Drew a TPWD hunt on the Cross Bar ranch north of Amarillo. Rough country, no blinds and you have to pack your deer to the road. No ATVs Allowed. By rule you must stay on the ranch the entire hunt because they lock the gates behind you and then escort you out 3 days later. Looking at this forecast and knowing there will be a lot of snow on the ground I'm leaning toward whimping out. Your thoughts? Decent bucks been spotted there.

Hunt or not?
Only one choice allowed

Sounds like an adventure. Why would you want to miss that?

Great opportunity to learn to build a little igloo shelter.

If you have the right gear and clothing go for it.

I'd go for it. I would however pack my bolt cutters. I don't like the thought of being locked in under those conditions.

I would pack my best gear, extra diesel, and go for it.

But, Dave, you're old. I would hate to have to drive up there just to look for a Dave Popsicle.

This reminds me of my girlfriends daughter that whines after being in the blind for three hours. I told her she has to go hunt on my land in Wisconsin one winter where it's 20 below windchill, you are 15 ft up in the air in a stand, no blind, no cover, just leaned against a tree from an hour before sunrise till sunset. Suck it up and go on the hunt

As others have said. If you have the right equipment then go for it. But if your winter gear is for south Texas, then yes, you can be a little sissy. I was going to use another word, but most likely would have gotten censored.

Good to know you'd head up the search party. I got cold weather gear and have hunted frozen conditions. Just never had any success under those conditions.

Game will be much easier to spot the first clear day you have with snow cover. Take a couple of pair of hiking boots and get after it.

If I had clothing and equipment for that kind of weather, I would go. I would be furious if I stayed home and got reports back on how good the hunting was.
