The Rut - Southeast

FORD VAN FOSSAN: Conservation and Content Manager

Though Maryland’s winters are comparably warm, snow is not unheard of and the humid cold can certainly creep in after hours on the stand. Therefore, for late-season whitetails hunts in the Southeast, I focus on creating a solid core of merino layers and sealing them off with breathable, insulated outerwear. I typically start off with the flexible Fuse Crew under Kiln Hoody. For colder days, I will add in the Sawtooth vest for added insulation. The Sanctuary jacket completes my kit and provides the bulk of my insulation. Below the belt, I rock the Furnace Long John and the Catalyst Pant. A set of talus gloves and Brimmed Beanie round off my kit for the late season south of the Mason-Dixon line.
