As a young hunter, my feet always got cold. I lived a few years in Montana and learned a lot of tricks. Here are my suggestions:
1. Never wear cotton socks or put cotton next to your skin - anywhere!
2. Put on some thin polypropylene socks and then a good pair of wool socks. Wool will keep you warm even when damp.
3. In Mississippi, I wear some Lacrosse Alpha Burly insulated boots when it gets cold.
4. Keep your head and neck covered because you can lose 30% of body heat from neck and head. When your feet and hands get cold, it's because your body temp drops and your brain programs the body to keep the head warm and reduces blood flow to the extremities (hands and feet).
5. With the exception of your feet - dress in layers with a wind proof outer shell.

6. It is very hard to beat some high quality goose down for those long sits in the cold.
7. Use some of those adhesive heat packs. I like to put them on the middle of my chest and then put some insulated layers over the top. When it gets really cold, I put them on the back of my neck, lower back and down the pants!!
8. Insultex thermal insulation is also great. This is what they make survival and snow mobile suits with - It is lightweight and not bulky. Check out www.idigear.com
9. Good gloves - my preference are mittens for better trigger control and texting.
