Dont know how anxious I am to get out. 3C looks brutally cold all week. With plenty of meat in the fridge I am a 2hr hunter at best.

Yup, its going to be a little chilly. Heavy poly pros under 100% wool pants, wool socks in loose mocs or if its really cold muklucs. Heavy long wool coat and lined wool hat and your warm, and just as important for tomorrow, quiet.

It is 25* here and very windy !
The wind is what does me in and makes me really cold !
But if the snow stays it will be worth the walk in the woods ?

The wind is what makes it brutal. The heater body suit comes in handy in these temps. I have a Pennsylvania Tuxedo and other Woolrich pants and coats and they are fantastic. I try to avoid the HBS in Flintlock but with these temps forecasted when I'm tucked in the blind I think I'll wear the Woolrich and the HBS.

Kinda ticked that I took my blinds plans are to just sit along a field/gas line corner and intercept a doe as it comes to feed. Problem is it's on the top of a hill, so if there is any wind you feel it.

Colder the better as far as I am concerned. Nothing beats still hunting in frigid temps and some wind.

As others have said its the wind that gets me. I can sit in the cold and be ok but cold and windy not so much. Dosent help that since my chemotherapy 3.5yrs ago my circulation to my hands isnt the best and they get cold real fast.

I once shot A Doe, with a Flintlock, when the Temps was -17 Degrees. This probably 40 Years ago. Can`t do it now !!!

Thank God for the chemical heat pack handwarmers! If sitting, I put one under my hat and on the back of my neck - amazing at how warm you feel. I'll be out, will try to convince some friends to do some pushes during the week. If doing that, I have a better chance of staying out there as opposed to sitting. Good luck, looking forward to some pictures being posted.


Take an older friend hunting or fishing - they're the reason we do what we do!
