    Cold gear does cut a lot of bulk when you want to stay warm on a stand, but even on a cold day, I take it off when I'm walking. I suffer more in the heat, than in the cold. Heat is anything over 50...

    I started shooting in a youth league at 8yrs old, in 1959. No seasons for kids in those days, and the equipment wasn't up to it anyway. But I have shot regularly every year since, and with luck, I...
