I think you will be fine. If you can open it up till Monday in a dry place so air can get to it all the better.

The wind blew pretty good last night so I just rolled it up and crossed my fingers.

You will be fine. Its takes at least a handful of days and warmer temps for mold/mildew to form.  :twocents:

I've had wet tents sit around in the shop for a month or two in cold weather a few times before I was able to get them opened up and dried, they were fine. But if you take them indoors or if it's warm outside you must act much faster.

I have played around with different security for my tents while camping. We have never had a issue but with all the property crime going on I am looking for more options for the up coming season.

I have used these battery operated alarms around my property to supplement my cameras. They make a good bit of racket and go months without new batteries. Might put them in my tents up high.

Just another cheap option.

I never set up camp where I was worried about it.

Obviously donít leave high dollar items laying around, but normal camp gear Iíve never been worried about.

Thatís the plus of being so far up in the mountains, all the lower camps are low hanging fruit.🤣

Well itís almost time to pull the wall tents out for another season. Turkey opens next week and for my wall tents itís their first outing of the year. They are sound asleep right now in there food grade barrels. Where they were stuffed after hanging and drying after last deer season.

Going to pull them out on the next sunny day. Re-roll them for the trip to the NE.


Back in December I came across these solar motion sensing lights at Harbor freight. Bought one and taped some magnets to the back so I could move it around my driveway on metal objects. It has worked great all winter and gets a enough light to provide some security light around the yard.

Thinking of getting one for the wall tents ,for those old man trips in the middle of the night.

Great idea with the magnets.

Lowes had a Bargain Bin sale of two, two packs, they stuck together for $19, of these similar Solar motion activated LED lights.

I snagged them and put one at each corner of my house up on the fascia. The work great.

Well good weather is on the way. Good time to dig those tents out and give a good inspection ,scrub and general maintenance before the serious hunting starts.

Anyone use the Kodiak tents?  I actually just bought one of the 9x8 kodiak flex bow tents.  My hunting partner and I go east deer hunting every year, and each have our own smaller tents.  I think the 9x8 will fit me and my gear perfect.  Actually going to put it up for the first time this weekend and see how my gear will fit.

OK I admit I am a littl obsessed with LED light,  :chuckle:

I found these stick on LED lights about the size of a quarter. They come in a five pack for a couple bucks at Lowes.
I put one on each side wall of my truck bed, and the work great.
I have not us d them in my tent yet,  but they put out a lot of light in a tiny package.

No worries there is always someone worse. I found those colored cabinet lights that work on remote. I lay in bed at night in the tent and dim the lights to a soothing color. Tell my buddies I am setting the mood for the next days hunt.

They grown roll over and cover their heads. :chuckle:

I have the 10x14 flexbow and its perfect size for 2 guys and gear. We have ran it in the summer all the way down to 20 degrees during late season with no issues.

Does anyone have a queen sized-ish bed in the wall tent when your wife comes along? Mine isnít to fired up about sleeping on her own cot. I have a few ideas like two cots side by side with plywood cut to fit, then some sort of mattress on top .. but i think thereís gotta be a better way.

Though you lose the storage space underneath the cot, a queen sized blow up mattress/bed would work just fine.
