    Call it what you want, but..............

    There is only one and original "Frozen Butt Hang". If you would like feel free to call your's..... Siberian butt, algid butt, arctic butt, below freezingbutt, below zero butt , benumbed butt, biting butt, bitter butt, blasting butt, bleak butt, boreal butt, brisk butt, brumal butt, chill butt, chilled butt, cool butt, crisp butt, cutting butt, frigid butt, frore butt, frosty butt, gelid butt, glacial butt, have goose bumps butt, hawkish butt, hiemal butt, hyperborean butt, icebox butt, iced butt, icy butt, inclement butt, intense butt, keen butt, nipping butt, nippy butt, numbed butt, numbing butt, one-dog night butt, penetrating butt, piercing butt, polar butt, raw butt, rimy butt, severe butt, sharp butt, shivery butt, sleety butt, snappy butt, snowy butt, stinging butt, two-dog night butt, wintry butt, etc. But do not presume that it is close or comparable to the original "Frozen Butt". We freeze alone here and are proud of it!!!!!!!!!We welcome others to freeze their butts off w/us and thus the reason people keep coming back for our harsh treatment. And, if you can post a four day hang average temp. below the original " Minnesota Frozen Butt Hang", we will concede to allowing you to use the term Frozen Butt.I hope all who read take this seriously............

    It is true that we own that title and we wear it proud.

    But, watch some Alaskans or Canadians come forward and make our hang look like a summer day.

    I don't know, i think the SKAHO guys might give you a run for your thermals this year if they get a hang together. After all they do hang above the Arctic Circle.


    Me I'll keep my Southern born and bred butt down here in the warmth, even if we have been below freezing the past few nights.

    So what is the average? Just curious, don't need or want to compete any more in that kind of cold but have been out in the past (pre-hammock days gone by) at -20 was a lot of work but manageable.

    I thought I heard/read somewhere that the Turk do around -30F before? Or was that just some sort of dream/nightmare?
