Default cold weather hunting

So its suppose to be -2 degrees on Tuesday the day I'm off work. Any tips? I've always had luck with a small pop up and a buddy heater next to a picked corn field. Others?

I love late season hunting. Mid morning and dusk are my two favorite times. Good luck!

Well my hunting is done for this season, but good luck! Speaking of buddy heaters,,, my parents bought me one of those this year for Christmas... anxious to use it!

Had I went to PA would have been hunting in-35* wind chill, not! ML season is done for me. Not the season I had thought it was going to be nor did it compare to last season. Going to possibly try to crossbow hunt the weekend of the 17th, son thinks we can hunt SE Ohio and he will load the crossbow for me. We'll see.

what model heater did you get? I have the Mr heater,buddy heater. I use it in NC hunting. It really helps. has been times without it I would have headed to the house. I have found that buying the small propane tanks in the summer or cheaper. Also make sure to have 2 tanks, depending on how cold and how much you use it and how high you run it it can go thru a tank in 3-4 hrs. I also got a 5lb tank and a connector to use when gonna stay in a blind for a few days at a time. will save you some money and wont have to worry about propane as much

I never even got my flintlock out of the gun cabinet for deer season this year. First time that happened in a lot of years. I only had three days off from work during the entire muzzleloader season & the first day it was like monsoon season here. Then, the other two days the temp was at -18* F so I stayed in the house.
