if you ever set in a tree stand on a cold morning you know that your feet get cold reel easy from the coldness and the metal that is cold under your feet . i take a peace of plastic or heavy duty cardboard and wrap in with a cloth material and glue it on there make sure it fits snug on the pl;atform this helps keep the cold metal from your feet and your feet will not get as cold as as they will from standing on bare metal another trick of the trade

On advice from magazines, I glued some outdoor carpet on my climber base. It never got cold enough for me to really tell whether it worked or not.

I had a real bad problem with my feet getting cold even on not so cold days and found a couple of pieces of closed cell foam. I leave one in my ladder and put the other in my backpack when I use my climber. Haven't gotten cold feet since.

Good tip rube. I just use the chemical toe/foot warmers when it gets below twenty. Those things work great and I consider the cost a small price to pay.

Every deer hunter has an old pair of worn out wool socks. Don't throw them away. Take both socks and turn them half way inside out: pull the top of the sock down to where it meets the toe. Slide the 2-ply wool sock over the toe of your boot, since the toes are what freeze. Put a hand warmer on top of your boot, so it is in between the sock and the boot. These stuff easily into any pocket with no extra weight to lug thru the woods. I call them "TOE-BOGENS". I also have a pair I made from sewing camo fleece from the Walmart fabric department. They are small and just slip over the toe of your boot. I wish I had enough $$ to patent this!! Any and all money donations on this sure fire way to keep your toes warm on the stand,is greatly appreciated!!

The key to warm feet is to keep your feet from sweating en route to your stand , and don't wear boots that are too tight . Wick Away socks help keep the moisture away from your feet .

I got the Arctic Shield boot pullovers. You can roll em up and put in your pack. If really cold , slip in adhesive toasty toes. Works for me. Good hunting.
