Most of the time when I hunted in the morning, the temp would start out in the 30's or low 40's. A time or two it got down to the upper 20's. I would dress to stay warm at that temp but as the sun came up, the temp would start going up. It often got up to the 60's or even one day 70 degrees. More than once I actually had to take clothes off to keep from getting too hot.

When I hunted in the afternoon, the temp was almost always at least 50. When I bow hunt (the season opens in mid October) I usually just wore my long sleeve camoflage tee shirt with a regular tee shirt under it and camoflage pants and regular socks in my hunting boots.

I got two deer this season. The first on Dec. 10 and the second on Jan. 21.

cold hands and feet have become a big problem with me as I get older. I use the Bass Pro marino wool socks over a poly pro liner sock and 800 gram boots. If things are really cold say 10* I put on the 2000 gram packs. For my hands I use the 18 hr body warmers in my coat pockets with light weight gloves. It's no fun when you get cold. I've bow hunted in -30* wind chills many years ago, I don't think I could do it now although the cross bow would make it easier.

thick merino socks have been the answer for me. When it gets real cold I use the warmers in my boots. It gets me through.
