weel that would depend on you if you cant sit in your stand try to do some stalking so you can move around to keep your blood pumping and remember it's not so much about the kill but getting out in the woods

for me too cold is 19 degrees(I've never really experienced anything less than that)

Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.

well im a person that is cold really easy because i have really low iron in my blood so this isnt an issue for alot of people but for me it is a very serious issue.. i do have a heater in my blind but even at that the wind is gona cut through it easily because its high winds out... but i need to decide now if im going out or not

all depends on how much the wife is complaining. I have cloths to help stay warm. if its a windy day I will set in the ground blind at the bottom of a ridge or atleast over half way down it. most of the time that elimanates most to all the wind. as far as temp I dont know the coldest I've been hunting in but here in Kentucky temp in the teens is about the lowest it gets and thats at night. the only times I can say I've flat out been cold I got wet. snow melting, rain or what ever but I was wet might have just been my hands or my butt from seat pad in stand, but wet to me is misarable.

With the temps that low and wind that high just stay in and be warm. Your face will get wind burned like crazy even if all body parts are covered well your face is usually opened up the most whether you are on stand or stalking. Play it safe and keep the 4ft cheater bar well at bay.
