Cold weather survival information is a must if you use a cabin for hunting in a harsh winter. You can help yourself by using military surplus gear and supplies, but you still need to know the score. Some mistakes you might make on the trail can be costly.

  • Do not start your trip without getting cold weather clothing for winter survival. You can choose field jackets, parkas, Gortex clothing items or thermal underwear. Check that the military surplus garments fit you well before you leave for your hunting trip.
  • Never leave the cabin without a supply of MRE packets, just in case of an unexpected snowstorm. They are lightweight and easy to carry. You will keep yourself nourished with the convenient food. You will also raise your core body temperature as you burn the energy.
  • Do not leave your hunting knife unsheathed when you are not using it. Hypothermia has been proven to increase the loss of blood. If you cut yourself, especially in this careless fashion, you will pay the price through excessive blood loss.
  • Avoid sticking gear in your pockets if you have another carrying device. A tool or utility belt works well to keep everything in one central location. Then, you will not have to worry about losing a flashlight or dropping your binoculars when you bend over.
  • Never get caught without some way to cover up if you have to wait out a storm. A simple military surplus emergency survival sleeping bag will help keep you warm and dry. These bags come in small lightweight packages, about half the size of a football.
  • Be careful not to run out of water. You can use hydration packs or a simple canteen and canteen cup. The important thing to remember is that, even in a landscape of snow, you may not have any readily drinkable water. Even if you want to melt snow for water, you need a container for it.
  • Avoid going on the trail without some kind of medical supplies. You can get anything from a simple first aid kit to a full-fledged medical or surgical kit. Learn how to use it before you go out. It is not easy to work with unfamiliar supplies when you are fumbling in the cold.
  • Never leave your cabin without some source of artificial light, even if you think you will only be gone during the day. Something could happen that would keep you away from your cabin. You would need a flashlight, a lantern or at least glow sticks to let others know where you are and to see what you are doing.
