Base layers are key for cold-weather hunting, as they allow you to regulate your body temperature throughout a cold day of hunting.
While everyone has that one super heavy hunting jacket you should also carefully consider what other clothing you wear for cold weather hunting. To ensure you are ready, and to avoid overheating, check out these tips for base layers.
This is some sound advice for ensuring you do not overheat during a walk-in to your hunting spots. Good base layers with an ability to wick away moisture are key to ensure you don’t lose precious body heat once you start a hunt.
One thing I learned in the infantry is to always start off your move in with very light layers when carrying a load. Start cold because you will surely start heating up during a hard walk-in. This is where layers are key, keep your heavier outerwear in your pack and once you get to where you are going, then put them on. This avoids a huge sweat build-up that will rob you of body heat once you stop and begin to cool down.
