How cold is too cold

Im from East TN and i know in nights when it gets down to 15-20 degrees you might as well stay at the house unless its been that way for a while because the coon will be denned up. Im thinking about heading to Illinois around the first of December and Im just wondering what you guys that hunt up that way consider two cold for the coon to be moving. Obviously theyre used to colder weather up that way.

Honestly, it will depend on what part of IL. You're gonna be in.. Huge difference in weather patterns from the North to South in IL in the first of December....

About the same

I live in east central IL. Same rule as yours applies here for me. I haven't had many good nights under 20 degrees. If it has been around zero for a few days and warms up to 20, then it might be worth turning loose.

25 degrees is alright most of the time.

Temp.

If its central Il. its more about how long the weather has been in that temperature range. I don't like turning loose below 15 degrees but that's just me. Also lots of other contributing factors.

There are coon moving somewhere, no matter what the weather is doing. Just have to have a dog to go find them.

Went to a Nite hunt on a dare, it was -11. Guide said we'll hunt cow fields. Said coon will dig through cow Patty's to get corn not digested. We treed 3!!!. Went once at 2, chill factor was -16, Treed a big boar. Dogs went almost a mile. Damon Shivers is crazy like me. He dared me to come hunt during a level 3 snow storm. We treed in a big den after a 600 yard race. We call it the "Dan and Damon" adventures. They will move if hungry or breeding.

Absolutely the way I have found it to be for the last 40 yrs. Always one moving somewhere every night if the right dog is looking.
