    not truly, but they will stay bedded during extreme cold or bad weather & feed ravenously during a warm spell. keep in mind these are relative terms so if 20 degrees is warm night for your area & below zero is your extreme those are the temps that'll affect them.

    They semi-hibernate. I've hunted coon in winter on nights above 30 degrees. They usually stick close to home except in February, their breeding season.
