    Default Predator hunting clothes

    So what is the must have camo gear for sitting in the snow for an hour at a time waiting on Mr fox/yote/wolf/lynx to show up? I have insulated sled gear which is warm but sounds like I am dragging 50 feet of chain link fencing along a road paved with chalkboards.

    I just have overwhites. Nothing fancy, just white.

    My "overwhite" is a white bedsheet with a hole cut in it like a poncho.

    LuJon,
    I absolutely love my MadDog gear, their hydro fleece. Its not the most expensive stuff around but I stay warm, its quiet, and if I need white, well, There's always a sheet! (we're cheap too!)

    I have some of the whites mixed with mossy oak break up from sportsman's. The tag says Wildfowler Outfitter, 952-368-3400, Concealment Specialists. My son and I both have a pair that we got big enough to fit over our carrharts, Thin, silent, full leg zippers and buttons. I also have about 7 packs of disposable Tyvex white coveralls that I bought from a paint store. They are about five bucks each. Got those to fit over carrharts also just in case we use them during calling when we aren't planning on being backed up by trees. Small package and keep them under the seat. The main reason I bought those and keep them in the truck during late season bear is because 2 years ago we went to our bear spot and got a caught unprepared. Drove there and found out half way up the hill everything was white. So we stuck out bad once we made it to mid hill. Two Mossy oaked spots, slipping around on the covered grass and other low vegetation, covering the completely brushless white sides of the hill didn't quite work out. I'm sure I did other stuff wrong too, but I'm blaming it all on the clothes.
    About $45 or $50 each for the tops and bottoms from Sportsmans.
    Only pic I could find from the web site huntstuff.com. Cabelas has a picture also but the snow version picture showed up way too small so I didn't post it.

    Default Snow camo

    I use the Naked North print from Game hide. This print blends very well with alder trees, and is pretty much impossible to see while sitting in shadow. I got them at the sportsmans warehouse bottoms for around $16 and top for $18 I think. They are just cover ups. I too have very loud coat, but when I put these over the top I'm quiet as a mouse!! I'm very happy with them for the money!! You can see the print in my avatar pic or go to my profile and look at my pics on there.

    Default Natural Gear

    I've got the Natural Gear Parka and Bibs. They are very warm and they have well placed pockets in both. They only bummer part is my girlfriend loved them so much she ordered them from cabela's and they stopped making the parka. They blend in so well with all the willow underbrush that the snow sticks to and area very quiet. AWSOME!!! heres a pic of the camo but the cover-up jacket.

    Default Cabelas One Piece

    LuJon,
    I have several different snow camo outfits and my hands down favorite is an older Cabela's one piece snowcamo suit. I can't find them anymore on their site and I believe they quit making them. They're insulated and have large pockets for calls, remotes, ammo..etc.. If you can't find one of those, any overwhite would work. I've checked out the Natural Gear stuff and it looks nice, but I already had the Cabela's suit. Also, make sure to get one of those insulated seats to use, they work wonders and keep your rear toasty warm. If you're going to be sitting for an hour, get some of the mitt/gloves that have the built in handwarmer pack pockets too. Other then that, Bunny boots and some warm layers depending on the temperatures.

    I use the seclusion 3-D winter camo cover suit from cabelas. Up on the slope I can pretty much sit down whereever I want and look like a patch of tundra that isn't completely covered in snow. And here in the interior I can sit just about anywhere and blend in with the alders or the underbrush. I like it because it blends in well just about everywhere when there is snow on the ground and it just slips over whatever winter gear I have on.

    Default Here's mine

    The idea comes from my 'turkey vest.' Joann fabric sells the foam pad for about $7.50, a zipper for about $3 i think, a little white nylon fabric, a couple of left over straps, some velcro, and about two hours sitting at a sewing machine.






    It zips on at the bottom hem of the jacket (a NaturalGear insulated parka.) I think the rest is self-explanatory. The NaturalGear insulated gear is way warmer than I expected. I bought it from Bass-Pro at about $50/each piece. I haven't used this setup yet in extreme cold, but with a long-john layer underneath it's cozy at 8 degrees. With a few layers, it should be good for extreme cold. Oh - one more 'plus' it's absolutely 100% waterproof (not sweat-proof.)

    Default I go Cheap

    I think I paid 8 bucks for this outfit and the full face beanie was $10. I use painters clothes. I got the largest I could find and they cover all my other warm clothes. Made just a few alterations. Works for me.

    Since most of my preditor hunting is above treeline I like white. Don't want to look like a bush moving around. With white and the least amount of blowing snow you can't be seen, even when moving.

    Default snow camo

    Buddy went to Wallyworld and got 3 yards of white fleece. Sat down and wrapped it around. Bagged a wolf within a half hour.

    I wear my homemade fur parka. When I hunker down the critters just think I am just another animal out there in the woods. It keeps me warm too!

    Default Natural Gear

    +1

    I use it and like it for use here in southcentral. It's warmer than I expected and the only things I don't like are the hood drawstring (should be positioned at the chin) and the hood! I wish they made a pullover hat in the same pattern. The hood screws up my hearing.
    Overall I'm satisfied. The chest pocket on the jacket could be a little bigger, and I wish all the pockets zipped DOWN instead of up.

    I have a German NATO snow camo poncho. Our snow out here in Aleutian Hell is so sporadic that I haven't been able to justify buying snow camo gear. Most of the time ASAT is the best choice.
    Now what ?

    I used a tyvec hooded suit from Sherwin Williams. Looks like a marshmallow. If $$ were no object I'd go for this
