Re: What Is The Lowest Temp You've Hunted?
-30f with the wind howling, SW Mt.. We were thankful the truck started on the first growl cause thats all the battery we had. Had to let it run 30-40 minutes to get it out of gear. Old truck, had a thermos on the floor freeze with the heaters on. A creek ice dammed just as we came to it, it diverted over the road, we were glad to get out. Shot one old snowshoe hare with my 41 magnum, left ear still rings from that one. Under the heading of God works in strange ways, we came upon a woman with a broke down car, a baby, and 2 kids about dark, miles from anywhere, and gave them a ride to town. I'm not sure that would have turned out good otherwise. As it was with the woman and baby up front, the 2 bigger kids and I got in back, (an old single layer aluminum uninsulated shell), and covered up with all the sleeping bags, blankets, laid out on our duffels. I really believe that was the purpose of the whole trip.
I'll leave it to other folks these days.
