What type / brand of deer hunting clothing??

7 posts in this topic

I was just curious as to what type / brand of blaze orange deer hunting clothing everyone is wearing. I am using Cabelas Versalon as of now, but the pockets are too small and the jacket is pretty heavy. I am looking for a parka type jacket with BIG pockets that is warm, quiet, weather resistant and not too heavy. I wear bibs underneath. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I got the cabelas Dry Plus 4-in-1 parka and am very happy with. I think it is light weight, but yet the warmest blaze hunting coat I have ever owned. If I want to pack light, the pockets are big enough to hold my range finder, binoculars, bottle of water, grunt call, can call, extra shells, and a knife and some rope.

i have the cabelas revolution fleece. Insulated jacket, Uninsulated pants. They are awesome. I wear an orange vest over the jacket or I wear a parka shell only when Im sitting and its below 20 degrees.

I dress in layers fleece and wool and then put a thin orange fleece jacket on last with nice pockets, this way if it is warm out or I am doing a lot of walking I can take layers off and wear the thinner orange coat. I have buddy's that buy under armor this and under armor that and real expensive jackets and it's funny how they get cold and I never do. I tell them to buy wool and dress in layers, but I guess they worry about "looks" out in the woods. I wear wool pants as well, they are warm, silent and durable.

Sure is funny, I wear Under ARMOR And never get cold it's my first layer of defense.

I also use Cabela's E.C.W.C.S. was designed specifically for the U.S. Marines and special forces.

Wool absorbs water (and lots of it!) up to 50% which makes it Heavy!

& Bulky & takes for ever to dry.

Great for sitting but not for walking!

Under armour is the shiznit!! Stuff really works good. As far as a parka I just bought One from Gander Mountain, it is their most expensive one got it for half price! Really soft and quiet fleece outer and thinsulate insulation as well as their H2O tech water/wind proof. Good pockets on the outside and two inside. They always put all their blaze on sale opening day since I hunt in WI I went their and picked up a 300$ suit bibs/parka for 150$

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
