My bow doesn't mind a bit of moisture... but I still carry a handgun for protection. 

 

I guess that counts?  I take the cleaning kit along and make sure to give it a once over at the end of the day if it got wet, dusty or dirty.  Same went for my BAR .270 when I used to rifle hunt.  Rain is inevitable here... but as long as you wipe it down at the end of the day, oil if necessary, etc. it doesn't hurt anything.
