That's a tall order in hunting gloves. I've tried hundreds of different gloves and the best I've found for upland that are kind of warm but still give you good feel are.......drumroll please......

Foot-Joy Wintersof Golf Gloves MSRP $22.00
http://www.footjoy.com/catalog/mens.asp?c=46

They sell them at Dicks Sporting Goods, Golf Galaxy and other big sporting goods stores.

Enjoy

I like jlptexashunter's suggestion. While not waterproof, I use glove liners in made of polypropylene or fleece. Another alternative: the Hatch Police Gloves http://www.securityandsafetysupply.com/ ... tch-8.html Great.

I remember seeing some in a cabela's catalog or bass pro that might be what your looking for.

they were a cold weather fishing glove. I think they only came in black however.

The gloves that jlptexashunter mentioned look good to me.
In my experiance you can get the best "shooting" gloves in stores that sell golf or riding equipment :!:
Best regards.

These are the ones I use.
Cabela's Kangaroo Leather GORE-TEX® / Thinsulate™ Shooting Gloves Item:IH-950434

My current pair is going on the 3rd year and are great. The other gloves mentioned above are for cold weather but do no say waterproof.

The only thing I like re rag wool. While not waterproof they will stay warm when wet and are inexpensive. I keep a couple pairs on hand in case one gets wet then just change em out. They also dry pretty quickly.

Keep in mind that you generate a lot of heat walking around on an upland hunt. So, insulated gloves could keep you too warm. This morning, it was 21 degrees. I started out with a pair of goretex insulated gloves. They got hot quick even at 21 degrees. I then tried my gloves that have the fingers exposed, but also have a cover for the fingers to make the gloves more mitten like. It was nice to have the cover flipped open and let heat dissipate from the finger tips. By 10 am, I wasn't wearing any gloves as it was 38 degrees.
