Welcome to Women Hunt Too!

The word huntress isn’t a name or a title. The word huntress comes from the way you feel about yourself when your are hunting. You become a huntress in your heart and it becomes one with your soul while respecting the land and Gods creatures.
Staying Warm on a Cold Hunt
- Put some fuel in your stomach. Eat a warm, filling meal before you head out.
- Don't shower just before a hunt, even though you think your hair may be dry it isn't 100% and will hold moisture. Moisture equals cool down.
- Wear boots a little bit too big to allow for doubled up socks and/or toe warmers.
- Make sure one of those pairs of socks has some wool in it. Wool means warmth and the more the better.
- Some folks have had good luck with heated battery powered socks and/or insoles.
- Back in the old days parents had you place your socked foot into an empty, clean, dry, bread bag or grocery store type plastic bag without holes to keep your feet dry if you had any leaks and to keep the warmth in. Still holds true today. A cheap and easy fix.
- Bring a small piece of rug or cardboard to put your feet on while sitting hunting. This will act as a barrier between your cozy toes and the frozen ground.
- Wear a dry cotton layer close to your skin then a polyester blend on your torso and limbs to help trap your body heat in. Layers are key here.
- I found bib style hunting pants to be warmer than regular hunting pants. If your coat rides up in the back, your heat wont escape as easily.
- Slightly larger outer wear jacket to allow for layers. (Yes folks ask me all the time about camouflage prints. I like some camo print patterns better than others, but in the end all that matters is that you break up your pattern. Also the majority of the lines in your camo print should go up and down. Trees, bushes, plants, etc. all grow straight up and down in the woods.)
- Now this one is tricky because of handling your weapon you will need to adjust this idea to your situation. Wearing a thin pair of fitting gloves, then a thin rubber glove or plastic glove over top (again to trap heat ) and finally a big pair of mittens or gloves over top. Some folks don't like all the bulk so adjust it to fit how you hunt and what works best for you.
- Have a a couple of hand warmers disposable or reusable in your pockets will add to your comfort.
- Wear a neck cuff or collar for added neck warm they tend to stay put a little better. I prefer one that is reversible orange on one side and camo on the other. A properly wrapped scarf will work as well.
- Snug fitting beanie knit or fleece so you are able to wear a hood over top for extra warmth.
- Lastly a very important piece of the puzzle is a camouflaged blanket or an old sleeping bag. I have been laughed at for doing this but it has certainly added more time to my hunt by staying warm and stay out longer on those really bad days.
Hunts are better when the kills come in twos!

What do you do with the hide of your game? Or the legs?
I was taught to use ALL of the deer when I take one. The hides get tanned and cover the back of a recliner or are turned into a rug. The feet are mounted bend and screwed to a log for a gun rack for the wall. The antlers, usually wallmounts. Meat goes in the freezer. The carcass goes back into the ground in the garden to give calcium and such back to the soil. ~ Stacey Web Designer
