Jay, you have some good ideas there. Next time I'll find somebody like you to teach me. This stuff could save your life. Also, I've seen tight fitting thin but insulated body suits that hold your body heat in.

I find it much more fun to hunt with a couple friends. Although If I do hunt by myself I tend to get better results.

That was imprinted on me very early in hunters ED class. They showed us a video that went over a couple of real life deaths in the woods. One was a fishing column writer from a paper who went out to a new secret location. He slipped and went under, ended up dying from hypothermia. Took a long time to find him because he hadn't told anyone where he was going.
I used to have that video when I taught Hunter Ed. It had like 4 or 5 scenarios of that. One other one I remember was the guy that took his wife and son on a mountain hike one afternoon and he hadn't checked the weather. A couple guys met them on the way up and warned him there was some bad weather coming in. But he arrogantly said they'd be ok. He killed him self and his wife and kid because he didn't listen to advice. A cold front moved in that evening and the temperature dropped about 50 degrees that night and they froze to death. Only his dog survived.
Then there was the guy that was hunting with his old hunting group but got separated. He kept walking when he realized he was lost instead of sitting down and building a fire and waiting for the group to find him. They found him in the snow the next morning close to a logging road. He didn't die, but he had to have several fingers and toes amputated due to frost bite. That's some spooking crap right there.
