Stay in the truck until it quits raining.

DSG...........My gosh man, how can you stand wearing one of those "Hefty Bag" rainsuits every day of the season???????

Unless it is lighting I hunt. Cool damp days are some of the best to be had. I have a GOOD, packable rainsuit that stays in the truck everyday of the season. On days there is a chance of rain it goes with me in a back pack. It takes a little room and adds a little weight but I ain't wasting my time hiking back to my truck when I could/should be hunting. I keep everything that would get hurt by getting wet in ziplocks or small tupperware containers. I carry a few extra baggies with me at all times. On days it is wet from the start I try to minimize the items that have to be kept dry (ie take 1 box call instead of 3). I also keep a back-up set of ALL my hunting clothes (down to socks, undies, and an extra pair of boots) in the truck everyday of the season. That way if I get soaked I can go back to the truck and change and be back at it ASAP as opposed to giving up for the day or at a minimum wasting an hour or more to drive home to change. I also keep extra calls back at the truck everyday I hunt.
