Get some of these chemical reaction hand warmers, see link. I use the jersey gloves inside of my other gloves which are usually some form of insulated leather gloves. I put the warmer pad on the back of my hand outside of the jersey glove. That is not an ideal setup for shooting, but I?m talking about work wise. Some of those gloves with the swing off mitten tips might be good for shooting. I?d be surprised if the didn?t make those with little sewn in pockets to hold these type of warmers. Just keeping one of these in your coat pocket to warm your hand that way is better than nothing. As long as these things are contained from direct wind they usually last at least 3-6 hours.

Dehydration is a problem in the winter. You don't know it is happening (no sweaty clothes). As you dehydrate, your capillaries shrink up to accomidate the smaller amount of fluid in your body, reducing blood flow, thus heat distribution. Drink lots of water before going outside, and drink often while out.

Notice the steam from your breath each time you breath, that's where your fluids are going.

It sounds dumb, but there is some real truth behind the old cliche "If your feet are cold, put on a hat". A face mask can help conserve body heat too.

From the feet up:LL Bean boots with a liner,jeans with carhartt lined bibs, flannel shirt, carhartt lined jacket w/ vest,fleece lined hat w/ear flaps,carhartt insulated gloves or lined leather mitts w/an insert,depending on what I'm doing.Fingers may get cold with the gloves but thats it.If feet or hands are wrapped too tight circulation is cut down and there is no thin air gap around them and they're going to get KOLD. A balaclava is a big help too when you are exposed to wind.
When deer hunting keep your rifle loosely on a sling and your hands in your pockets with either chemical or the old joni hand warmers.You may be able to get a quick shot off.At your age don't feel too bad at not knocking down Bambi with one shot.Sometimes around me it sounds like there's fire fight going on with all these auto-loaders in use.
By the way what are you using for a rifle? Just curious.

I use wool liners with leather gloves over the top. Also have a hand warmer made by Zippo it runs on lighter fluid and works pretty well they have a small 6 hour one and a larger 12 hour one. It works pretty well. I have uswd it at work a bunch of times the thing is awesome.

Whatever you wear, warm them up before putting them on. It saps a lot of heat to warm up a pair of gloves; warm ones get the blood flowing as soon as you put them on.

I"m 82. For the last 5-6 years I"ve had to wear mittens when it get down into the 30s. My hands/fingers are too messed up from arthritis to get gloves on. But... I just found knitted fingerless gloves I can get on. My fingers are so short they barely stick out and there is a mitten attached you can flip over your fingers. I haven"t been able to work in my shop for 3 weeks. I"m going to try them tomorrow.

Try wearing latex gloves inside your winter gloves, it helps sometimes.

I got stranded on a back road during a blizzard 5 years ago. I didn't think I got that cold but apparently froze my fingers and ears. My fingers haven't been right since. This winter has been especially hard on my fingers
