Out west wouldn't be as much an issue as it's in a pack but here in WI i usually carry it by hand.
I know I didn't like having a metal riser on my bow.
I was looking at weather reports and looks like I better take my snowshoes for the hunt in two weeks.
Mike,
I haven't used it in cold weather yet.
That is what gloves are for
Yes, I typically carry it in my pack or use a sling.

Alright, how can you tell it's a doe at that distance instead of a buck? Other than anatomy if you can actually see to tell. I must admit I don't know too much about your quarry.

All males have a black cheek patch, females do not.

Nice shooting Ernie, glad you were able to anchor the buck. That is definitely food for thought on the erroneous yardage reading.

Nice job and write-up Ernie.

I am headed out Wednesday morning for my annual trip to the Newcastle area. Looks like it's gonna be a cold one!

Congratulations on both kills.
You still amaze me shooting at those distances with your custom made pistols. It is hard for me with the rifle, hard to imagine doing it with a pistol.
Thanks for the posts and for the teaching.
