Back when I trapped, many is the time I had to break ice to get the canoe through and, stop half way through my line to build a fire and warm up.
We used to shoot in conditions like this. This is not my club only a picture I found. If it gets bad now they will close the club. We can still get in as full members and shoot. One time 5 of us shot in a full blizerd with 40mph winds. By the time we left if you didn't have a 4x4 you wernt getting out of the parking lot.

You guys are CRAZY!, ain't no way I'm going out shooting in any of that.Winter is my favorite time of year . I shoot at home mostly , No competitions so it's all just fun working on loads and enjoying the fresh air . I like it above zero , but these long cold winters won't beat me . 3 ounce triggers are tricky on my cold finger so I mostly shoot my guns that have at least a pound of pull.

With a stiff wind blowing most of the morning, it was chilly.Seemor, that's a cold looking day for AL.
It was hard to leave after be snuggled up to the wife for most of the nightBrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, he says from his warm toasty recliner
lol...I just got done telling the boys im gonna bring a tarp and lay it out on the ground and stand next to it and shoot so we dont have to search for shells in the snowThe thought of a heated shooting shack sounds sweet !!!I have thought about building a enclosed shooting bench , closest I have come was making a brass catching /blocking net for my table so didn't have to look for my brass in the grass and weeds . Does not block the wind very good . I move it from rifle distance to pistol distance as needed . My shooting burm is not huge any way . Guess could just put target stands for pistol shots .
You must have picked up that wind hatred from your time spent in Wyoming Sharps. You just never get used to it or like it, you just learn to deal with it.In the past I've fired some muzzleloading matches in some cold and snowy weather.....when 10-15 was the high for the day.
Back before chemo the cold didn't much bother me. It does now. Windy conditions have ALWAYS bothered me....and it doesn't have to be very cold to keep me in if it's windy
