    Texting Gloves

    These are thin but suffice. What are good ones?

    I could actually see it being useful if you are stand hunting. Basically sitting for hours on end can be a bit boring at times. Personally, I would just get a stylus or some other touchscreen pointer so you can keep your gloves or even mitts on and still us your phone.

    Recreational Equipment, Inc. has quite a few gloves made for that, I've checked out the Outdoor Research Sensor line and I like the warmth/feel of them.

    I have a pair of Manzellas and a pair of OR that have the touchscreen fingers. Manzellas are Windstopper as well.

    I have read it all know...
    “It’s paradoxical that the death of your quarry is besides the point and at the same time the whole point. A chase without a kill as its object is like a journey without a destination; a kill without a chase employing all the hunter’s craft is killing, not hunting.”

    I am not a fan of touch screen GPSs but do you need these or do they work with regular gloves?

    Most of my time on the phone is reading and researching, not texting. If you spend 8 hours or more a day in a treestand and have signal you too would be on it instead of when there's work to be done or spend time with the family.

    I got these:

    I wore these on the deer stand this morning, a chilly 22 F in Iowa. My hand didn't get cold until I held my bow for a while. Texting is a little akward with gloves on but it works.
