How to Layer for Hunting
Base layer – Start with a moisture-wicking base layer. The fabric wicks sweat away from the body, keeping you dry and ultimately warm. Thermal underwear is a great base layer for hunting.
Middle layer – Your middle layer should consist of a camouflage long sleeve shirt or sweatshirt. A fleece is another great option. It’s lightweight and breathable, but can still be worn as an outer layer if the weather is warm enough.
Outer layer – Camo or blaze orange hunting jackets come next. If you’re looking to keep your legs warm and dry, layer up with hunting bibs or coveralls. When you’re looking at hunting jackets, you need to choose the appropriate color. Blaze orange jackets are perfect for deer hunting; camo jackets can be worn, too, but with a blaze orange safety vest. Camo jackets can be worn for waterfowl hunting without any blaze orange.
Hunting Hats – Not only does a hunting hat keep your head warm, it can keep you safe, too. Most states require that at least 50 percent of your hunting hat is blaze orange.
Hunting Gloves – Hunting gloves can come with all sorts of features, such as palm grips and spandex trigger fingers. Plus, they’ll keep your hands nice and toasty while you’re waiting in the woods.
Hunting Socks – Hunting socks have a few purposes. Obviously they can keep your feet warm and dry inside your hunting boots. Some hunting socks come with scent elimination technology, perfect for helping you hide from your prey.
Hunting Boots – Hunting boots are meant to keep your feet warm and dry while trudging through varying terrain. Choose hunting boots that are made of rubber or waterproof material.
Things to Keep in Mind
When it comes to choosing your hunting clothes, it may get a bit overwhelming. Remember to check the forecast of where you’ll be hunting. Bring rain gear if you think you’ll need it. It’s also important to know your terrain when you’re choosing camouflage. Look for camouflage patterns that match the terrain. Before and after you go hunting, wash your hunting clothes in scent eliminating detergent. It will help you stay more hidden from your prey. While clothing isn’t everything when it comes to being a successful hunter, the right ones can help your chances of bagging big game.
