Re: Your Opinion on Drag bag/mat vs case and bringing mat?
For hunting situations where I hunt from a vantage point or its feasible to set up, and for test shots in the field , I carry a nylon mat that's roughly 4x7 feet in size. it's waterproof, quiet, and shakes dust and dirt off easily. It folds to take little room in my daypack. It serves other uses as well. After several years, this has proved to be the most effective and practical approach for my hunting style.
