Internal frames are so easy to set up and take the work out of set up in my opinion. You can also as previously mentioned dry clothes easier. I purchased one of those little fans to set on the stove to circulate the heat better. Always dug a trench on the uphill side of the tent just incase, yes I learned the hard way. We also always tapped the tent keeps it cleaner and helps keep more heat in. Always go bigger in wall tents and stoves in my opinion if you can. We got a larger stove just so we didn't have to get up in the night to stoke the fire.

Ya that is a good tent. I loved it. But I wanted something with a stove I could set up by myself.
A little a Buddy will heat your tent well.

We run ice fishing shack LED rope lights . Hooked up to 2 6 volt Trojan deep cycles. Then a 1,000watt inverter to run TV ,sony play station for movies and a ipod speaker for sound. Run all that for nearly week before i need to charge. I want to add a small solar cell trickle charger thou.  We run a tarp down first same size as tent. Then indoor /outdoor carpet thru the whole thing except 4ft by the door. We run one og those cheap transmission drip pans from wally world under the stove to catch any embors out of the door. Built some cloths drying racks this year will see how they work come november. Never had to trench around tent yet.  Also read somewere about putting one screw in chimmney at top and one at bottom. Then spiral wire around it between them to hold the chimmney together in the wind.

Nice

First official hunt in my tent now over. Muzzy elk.  Two of us just right. Added my grandson on another cot little crowded. No stove due to fire restrictions in the Naches.

Picked up one of those closet organizers that hang on rod at G sale. Worked great hanging from the side rail holding all the keys and stuff.

Off in three days for modern deer. Just me , So will be taking the new Three Dog and trying it out. I bought my tent for these kind of of solo or one buddy min. hunts.

Got the big camp on the trailer in the drive way ,going to empty out and take a  small camp. Might even take my new hunting ride. :chuckle: ( Another Thread)

Good Wall tenting all.

Archery elk the four dog got me thirteen nights between two camps.  No elk but great times!  Good warm sleep too.  I need a bigger tent.  Has anyone ever just set two up length wise together?  Another 12x12 and that stove would heat both.

Yes many times it works great ! We set them 10 feet apart and tarp between makes a good cook/storage spot 😀 I now have frame pipes that go from one tent to the other but use to just rope one to the other to support tarp
This place protected by God and Guns trespass and you might get to meet Both !

Good thread.

Two words. Propane oven.

We freeze precooked casseroles ahead of time in meatloaf containers in individual servings. Come in from the hunt, turn on the propane oven and pop in the meals. Do a few chores, hang up wet clothes, and are eating in 30 minutes. Fold up container and throw away. No dishes.

It has two burners on top if we need to boil some water.

I picked up a hanging organizer at VV a few years ago for a couple bucks.  It wraps around my frame pole with velcro and provides great storage.  Most are canvas material and collapse for easy storage/packing.

Yeah a oven is nice ,we packed one for many years . Our old guy would come in half day when he got cold and make pies for us.  Havent taken it in the past few years too much stuff.

I have two 12x16's that I put together some years for archery elk.  I picked up the second one from a member here a few years ago, zippered doors on both ends of it so it butts up against my first one.  I'll see if I can find some pictures, makes it pretty nice having a kitchen/gathering area and a sleeping quarters.

I also made wooden boxes for the tents and the frames for storage/transportation, they double as tables in the tent after we set them up.
