We have a saying in Alaska: Cotton kills. If you're hunting in cold weather avoid cotton long johns, jeans, socks and sweats. That stuff gets wet and stays wet. Throw in getting turned around (lost) on the way back to the boat and you're down the path to hypothermia. Fleece or wool is the way to go, and its quieter too. Be sure to bring a basic survival kit, which for me consists mainly of fire-starting stuff. I agree with the others about the fancy-shmancy, high-falootin gear. Deer can't smell you if you're downwind no matter how bad you smell. There's also a lot of ways to deodorize your clothes and self to minimize spreading your scent around. Good luck!
