How to Stay Warm

Gun seasons are mostly over, and I wrote this during the Pennsylvania firearms season. But it's even more relevant in the later seasons when hunters are out with muzzleloaders and bows, or hunting predators.

Cold is tough for some hunters to cope with, but for centuries man has lived in northern climes where he had to survive cold temperatures — with a lot fewer advantages than we have today.

Over the years I've hunted in some frigid temperatures, and have learned how to deal with the cold. In my December 2 column in the Jamestown Gazette, "How to Stay Warm," I'm passing along some of what I've learned, and it may be more timely now than it was a couple of weeks ago.
