No matter what your hunting style is or where your hunting area is located, one thing is generally consistent: winter weather. Whether you favor run and gun style tactics or prefer to glass from a vantage point, a solid clothing system can make or break your hunt. With December here, you might still have a late-season hunt left, or if not, this is also the perfect time of year to pick up clothing items for hunts you have coming up down the road.
Building an effective and efficient clothing system not only makes you more comfortable in the mountains but can also drop your pack weight and enable you to stay out longer, increasing your chances of punching a tag. Watch more down below and see how Trail Kreitzer, Chris Neville, and Brady Miller prepare for their late-season hunts.
