RedKettle Light Ventile Jacket M16 in use - hunting fallow from high-seat

We were out hunting fallow deer from high-seats one morning. Although not warm, it's definitely getting milder.

Early on a buck came running past. When called he stopped exactly behind two trees and took off again without presenting us any opportunities

Later two does came past and this time we got a clear shot at one of them.

The RedKettle Light Ventile Jacket M16 combined with two layers of wool kept us plenty warm for the three hours of so of stilling still. Perhaps a little too warm.

When extracting deer we removed the 400 gram wool mid layer to stay comfortable.

The morning demonstrated how well layers work when there is a big difference in activity level.
