How to Stay Warm on a Deer Stand While Hunting
Article provides information for hunters to stay warm while deer hunting.
Remember what your mom always told you, keep your head covered. There is some statistic about how much body heat is lost through the head, but I have forgotten what it is. The bottom line is that a lot of heat is lost through your head, so wear a toboggan to keep your head warm or at least a hat. Ski masks and other head gear can help as well as long as it doesn't interfere with your hunting. The good thing about hats and toboggans is that they can be left off for the hike in and put on when you start to get cold while deer hunting. After your head, your hands are the next most important body part as the too lose a lot of heat and are needed to shoot. Wear gloves that will allow you to shoot comfortably and consider a football style hand warmer or large mittens to cover your gloves.
Another big thing to avoid if you want to stay warm on your deer stand is sweat. Getting your underclothes wet with sweat is a guaranteed way to become cold while sitting on a deer stand. When possible hike in wearing clothes that are comfortable and put on your outer layer when arriving at your deer stand. Avoid clothes and boots that are too tight as the reduced circulation will cause you to get cold quicker. Wiggle your toes inside your boots and make other small movements to keep your circulation flowing. Food is also essential to keeping your body warm. Trail mixes of nuts and fruit, chocolate, and jerky are all great deer stand foods.
Keeping warm in your deer stand is also a mental exercise. Try not to think about how cold you are. Read a book, count leaves on a tree, try to name all of the Presidents, or do any other mental activity to keep your mind occupied.
Inexpensive disposable hand warmers can also help to warm you up while in your deer stand. The warmers are great in your gloves and boots, as well as just held against cold cheeks, ears, and necks.
Fortunately, when a big buck walks out in front of your deer stand you tend to lose focus on the temperature. All that you have to do is stay warm in your stand until the buck deer shows up.
