Cold weather hunting gear...

So since the cold is coming around, I was wondering what type of tents and or sleeping bags you would recommend for the current season, so I can stay comfortable even in below zero temperatures.

I just got in a pair of 2000 gram boots for iowa winter hunting. You wouldnt make it in a tent. A motor home would be a maybe if you could keep shit from freezing. It gets coooold up here.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

This.

A wall tent with a cot setup off the ground and a wood burning stove. It's what we use, and you pretty much sweat your ass off all night.

I use an okay tent and a good sleeping bag. Setup tent where there are natural wind breaks around and I personally go for a little off level. This help get the water off the tent when snow/ice melts. Also, dig drainage around tent.

Get sleeping mat(s) to lift yourself off the ground. Eat right for metabolism, keep hydrated and drink warm stuff in the morn. Dress in layers...etc. Either way, come crap time your screwed baring your ass in the wind and cold - but you'll warm up.

IMO 0 degrees is one thing, 0 degrees in 10 mph and high winds is totally different. Stop the wind the best you can and you'll be happier.
