    The birds are there, some of us just might have to wait until the "fairweather" hunters are staying at home in front of the fireplace. I dont care how cold it is, I went out when it was -30 last year and shot birds. Its all about determination...and love of the game.

    not weak just smarter. some of the stupid things i did when i was younger are starting to come back to haunt me. starting to get aches and pains and the cold just makes it worse. trucks have greatly improved over the years. love heated seats and adjustable cup holders

    I am a cold weather guy too. This is when I have had some of the best hunting. Iowa at xmas, can't wait. Thats when I get back home so its always cold, plus it seems you guys have still left me plenty of birds. It is the heat that gets me. I can Ice fish in my under shorts.

    sent a shiver up my spine just thinking about it. brings back bad memories of being on call for gas company. coldest night i ever worked was -37. wind chill that night was -85 to -90. had to replace 4 frozen meters that night and i'm proud to say i didn't do it in my shorts.

    I'm with you there. I would much rather be playing outside in 10 degree weather than 100 degrees.
