Yaak weather during big game season

The weather here in Yaak, Montana in mid-October and November is beginning to cool down. Daytime temperatures are likely to be in the 50’s with nights in the low 30’s. As the season progresses, the temps drop and it is not uncommon to see snow by the end of the hunt. It’s best to start the day by layering your clothing. Chamois shirt and fleece coat or vest is often the standard morning wear. Throughout the day, just a chamois shirt (or comparable item) usually suffices. Nights are cool and long sleeve shirts and fleece jackets work well. Hats and gloves are likely needed.
