EP. 302: Llamas, Whitetails, Elk, and Mule Deer | New Gear & layering System

Today I’m joined by my good buddy Chris Derrick. Today we’re talking about filing his recent elk tag, close calls with a few mule deer, and his travel whitetail plans. We also dive into the new gear Sitka has recently released that you’ll want to check out. And I share a little about my layering system and how I stay bulk free, lightweight and warm with only a handful of pieces of kit for the full season. As always – thanks for listening!
