What are some good ways to keep your feet warm while hunting ? Thats my biggest problem while hunting colder temps. Is there a boot you like or is the warmth in the socks your wear? My feet sweat. I saw a show the other day that said put anti persperant on your feet have any of you tried that and does it work?

If your sitting on stand, you can get the camo overboots.... Not sure what they are called, but you carry them to your stand, and once settled in, slide them over your boots, they are thick insulated boot covers, they keep your feet very warm, my wife loves em, you just have to pack em in and out.

I ALWAYS carry a pair of sox with me, and if I have a long/tough walk I switch out my sox whe I get into stand, you would not believe how much warmer your feet will be with insulated boots and dry clean sock, give it a try, you will be pleasantly surprised!

I have the Artic Shield boot covers and I think they work barely, maybe most by stopping wind from feet, and cold from the tree stand.

The other thing is to use a piece of padding or carpet on the platform of your stand to help insulate your feet from cold metal...

Don't wear cotton socks. wear a thin nylon sock with a wool sock over it. nylon will wick away sweat, and wool will keep them warm.

Another thing to remember, use wool socks, to wick sweat moisture away from your feet, and wear boots a half size too large. Tight boots and socks can restrict bloodflow causing your feet to get cold.

Smartwool socks and those nylon undersocks do the trick pretty well. I had my toes frostbitten when I was in the Army, and they're pretty sensitive to the cold, but that combination sure helps keep my feet warm.

I use foot powder and wool blend socks. That works pretty good for me. Same thing as antipersperant.

Those great big overboots are called "icebreakers" and they flat work.

My dad got sold on them when I was a kid (25 years ago LOL) when I was sitting in the stand with him and he was freezing his butt off and asked if I wanted to go. I was NOTORIOUS for cold feet but he had just gotten these boot blankets. I wanted to keep hunting. My feet have literally never gotten cold if I put them on as soon as I get in the stand. Especially with a handwarmer or two tossed in.

When I am bowhunting I drop a heat pad down my boot, tape it to my toe or somehting similiar.
