Next to frozen hands, cold feet probably plague treestand deer hunters more than anything else. Face it, if someone’s feet feel like frozen blocks of ice while they are hunting, they’ll likely also feel cold all over. If someone isn’t comfortable, they are much less likely to stay in a tree stand, which is exactly where they need to be in order to have a successful hunt. A good pair of thermal socks, worn under warm boots, can keep feet comfortable when the temperature drops. Look for thick socks made of wool or manmade fibers like polyester. Wool is often warmer than synthetic materials, but acrylic socks can wick sweat away from skin, keeping feet drier, and therefore, warmer.
