M's Archery Elk: September - Rocky Mountains
Duke Wasteney: Customer Service Rep
Temperatures in Central Idaho during August and September are generally very warm, but the weather can be unpredictable. Hunting long distances from the road requires having a versatile layering system. The Wick Short Sleeve and Boxer Briefs as baselayers are critical for managing body temperature and controlling sweat/stink. I like to use the Fuse Quarter-Zip as a midlayer paired with the Corrugate Guide Jacket and the Guide Lite Touch Gloves to break the early morning chill. The Corrugate Jacket works well as a durable outer shell to protect your merino layers. The Corrugate Guide Pant and the Traverse Gaiter are great options for hiking in steep, debris-choked terrain. To combat the flash rainstorms I always keep the Vapor Rain Jacket and Boundary Stormtight Pants in my pack.
