Hey guys and gals, after spending several hundred dollars on ultra warm hunting pants and jackets, do you ever wear them in the off season? For example, it -20* outside and you go out to shovel snow...do you wear your hunting jacket that's warmer than your regular winter attire, knowing you'll transfer your scent to it (Luke cologne, deodorant, or body soap) then wash it in a good scent free detergent before hunting in it.

Sorry for the stupid newb question but I'm just curious

For the most part, no. My hunting clothes are just that.....hunting clothes. The two things I may wear to shovel snow are my blaze orange mittens and orange knit cap if it's snowing or windy. Other than that, blaze orange and camo are not part of my wardrobe.

Yes, I do if its really cold out because I have to walk a long way from where I park my car to the school campus. I'm sure most people wouldn't since they worry about smell but I've never had any problems.

nope, when hunting season is over they get washed and put in a big plastic container until hunting season opens again

I don't wear them for anything other than hunting purely for the fact that I'll get longer life out of them.

Nope, they're called hunting clothes for a reason.

Long undies, yes. Outerwear, no. Generally, No camo or blaze wearing unless I'm hunting although I do have an old pair of camo coveralls I wear on the atv to plow snow in.

No, my hunting clothes only go into the woods during a hunt. I have plenty of other clothes to wear even if the weather gets cold and nasty out. My hunting clothing is too expensive and I'm to anal about controlling human odors that once laundered in scent free wash and dried w/ dirt scented dryer sheets, everything goes into a "huge" ziplok bag and then into my big plastic totes and stored in my cedar lined closet in the extra bedroom. I don't even put on my outer layers until I get into the woods.
