    I am curious how many people do this as well. I never seem to be able to find my size and the few I have found don't seem to compact very well. I was looking at my new rain jacket though and the inside is grayish white. I guess if I get pinned down and need to pull out all the stops I will give wearing it inside-out it a shot.

    I would guess bow hunters would need them more than rifle hunters, just thinking about throwing it out of pack.

    First ram I ever killed was due to whites.

    Had a long, somewhat open stalk and five very skittish rams.
    I put on a cheesy painter's suit and feigned feeding and pawing (ala Tony Russ' book) and they proceeded to settle down and eventually ignore me.

    To one ram's peril...

    I don't know what kind of suit you are carrying but I used to work a HAZMAT cleanup job and got a box of the suits we used there. It is extremely light and it fits into a quart ziploc bag. I have only been on two sheep hunts and never had to use one so I don't know how effective the tactic is. I think mine weighs 4 oz the hood and the feet are cut off. I figure I already have to carry game bags so i could just use one of them for my head.

    Try a Tyvek painters suit exactly as MT_SLDR described. I left the hood on but also cut off the booties. Paint stores will carry them and they cost about $7. You should soak it in black tea, roll it in the dirt, or do something so that it's not such a BRIGHT white. I used one last year to to cover some open ground on my stalk - was eating sheep the next night
