Question Shooting Gloves

I am looking for shooting glove recommendations. I would like a more field orientated glove, not a "golf glove", yet I would prefer something pretty light... possible?

Just go & try on several pairs of gloves. When I used to hunt in IL, I probably went through 8 different pairs of gloves. It took a long time before I found something that could keep my fingers warm and would not be so thick that they would interfere with the feel of the gun.

I think I ended up with some fairly thin leather with thinsulate lining.

I'm curious, why do you need gloves for hunting in California?

Not for warmth, that's for sure!!!!

Thin leather gloves without any lining I think will be the ticket. I would like them for hunting and to try for shooting clays. Believe it or not, the gun gets too hot to touch just from the sun! I don't know if I will like shooting with gloves or not. I thought I would try it though.

Gloves are excellent at all times.

They keep your fingers, and the oil on them, off the gun and the blood off your hands. Typically where I hunt I'm scrambling and grabbing bushes and whatnot and I like gloves.

Filson makes a very very thin upland glove that's still pretty tough. I just got a pair for this season. I recommend buying as small as you can squeeze your hand into and stretching them out.

Thanks Jack!!!!

My hands are so big that most gloves have to be stretched out anyway.
