Lets talk hunting clothing for winter/november deer

ok so i've been wearing the same old camo military jacket that my dad gave me for years.

i'm looking at buying something new. maybe just start with the jacket for now.

we go hunting in wyoming every year in november. we've experienced weather that ranges anywhere form 70 to -20.

my buddy just bought a gortex jacket and bibs. i told him he should look into the wool. he tried the two on and he liked the regular jacket from the get go. he said the wool doesnt feel warm. i told him he would be very surprised that the wool will be better than the "down" type jacket.

my dad wears a wool suit that he's had for like 10 years. he paid a ton of money for it back then but it's really nice and he swears by it.

i was looking at the cabelas line of wool with the weather guard under it and i'm thinking if i were to get a good base layer with the wool it would be warmer and i could remain more mobile.

I would get a scent lock type base layer that you can wear by itself in warm weather or under your heavy clothes in the cold. I prefer coveralls for my outer layer when its cold. Cabelas stuff is top quality and their return policy is great as well you cant go wrong with them.

Down here in C. Texas I hunt in camo shorts and a long sleeved T-shirt.
Out of the last eight years I needed my carhart camo bibs exactly twice until the sun came up - then all was okie dokie.
You do learn to field dress pretty quickly, and not because it's hot.
You have to field dress the deer quick due to the fire ants and feral hogs/dogs/coyotes that come around.
