On this episode, Adam welcomes John Barklow back to the show to talk about the principles of staying warm, dry, and focused while enduring long sits in cold weather.

Although this episode focuses predominantly on whitetail hunting, the principles covered apply to any form of hunting where cold temperatures and long periods of inactivity — be that in the stand or glassing – are the norm.
