anyone have any solutions for this problem? The eyepiece fogs up when the whether turns cold. This  of course, is when I need them the most for hunting. What can I do? Thanks "frustrated at twilight"

I push the eye cups in as if I had glasses on which increases the distance from my eye and creates air flow.  Works like a charm.
 
To hold them steady you can rest the top part of the oculars on your eye brows and if the eye relief is too close you just lower your chin.
 
Hard to explain but it works.

If you can keep your binos inside your coat it helps as well.  Keeps them close to you body and warms them up some. 

I always do that when hunting in the cold.  It sucks having to unzip my coat every time I want to use them, but they never really fog on me when I do that.

Have done the same thing Chris mentioned if the binos are cold, but do prefer to keep them inside my coat.  I use the over the should bino strap and like it, but some don't.
