Wondering what folks recommend for gloves for hunting (everything from sheep, goat, to brown bear hunts). Any favorite name brands/type?
I always bring a few pairs of the polypro-type glove liners to keep my hands warm since I cannot stand to wear bulky insulated gloves.
When it is chilly out these liners usually are more than warm enough--they also provide some grip and minimal protection, even when wet. I bring multiple pairs in case I rip them or need to leave them dry out for a day.
Over them I usually wear a linerless leather glove that I pick up at a sporting goods store.
I then beat the heck out of the leather glove for one season and throw them out at the end because they are either ripped up by alders and berry bushes or shrunken, hardened, and dirty from drying out after a hunt.
Wondering if there is a specific brand name/type that would survive more than one hunting season.
