Ya'll have no idea how much better this makes me feel!  I powered through the a couple days of it but could not get my stuff dry inside my truck camper so only lasted 4 of the first days.  Pulled camp and came back to dry for a full day before going back for another 3.  The whole time I'm thinking - I should have gone to eastern Oregon or Idaho with my buddies.  Come to find out - that rain went allll the way across.

I thought I was just being whiny - which I am but man if I wanted to hunt in the crap I'd pick up a rifle!

CP - we came across I nice bunch of those on day 4 so at least we had some fresh ones for dinner that night.

If you cut the mushrooms above the ground and wipe off the remaining debris, there's a lot less cleaning in the kitchen.  :tup:

Look like white and gold chanterelles to me.Cut above ground and leave the butts in the ground,much cleaner and your patch will come back and multiply.

Thanks,  they were a lot of work.  Next time I'll bring a brush or something to wipe them in the field.

Somehow in my work to get things dry i took my insoles our of my boots and hunted three days without them. I kept wondering why my feet were so cold and why my boots felt a half size too big.

One of those things that after you figure it out you wonder how you could be so dumb. Covered a lot of miles like that too

I did something similar years ago (took insoles out to dry) then proceeded to hike 25 miles one day to go see something. Got blisters under both big toenails and both adjoining toenails. A few months later I was lying on the tundra in Alaska on a caribou hunt picking those 4 toenails off. They kept snagging on my sock liners and bugging me. Foot care is kind of a biggy for me now.

We had a few spurts of rain in the Colockum and I always pack rain gear in the tent. Depending on weather I may pack a rain jacket on my pack. A couple times I got caught short and ducked under a tree to stay dry. It also helps if you treat your clothes  pre season so that they shed water if you get caught without the rain gear.

A few spurts of rain? LOL, it poured down rain on us Tuesday the 17th and Wednesday night, like torrential downpour. Sprinkled a bit Thursday but managed a cow Thursday evening.

The minute anything gets through wet weather gear, it just turns into a nice rash-maker.  So you get to choose - warm, squishy and eventually rashy or just wet.

I'll have to try that Yukon out.

Seems like this comes up often. I hunt the westside and have had some days in 40 mph wind and a few inches of rain and been Bone dry in my first light SEAK gear.

The trick is as soon as it startes raining you gotta get the gear on. I have made that mistake a lot. Also in rain gear you need to move slower so you don't sweat it out.

Oh I missed all that. After 10 days I packed up camp on the 16th.  I'm glad you got one. I have to go back for late season....not sure what the weather is going to be like or manageable for myself.
