Not very warm

After hopping around in my stand for a full day at -15° C  (5° F) to try to warm myself, the return to camp at the end of the day is comforting but not necessarily very warm.  During my last 5 deer hunting seasons, I stayed between 175 to 200 days in a tent in temperatures ranging from +12° C (53° F) to -28° C (-18° F).  My greatest lesson was to understand that the equipment’s quality makes all the difference.  Be it in the clothing, the mechanics, the kitchen, the beds and the camera support arms.  Have a good day.
