Not a fan of hunting in the rain, but if I have the day off, and it is raining, I will likely be hunting... Talking to other members of my club, I was surprised at how few take any "extra" steps while in the rain outside of wearing a rain jacket. I use a garbage bag to put my blind bag in, and that plastic bag stays on my gear bag for the walk in/out, and in the blind itself to keep things dry. Currently, I pull my bag out in a tub (Jr. JetSled), and it stays wrapped in the garbage bag the whole time. Shells all get put in zip-lock bags. Gun gets carried out to the blind in a thin "mud-case" to avoid getting saturated with water. Extra (water-proof) hat goes in the blind bag, so when the wind blows off my hat, I have a spare. Extra lens wipes for my glasses My father cuts a garbage bag in half, and keeps it over his gun like a gun-pancho in the blind... Pulls it when he shoots... I find it too much of a pain, and it often ends up in the pond anyways. Extra dry clothes in the truck to change into What are some of your tricks to reduce gear damage, clean-up time, or to remain more comfortable???
