        Well there's your problem - you're supposed to pluck the birds before wearing the down!

          I like Onyx Arctic Shield clothing when it gets really cold. It's not breathable, so you have to be careful moving around or you'll get sweaty, but it's super warm. When I'm going to be moving around a lot, I use several lighter layers. I use fleece or wool for the bottom layers, and regular uninsulated camo for the outer ones.

            Thank you for adding some levity to this dismal Monday morning.
            Great picture.

              I'm actually debating building a wooden elevated blind by one of my favorite spots and running electricity to it so that I can hook up a heater for when the young kids(or me...we all have those days) can hunt without dealing with the cold/wind/rain. I love wool and layers. I'm generally moving or walking long distances to hunt, so I need the layers. This means a base layer made of wool(I like the cabelas brand ones I have the best), and multiple more thin layers on top of that. I hate the feeling of big gloves, so I usually opt for a more flexible pair and some hand warmers in my pockets. As for socks I go with wool. Usually bring a backpack along with a wool blanket tied to the top of it, and an extra pair of socks. Always leave room to store any shed layers. If it is real windy I'll even bring a scarf since my neck is usually the first thing that gets cold if exposed.

                I think one of your dogs still needs to learn which end to point at the camera . With that many goose what do you generally do with them? Sausage?

                    What? That you hunt in MO, that's down south where it warm. Sounds like over kill to me.

                      Wool. Not only does it reflect less light back to the game's eye it's warm, water/wind resistant and spans the temperatures.

                        @charlie,
                        I hunt all over the country . Thats the only time I've seen "real cold." I've hunted in temperatures in the negatives here in Missouri without factoring in wind chill, but that is rare. Here in Missouri it has been really warm this year. Usually a base layer and a pair of good pants/a coat is all I needed.

                          Entirely different set of dogs in the two photos. The butt shot is this fall with two limits shot by myself and my daughter's boyfriend. Opal is the "old" dog to my right. My new Lab pup Ellie is on right. The other photo is my late Pearl with her last load of geese in October 2014. You can see patches missing from both her front legs from transfusions at U of M vet hospital in St. Paul. She water retrieved all but one of ten honkers (Opal brought it in) plus the single snow. They were all shot from one flock. She even brought in two honkers at once on second retrieve. An amazing dog. Anyone from F&S knows about her. She's been gone almost a year now.

                            Well that explains it. I was wondering how anyone in MO knew about base layers and layering. Hope you continue to enjoy your hunts in the real cold world.

                              Dam it sucks to lose a dog. But the memories are a memorial to there life and we're the richer for our time with them.
