    I stopped shooting in the winter - oh, maybe a round of clays once or twice in the winter. Maybe a meat shoot or some practice if the temp is 50 and the wind is not howling. I found winter shooting did nothing to help me in the spring, and maybe made things worse. I always knew it wasn't fun for me - I finally got smart enough to just say no.

    Cold and miserable here in the Northeast. Someone needs to invent a way to have indoor trap shooting. Quite a few old, large, barns around here...

    I shoot twice a week regardless of -20 temps/snow/or wind. Rain is a different element. Put on your Carharts and bring out your "hot" loads ! Amazing how -20 wind chill affects a flinch.......BRRRRRRRRRRR. I HATE WINTER.

    I don't care how cold it gets in Minnesota, Michigan, Montana or even North Dakota, I don't let it bother me. I shoot a couple of times each week.

    The only thing you do winter shooting is pick up bad habits,it takes all spring to get away from them. So, the only practice I do in the winter is my Terry Jorden's wall chart. Works for me.

    I tend to agree with trapshootingfran. I do pick up bad habits. Thicker clothes, gun too long, gloves etc. I do start serious practice in the spring.
