Thread: Rubber or Commercial Fishing gloves for hunting AK?

    Default Rubber or Commercial Fishing gloves for hunting AK?

    Just wondering if you see many Alaskan guides wearing rubber style gloves (or commercial fishing gloves) for hunting? Obviously, many people wear thin latex gloves for gutting animals, but I'm talking about wearing thicker rubber gloves for regular hunting/trekking. I just finished watching a National Geographic documentary and a bear researcher/hunter appeared to be wearing them and I've also seen a BC guide wear a pair. Just wondering if it's more common than I see and what kind or brand they wear if they do.

    i carry several pairs of the orange ones, i have a larger pair that i can wear a liner inside of work great for grabbing devils club and anything else as i slip down a mountain or go up thru the laders, keeps my hands dry and still gives me enough grip to carry stuff and work the focus on my binos, in wet climates, i love them, they draw pretty good too as long as they are not lined.

    I carry a set of fleece lined seamless neoprene gloves. I havn't tested them in this specific task but I think they will be perfect for cold weather butchering. I know that they are perfect for getting an ATV unstuck in the cold. Nothing makes for cold hands like working in swamp water. I don't think they would be great for grabbing devils club though.

    they are not that great for drying either once you get them really sweaty or wet.

    Default windproof fleece...

    We float NW rivers each Fall fly fishing for dollies. I have come to value windproof everything. The wind is what gets you. At least on our NW Alaska floats. The windproof materials are very valued by us. Especially jackets, gloves, and caps. The gloves I bought are on sale now at Cabelas for about $11/pair. Very warm. Loose enough for you to put a thin liner glove in as well. There are several other models made that may be better. Take a look....
