Saddle hunters, how do you keep from sweating with layers?

I’m a heavy sweater. When it’s a little warmer I don’t really care if I sweat as much because I won’t get THAT cold... but when it’s November and pretty dang cold out there, how the heck do you manage the climbing and getting set up with your layers on without sweating like crazy?

Put your layers on after. I can easily loosen my waist strap a bit and put my jacket or other top layers on in the tree then tuck in if needed. I also put my jacket on over the top of my saddle with no issues down to the bridge without tucking in.

Go slow

One nice thing about using a saddle is that you can put on your upper body layers (jacket) when you reach hunting height.

Colder days: wearing under gear and outer gear while climbing up the tree. (Long underwear bottoms and bibs are on). Upper body is only covered by a light base layer. Put on sweatshirt and then jacket when fully clipped in and on the platform/ring of steps.

No sponsors. No camera crew. No team. Just me and my bow. And that’s the way I prefer it.

I'm the same way. I strap heavier weight clothes onto my platform/sticks and dress at the stand.
