camera pack/case

I have a question for you guys. I typically carry a backpack when I'm hunting or scouting. I'd always just toss my point and shoot camera into my backpack with all my other loose junk. Recently I bought a nice DSLR, so letting it bounce around in my hunting pack with everything else is no longer an option. Does anyone have any recommendations for a small, preferably waterproof case, that can house my camera while it's in my backpack? I'd imagine wrapping the camera would not be wise. Do you guys even take your nice cameras out with you on hunts?

Waterproof is gonna be tough. If you just have a short lens you can get a small soft sided camera case almost anywhere, Best Buy, Staples ext. then just put it in a large ziplock bag.

I don't use a DSLR but I put my 'good' camera and case in a Dry Sack bag. You can get them at wally world or Cabela's.

You could either get a small Pelican case http://www.pelican-case.com/ or a like a lowpro backpack they make ones that are pretty water proof. http://products.lowepro.com/catalog/Backpacks,2.htm

I take my DSLR with me on every hunt.

Besides my camera backpack I also use a dry bag if I am taking it hunting or on the boat.

Re: camera pack/case

While your on the camera case subject, does anyone know of one that i can attached to the handlebars of my bike? I'm trying to fine one that keeps the DSLR camera safe, but available for a quick shot.

Check out Ram Mount, they may have something for you that works.
