I am new to hunting by stalking and have just been doing it for the past 2 years. Back in south Texas, I was used to hunting in blinds over feeders. Any animal, be it deer, coyote, javelina or hogs were easily transported by my truck, which I could drive to after the kill. But here in WA, it's a whole different type of hunting. This year, actually last weekend, I was successful. I stalked a small herd for about 3 1/2 miles miles in the rolling hills and brush. I shot a deer and field butchered it. I had a frame back pack to carry it out and was ready for the trek back. I didn't realize how difficult it was to carry all that meat for 3 miles in that type of terrain...alone. OK, my question is: what type of lightweight jacket do you receommend for stalking and for mountian use? This time of the year the temperature would range from the high 30's and would get as warm as the mid 60's by the afternoon. Last weekend it was unsually warm at 75. I already have decent lightweight but abrasive proof pants. I was eyeing the Sitka Jestream jacket, but its too costly for $329! If it recommended, I will get.
