Default Staying Warm Tip From a Thin Blooded Duck Hunter

I'm not big on spin off threads, but the "breakfast" thread made me think of a good point I thought I would share with everyone... granted its 91 degrees outside here in Central VA at 8pm... but give it a try this winter.

A few older guys (80+) I duck hunt with have given up on thermoses of coffee for keeping warm on miserable days in the blind (if there is such a thing as a miserable duck day). They carry instead heated thermoses of BEEF BROTH (Swanson or Campbells). The thought of which almost made me gag until I tried it myself. Honestly, there is something about beef bullion that warms you right through your bones, and it actually has nutritional value and doesn't make you pee a whole lot (which is helpful when you have 3 layers on under waders and are in waste deep water... or 20 feet up a tree).

It even got Rebecca's seal of approval, and that poor girl is always freezing cold. Give it a try, I'm a convert!

Another tip is to keep your jugular(sp) vanes warm. If you pump warm blood through your body, it will warm you up. Same works with cold. stick an ice cube on them once, you'll feel the differance.

I guess thats why I can stay so warm with a heat pad stick on on my spine and a neck gaiter on... don't even hardly need a jacket sometimes!
