    Hey everyone, I am looking to purchase some new gloves for the 2020 season. I am using a wrist ( index ) style release and I was just wondering which gloves would work the best with them?

    Thanks in advance.

    best glove for a wrist release is a pocket with a hand warmer in it

    I couldn't agree more. I have to feel that trigger, and I can't with a glove on. Also, I don't like the conflict of the wrist release and the top of a glove.

    I third this. I can get away with super thin with the index finger cut off but that's the best I can do

    to be fair; I just saw another post of his says he's in Canada. Might need a glove.

    That being said; I am usually hunting MI and WI down into the teens sometimes; and I rarely wear a trigger hand glove other than a very thin liner glove with the finger tip cut off. Just keep in in a pocket till I need to take it out...or post on LFTS and get frostbite; which also happens.

    That's a good catch, i forgot to mention that in my original post. I do live in Canada but it's in Southwestern Ontario so it would be very comparable to your MI hunts.
