Hunting later in the deer season can be hard when the temperatures start to drop. The colder it is, the harder it can be to hunt for longer periods of time. We all know the more time you spend in the stand, the more likely you are to have an opportunity to get that big buck you’ve been after. Here are some great options for staying longer and warmer in your deer stand.
Heated Base Layers
These Mobile Warming heated base layers are great for hunting. They have 4 different heat settings and Bluetooth so you can control the heat levels or check the battery life right on your cell phone. These heated base layers will keep you warm in the deer stand for hours.
Sitka Fanatic or Incinerator Aerolite Clothing
Sitka is known for their high quality hunting clothing and have hit the nail on the head with their cold weather hunting options. Our favorites are the Fanatic line and the Incinerator line.
Sitka's Fanatic line of hunting clothing combines Berber fleece and GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ with WINDSTOPPER® Technology for the quietest and warmest hunting clothes on the market.
Sitka’s Incinerator Aerolite line is the perfect clothing for those cold and wet days when you’d usually opt out. Incinerator Aerolite bibs and jacket feature upgraded synthetic insulation that uses trapped air to replicate the warmth of and compressibility of down. Both of these options will keep you toasty during your hunting trips.
Cold toes can be the end of a good hunt, heated socks are a game changer. There’s nothing extra to carry and you can turn them on if you need them! Just like the base layers these socks can be controlled by Bluetooth on your cell phone or by just pushing the button of the battery.
A hand muff is a great option for those who want to keep their hands warm without having to deal with the hassle of gloves while bowhunting. This hand muff buckles around your waist so all you have to do is place your hands inside while you wait for the deer to come your way. No hassle of fumbling with gloves or the concern that your shots may be a little off because the gloves have slightly changed your anchor point.
The Sitka Incinerator muff is our favorite for wind protection and warmth.
