Obviously too late for this post, but for the rest of folks...
I live and hunt in North Dakota, and I and my German Shorty hunt even when it's 10 below...Here is what I wear:
Under my bird jacket, I wear one good coat (I sprang for the Filson w/ the wool liner), one long sleeve shirt, and a t-shirt.
I just wear long johns under my brush pants, and here is the key...
Wear the thinnest wool socks you can (again, I use Filson light weights) and just my normal issue water resistant hunting boots. With all the walking, I don't want big thick socks where the air can not circulate, and make my feet feel stuffy. And just good huntin' boots.

I prefer thinner gloves so I can load/reload/work the safety, grab my whistle, etc. Yeah my fingers get cold for the first 20 minutes, but after that (or you gwt into the birds!) I don't notice it...the blood is going by then.

Oh, the other key...have a neck gator or balaclava to block the wind around your neck.
As for the face...well, it just gets cold. And use a plastic whistle if it's below freezing :shock:

Mark, the Underarmor is hard to beat too, I just haven't ponied up the Aggie Bucks for it yet. My long johns and good longsleeve shirt will do for now.
Fortunately my AF-issue boots work great...they are desert issue with minimum insulation, and while they get wet on the outside, I stay toasty on the inside, and I just dry em out overnight.

What do you shoot? I have a Beretta 391 auto 12 ga, but right now I love my Citori. I have a 1932 Superposed getting redone, should be back next month. It only weighs 6 3/4 lbs.

It's negative 8 up here right now.

And that's Class of 91. You?

Awesome! I want to get a straight stock A-5 or Superposed someday. Never heard of Kent, I'll have to try it.

Well, thank God they did finally let women in! Makes class much more entertaining.

I was in Sq 6 (Savage Six), Centerpole Pot and Fish Drill Team.
I don't know where or who I'd be without A&M. And what a great Network...the best.

How's the Oil Bidness these days in Midland? Purty good I bet.
