Well was out 20 days. Caught 7 mice in 24 hour traps around cook shack.
Used the perpetmint oil around the tents and not one mouse seen in 20 days.

The cook shack was 15 feet from the tent in elk camp.

I think the peppermint oil worked.

How much oil? Cotton balls every 6 ft or what?

So I had all three stoves going this trip.
Three dog,four dog and a cylinder stove from UT.

One thing I tried was running them without dampers. I really do t see a need for a damper. The dog stoves have a baffle at pipe outlet to keep heat down.

The dampers seem to clog  after a week of use with chealsote.

They all were easy to control heat out put by controlling air intake.

Anyone tried this?

I put three cotton  balls on each side of a 10x12 tent.
I used four drops of oil per ball.

Peppermint oil runs about 15.00 for a small bottle.

One of my messy chores is getting the chesolte out of the pipes for storage and getting that last bit of ash out of the stoves.

The best method for the pipes I ha e found is to put them in a camp fire. And pick them off with a 5ft rod. Tap while hot and they come real clean.

Getting the last bit of ash out, I have e tried several things.  Just canít get it all out at camp by dumping. The best method I have found is leaf blower through the pipe hole.
Now this is messy for the surrounding area,so I suggest you do it when the wife is not home. And if you live in a apartment complex forget it.
But it does the job.

Any other methods?

Only used dampers with super dry wood or tamarack when its not too cold out so you dont get blown out with heat.  If cold out controlling air intake is all i need.

For cleaning the pipes out I use a branch off of a douglas fir tree.  Use it like a chimney sweep brush and get all the soot out.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I use a bunch of old socks that I lay out on top of each other and place a rope in the middle then zip tie it.👍

I gave up on camp showers a few years ago. Got tired of setting them up.

A hunting partner has one of those Cabela's water heater shower things. He strips naked and takes a shower right out in the open on a rubber mat.

We go into town 3-4 days into the hunt, rent a hotel, everyone takes a shower. Then we grab a bite to eat in town and head back to camp.

Hit up the closest State Park, I used Pearygin every other day. A $1.00 in quarters and I am a happy camper again.
