    ingenious socks for less cold weather, or REI merino wool hiker or lite hiker for cold or less cold. a little goldbond in each sock and each boot helps alot!

    Re: socks

    I prefer to do much of my hunting in the mountains (less people and presssure). I just recently started using the Vermont Darn tough Socks (merino wool) and found they work outstanding. I don't layer, otherwise my boots won't fit correctly. I always carry extra socks, even if I am out for just a day hunt. I like gold bond the best for powder but I don't put it in my socks. That has the possibility of 'clumping'. The best way is to put it directly on your feet each night.
