Default Keeping warm?

After frezzing my butt off in a deer blind this year, I'm curious about what you guys are doing to stay warm.
I bring extra socks and long johns, but still end up with froozen toes.
The little hand warmer things don't seem to work very well.
So, What are your secrets to a comfortable hunt in the COLD?

For me , if my feet get cold I'm done. Can't sit still time to just go, but I've started putting the small hand warmers in my boots and have not had cold toes since. I put on a pair of socks then hand warmer on top of my toes and on top of the sock ( gets too hot for me against skin) and put another thinner sock over the other and that top sock holds the heat warmer in place. ( dont like under toes, feels too funny trying to walk and I think warms better on top anyways)

I do the handwarmer in the boot too. Its been two seasons hear in NY that we haven't had cold weather. Its got to get below 20F to be considered cold. The sitting in the cold dosen't bother me so much. Its the get up and trying to get moving that is hard. I swear the hardest thing to do hunting is to unhook the bow or gun from the "let down" line of a treestand after sitting for 4 hours and hardly moving. That or trying to unzip and zip your fly after hardly moving for 4 hours.

best thing I have found for cold feet is mirino wool socks. bass pro has a pair that or great.they even have a life time replacement if you wear a hole in them. they have made my feet happy this season. Also I have a new best friend when Im hunting in a blind or in the shoot house
