your quest, make sure to keep your feet moving. Curl your toes, bend your ankles, shift your weight from one foot to the other, and stretch the muscles in your legs and feet. None of these actions will be noticed by wildlife, but they will keep the blood flowing.
