So anyone gonna hunt the freeze in the morning? Temps gonna be 22 at 8. I think I might go in late and sit for 3 hrs. Got a heater for the box stand and gonna bundle up. Thing I have learned is take time walkin in and dont break sweat or u will really freeze. Think deer will move between 8 and 3 but thats too long sit in this cold weather for me.

Im going to try it out in the morning, and like you said take my time walking. The deer should be moving pretty good tomorrow.

Went this morning. Got in about 7-7:30 ish . Felt like I was walkin on cornflakes. Ice is loud. We sat till about 11 .Wasnt that cold didnt even use the heater. Saw a doe in the woods but they not moving as much as usual. Trailcam pics show bucks and some does looks like the bucks are keepin those does in the thickets and not lettin em eat alot.Needless to say good day but we have a few does down for the year so we gonna let small ones go.

spent 10 hours in the climber directly facing the wind on both Fri & Sat seeing nothing @ Red River wma. I was surrounded by 90%ice because i was in the woods at a flooded location. Anyone ever have deer walking through 1'' thick ice before? Seems as though they left my spot for higher ground. Hate that sound of breaking ice walking to the stand as well. Still fun grinding out 2 nights in the cold with 6 sleeping bags and no heater.
