October Mule Deer hunting in the Rockies is the very definition of variable. Variable weather, variable terrain, and variable hunting trip length. During the second half of October, I'll see everything from sunshine and sixty degree temperatures to snow squalls, high winds and temperatures down in the teens. Being prepared for it all can be quite a challenge but having the right options at your disposal keeps you in the game, regardless of the conditions. I usually do a multi-day trip during mule deer season as well as a handful of half day trips, so my kit reflects that. Start with Wick 150 Aerowool boxers and/or boot tops, and Kiln 250 Merino-X base layers and accessories. Layer in some packable Cirrus insulation and wrap it all up during bad weather with a Catalyst System, and you're going to be comfortable and effective. I also pack a Chamberlin Down Jacket on overnights as the end-all for those bitter cold nights and mornings on the ridge. I choose an Aerowool Liner Glove / Shale Hybrid Glove system for my hands, Mountain Athlete Triad Socks for my feet (one extra pair in my pack) and I carry both a trucker hat and a Tag Cuff as well. If I'm going on a day trip, I'll either take the Catalyst Pants or Corrugate Guide Pants depending on the forecast.
