Ive used the Sitka Stormfront jacket to stay warm while glassing or around camp. Cant say enough good things about the jacket. Waterproof as well. It runs a bit small though if you are layering. I paired that with UA cold gear baselayers and the Sitka / First lite puff vest. Works great for layering when on the move.

So...not sure if you got your answer yet...however...In order to even submit for the archery tag...you had to submit your archery/bow certificate # when you applied for the general license/sportsman license and then the permit.  The general license allows you to hunt...the permit allows you to hunt in a specific area.  You should have gotten yours in the mail however if you did not...go to FWP on your computer and log in and then you can print your Montana license/permit.  Archery season begins on Sep 4th and ends on Oct 17th.  Depending on the area that you drew...it tell you whether you can take a shot (bow) at a brow tine/spike or cow.  Good luck Brother!

I use axis hybrid from Kuiu.  Very comparable to timberlines.  Also guide jacket with layering.  No matter what outer layers you choose, I would recommend removable  puffy pants and hooded puffy for glassing.  Also mittens over the top.  For these I just went with some knock off Amazon stuff, as long as it fits in the pack.

The Timberline's are excellent late season pants. If you're looking at Sitka, the Jetstream jacket is fantastic for later season as well. It's not as bulky as many jackets I've used, but it seems to be just as warm. I actually got it in a solid color so I can not only use it while hunting, but during the rest of winter as well. It makes spending that much on a jacket not hurt so bad  :-D

As far as layers go, there are a number of options out there. I've been using Under Armour for years and am still happy with it, but if you go that route you'll want to have multiple sets as they can get stinky, but they wick sweat really well. If you want a base layer you can wear daily that won't stink but doesn't wick as well, look into merino wool.

Hey there!

I'm looking to pick up a few pieces of gear for my late season hunts coming up this fall in Colorado. I've done most of my western hunting over the last few years in September and have run some pretty light layers from First Lite (Corrugate pants, wick baselayers, klamath hoody, uncompraghe puffy); that's really all I've needed.

This year, as I'll be hunting into the frigid days of late November in CO, I've been looking at some colder weather gear. I've heard great things about the Timberline pants from Sitka as a solid option to get through October/November. Any suggestions on a jacket from either Sitka, KUIU, or First Lite (or anyone else I guess) to pair with the Timberline pants and some good base-layers for those cold, snowy hunts?

Anyone out there familiar with these units?  I live in Alaska and won't be able to spend a lot of time scouting before the season opens on August 25.  Could use any and all the help you can give me.

Hello everybody,

My father was lucky enough to draw a Oct 1st rifle hunt this year in Idaho. I am just reaching out as I am doing some E-scouting to see if anyone would be willing to maybe just give me some general info on the unit. Seems like a heck of a draw, but its going to take a whole lot of diving into. We got into elk hunting last year and for the first time we successfully called in a few bulls over our archery hunt last year. I would assume the elk tend to be more concentrated in the roadless wilderness area during this time. I also can imagine everything will be pretty dang high with the weather we are experiencing. Anyone thank you to anyone that is willing to help and good luck to all this season. Stay safe and enjoy the elk woods!
Hunting Gear / 1 Person Tent

I am looking to invest in a light 1 person tent. I have been leaning towards the KUIU Summit Star because of pack-ability and weight. I mostly hunt Colorado in September and October.

Did you end up going with the First Lite? I am looking at it as well.
