When I hunt roe or whitetail, I generally wear wool, extremely quiet and works well. However it gets heavy when wet and not that good if you need to be moving. I have hiked and ice climbed in the fall and winter in the Highlands, but have never stalked.
I plan to use soft shells similar to those military web-tex jackets, but they are a little noisy when moving. Is that going to be a problem, or are the wind and rain going to mask the noise? I am probably over-analysing, but if you have a thought, it would be great to hear. I am trying to avoid paying big bucks for the fancy gear.
