hot tip for cold hands

Recommended Posts

When fishing in cold weather. Take a ice cream bucket, start your engine and let it heat up. Place the bucket under the spray outlet. Fill it up. Place hands in bucket to warm them up. Dry with towel. Now you got warm hands!!!!!!

Not sure I'd want to do that. Water shouldn't be coming through there that warm, plus it may have a scent of exhaust/gas on it if you're running a 2 stroke. Now you've got wet hands that smell like gas, that are a bit warmer than when you started.

I'll opt for a pair of gloves. But, to each their own.

Thats not a bad idea lippy. Under the right very cold circumstances that could work. Thanks for sharing the idea.

Gloves can be wet. Even your extra pairs. When your hands are really cold with no motor or ice cream bucket pe-e in a pop can. It is heaven. You will get about 5 min. of warmth. If you have no pop can you can still warm your hands up. I would go for the gloves too. Sometimes things go bad. At that point scent does not matter. Great tip before the motor freezes up.

Neat idea. Of course be careful to not fall in - cold day - numb hands. On some boats this would be easy to do and others i t would not be so easy.

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
