Where to buy heat packs to ship fish??

I've never had to ship fish during this cold season before, but I need to now. Where do I go to buy heat packs used in shipping livestock?

Thanks Tiffi,

I need to ship out tomorrow, so I need to get it locally. Any ideas?

You can use hand warmers. Hot Hands is a well known company (atleast around this area) that sells hand warmers. I think you can find them mostly at a hardware or sporting store. Just remember to keep it protected. Lay it between two thin paper plates or something like that. You don't want it laying against the bag directly.

Coincidently, I bought a package of 6 yesterday for 1.97. These can be found at walmart in the hunting section. They come in different sizes.

Ohhh, thanks a lot Hara. I would have never thought to look in the hunting section and I like to hear it's cheap too.
