    I'm sure someone wants to wear deer fur on their body to stay warm in deer season. lol The guy wants to stay warm, he's not suicidal. There's also nothing like getting hit between the should blades with a large lead projectile from some inexperienced hunter in the woods.

    For bow hunting, a battery powered jacket is a must!! Allows you to not get to bulky and still be able to shoot. Bought my wife one first then I had to get one!!

    Uh no, I would NEVER under any circumstance wear, let my kids wear, or suggest others to wear any kind of animal fur on your head, shoulders, arms or anywhere else even with hunter orange on. That's just something you don't do. Now, if you want to wear anywhere else then I would think thats fine but not during any type of gun season.

    I have some wool pants and a jacket from Columbia that work well. They are too warm for anything warmer than the low 20s. As said by others layering is the key. Bladefoot

    SEVERAL MANUFACTURES OF BATTERY HEATED JACKETS, GLOVES AND BOOT LINERS. MILWAUKEE MAKES A GOOD HEATED JACKET THAT I HAVE USED AND IT WORKS GOOD. WARM WITHOUT BULK. REMEMBER TO TAKE A SPARE BATTERY. BATTERYS ARE RECHARGABLE

    Just tried to order the too good to be true deal on Cabela’s MTO5O parka from their website. Even though the site lists it as in stock, turns out they were sold out. Buyer beware.

    I ordered the Cabela's 10 point parka and bibs a few days ago. Everything showed as in stock, but the parka sold out and I only received the bibs. Now I have bibs and can't find a parka in the same camo pattern to go with them. Sucks.

    We went to the store in Lexington today and the girl at the return counter ordered the parka for me and I got an email just now saying it’s on the way. Maybe they have more pull that way. She was a manager.

    Cabela’s makes some good stand sitting outer wear suits, but yes they are bulky. Bulk is no issue in the stand for me. Extreme Berber fleece bibs and parka is what used last few years. I layer under with merino or UA. Use a good hat or balaclava. Liner wicking two layers of socks in Woody max muck boots and I’m happy in late season.

    Key for me is full fleece suit, I demand zero noise in late season bow hunting.
