If chasing late-season whitetails with the kiddos is on the agenda, follow these simple tips to keep them warm and in the game

When the wind turns bone-chilling cold, the need to stay warm can become an overpowering mental obstacle to success for late-season deer hunters.

Taking youngsters out for a late-season adventure can be challenging to maintain comfort, keep spirits high and leave the hunt with happy smiles.

According to some experienced women hunters, who are experts in their field, it is not impossible to create an enjoyable late-season hunt for yourself and your kiddos.

They share some of their tips and tricks to help keep faces cheerful and toes warm while waiting on that wary buck.

Karin Holder of Raised Hunting, has had a lot of experience in the late-season cold and offered some tips for battling the elements.

“We used to live in Montana where the winters were long; we experienced wind and sub-zero degrees the majority of the time,” Holder said.

“We used the Primos Double Bull blind to block the wind and offer some protection from the elements.”

This allowed them to get out and hunt without being miserable. The Holders would position the blind and surround it on three sides with hay bales to provide “a ton of warmth and insulation,” Holder said.

They would finish the setup by lining the bottom of the blind with a blanket to provide a soft place to sit and help block the cold from coming through the ground.
