How to Stay Warm

Staying warm on a winter hunt depends on what you wear and what you do.

Today's hi-tech clothing gives us some big advantages over the hunters of pioneer days and the native Americans of primitive times. They didn't have Polartec®, Gore-Tex®, Thinsulate®, and other brands. All of these have been around for 20 years or more, and I'm not even up-to-date on whatever has come out in the last couple of years, but I do know how to stay warm even without new technology. I've learned that staying warm in the woods is possible without spending hundreds of your hard-earned dollars.

Although the weather isn't very cold as I write this post in mid-January, we've had some frigid weather and we're getting more. And I'm not saying you shouldn't buy warm clothing. I'm only saying if you're out there muzzleloader hunting, ice fishing, shed antler hunting, or anything else when the thermometer drops to negative territory, you might benefit by reading "How to Stay Warm." It's what you need to know before you go spend those big dollars. Click here to read it at the Havalon Knives website.
