    Anybody brave enough to hunt in the -15 degree with wind chill temperatures. I've got my blind set up and I am going to try it. It's time to man it up. I'm more worried about having to gut the deer out then I am keeping warm. Oh, but the insides are so warm. Am I wrong for saying that.

    I did the Sunday before Christmas when the wind chills were -30, lasted almost 4hrs, didn't see anything until the ride home.

    Yes, I am, but it's the last weekend to chase whities for 8 & 1/2 months. I then go into a deep depression until turkey season.

    Are you using your flame thrower?

    Flame thrower it is, ban me wheels. I went out this morning and saw zero. Kept warm for the first hour, after that it was tough to focus on hunting when my eyelids starting freezing shut. Going out this afternoon for my last hunt of this season. It is a sad day, hopefully I can connect on something this afternoon.

    It is a sad day, last day I will be chasing whitetails this season and didn't see a single deer and froze my tail off.
