I knew I may be in for a long sit and would need to be patient, so I opted to hunt from a ground blind. The weather was fair, with chilly 40-degree mornings giving way to sunny, 70-degree afternoons. The significant temperature swing, along with my decision to hunt in a blind heavily impacted my choice of apparel.

The rut was just starting to heat up and bucks were cruising. Like so many of my hunts during the rut, I was planning to sit all day. It was one of the first colder days of the season; temperatures were in the low thirties, but it was supposed to warm up a bit in the afternoon.
