This may be an old topic here but I'm new around here did not see it. Anyhow has anyone ever tried using a cowsknee for keeping there gun dry? I didn't go out a couple weeks ago in the early season b/c of the rain. My buddy stopped on his way and tried to talk me into it but I refused. 40 minutes later he was calling saying he had gotten a doe and watched 2 more run away. I was kicking myself for not going since it was just a slight sprinkle all day but I hate to get everything all wet. I even kept my old gun when I got my new one so that I could use it as a foul weather gun, but I still don't go in the rain. During the late season in the snow I usually just wrap a piece of towel or something around it and that works okay, however, there is obviously no way I could do that in the rain. If a cowsknee is the way to go can someone enlighten on where I can get one? Thanks and happy hunting!

Any idea how much one costs? Just wandered whether it is worth getting the old tandy leather kit or or simply making the trip to mercer? Also I have never been in Twigs since she moved out on the hill, just when she was in side of the harware in town, any comparison?

I made my own after looking at pictures on the internet. I cut the back out of an old leather couch I saw out on the curb on garbage night. A little snowseal on it next to the heater and it was waterproof and good to go.
