No, but I sat for 5 hours with the bow yesterday afternoon. It was windy as heck but warmer, 18 degrees. I heard a fox so I barked back at him....had him come by at 15 yards. That was cool. Then just before dark I passed up a small 5 or 6 pointer that walked by me at about 12 yards. At first I thought it was a doe and I got all excited that I'd get to shoot, as it got closer I saw antlers. Damn it! .

 

Today I have to fix a brake line that popped on my brothers car and change a thermostat on my other brothers truck. Fixing cars in the cold is worse than hunting in the cold, but that's pretty obvious. lol.... I might get out for predators later tonight though.

 

Good luck Matt and anyone else out there.

I am working...again...haven't slowed down since December.  I haven't seen the sun in weeks.

I spent a few days this week lying under my '02 Highlander fixing the transmission.  I just can't deal with the cold like i used to now that I'm on a blood thinner, but the good news is truck fixed and no need for a new tranny!  Wooohooo!  And the deer in my woodlot are all over the place today.  I tossed about 4 lbs of black oil sunflower seeds over the fence and they darn near charged me to get to it  :)

 

Saw my 2.5 year old 5 pointer and I keep thinking about taking him out, but not today.

Good deal on the tranny Brian!

Ken let me know what you think of them. I have them too but they didn't do much the times I tried them. The cold of the platform seemed to negate them

I've been putting down a 1/2" to 3/4" piece of foam on the floor of my deer stands in the cold weather to help keep the cold from radiating up through my boots and it helps!

Foam isn't the right material. it's more like a cross between foam and rubber.  I have it in the back of my truck to stand on when I'm putting on or taking off my waders, and I use it in my metal deer stands as well.

Nice, yeah I think that's definitely an important add-on that helps a lot to cut down on the cold feet.

Well I got one midday. I glassed this deer and somehow missed the buttons. Head on I could not see them, from the side I thought I saw a dark spot, but it didn't jump out at me as a button, definitely barely there.  Turned out to be a fairly large body button, really thought it was a young doe...but in this area, might be better to shoot a buck over a doe anyway.  Certainly won't go to waste, already at the butcher being made into some breakfast sausage, filet medallions, and ground with pork! :up:

 

BTW, within 5 minutes there was a beautiful grey fox on this deer, ripped it's tail off.  I have video of him cruising around as I was following the blood trail.  Cold weather has them hungry!

Just had two come in a doe and a button buck. Momma must have got a little wind of me as she just left. Feet are toasty warm with the new insoles

Man I wish my insoles worked that well, maybe mine are defective?  I literally felt no change with them.  I tried them at home and I can feel them get a little warm if I press one between my hands but not really warm, certainly not hot.

He's thinking, "what is this guy doing to ruin my dinner".  Funny thing is, you were thinking the same about him.....

 

Congrats on the deer in this cold!

I had exactly the same thing happen last Friday.  I shot one, waited 15 minutes, and when I got to it the tail was off, intestines were pulled out the backside, and the fox had peed on it.   :rant:

I had to give you a "funny" hit because that's such a canine thing.  It's the old, "I got your deer right here" as he pees on it thing :rofl:
