Hunting During a Polar Vortex By Brandon Vallorani January 29, 2014 If you’re like me, you don’t like letting rain, sleet, snow, or hail keep you from hunting. But what about deadly cold? The recent Polar Vortex caused record breaking low temperatures across the country, and there’s reason to suspect we haven’t seen the coldest of 2014. If you’re wanting to get out there during these icy blasts, more power to you–hunting in weather that can potentially kill you can be a profoundly humbling experience–but make sure you follow these tips so you can stay safe. • Minimize your time outside. If you’ve set your decoys and blinds and you’re waiting for the fowl to fly, stay in your truck as long as possible. There’s no reason to waste good energy and body heat if there’s nothing to shoot at yet. • Layer up. Stock up on hats, long underwear, sweaters, and parkas. If that’s not enough, try an electric heated vest. The more waterproof and insulated you can be the better. • Keep your hands warm especially, and don’t let them get wet. Glomitts with the fold-‐back mitten top are great. Put a hand warmer in each and you’re golden. • Pad your hunting blind. In cold weather, the freezing ground and absorb a lot of your body eat if you’re in contact with it. Put a foam camping pad in there, the thicker the better (at least an inch or two). • Clean your gun’s action, magazine tube, and spring. Use some BreakFree to ensure that the action cycles without incident, and that you can load more than a single shot. • Put electrical tape over the muzzle of your gun. You’ve gotta do whatever it takes to keep your muzzle clean from the mud and the snow. If it gets in there, it could melt, travel down the barrel to the bolt, and then refreeze, compromising your firing pin.
