Yeah 4 would be tight.  We're actually going to add a cook shack off the front , I thought about adding a second smaller cook tent but I don't want to have to mess with a second source of heat to keep things from freezing.  I actually over sized my stove it's a four dog model which will be just right for the added cook shack.  With the tent being a 12x14 the four dog was too warm even dampered & using a pipe damper.  The trick for us was keeping the teenage hunters to keep cleaning up after themselves.   :bash:

Here's the other end without the woods stove.  I use a big buddy heater, fully expand the cook station and upgrade the table to a 6'.

Does your big buddy heater keep it warm? I was thinking about going this route next year

We have two big buddy heaters for a 12x14 wall tent. One is for a drying corner and one for heat. We shut them down to low for night time and stay very warm.

They work great.  We've always just run one and it's been plenty.

I put 400.00 down on a Bravo Wall tent and will soon have to decide on a size.  12x15 or 15x18? I know bigger is usually better but was wondering about weight and difficultly on solo hunts. (Plus cost)  Any thoughts? Late hunts with 2-4 people.

Go 15x18. That's the only way you'll be good with 4 guys.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Thanks. I think after seeing the pics of 12x14 I will go bigger.  I really  appreciate all the input from the guys on the site,  especially the photos .

I've got a 14x16 and we can fit 4 in comfortably.  Sometimes I wish I had a little smaller for when it's just myself and one other.  It's also easier to find spots to set up in treed locations with something a little smaller.

Thats why i went 12x14 for 2 its easy to use and set up with 3 or 4 ill put up the cook shack which will free up the main tent to sleep up to 4 if needed.  From the time i shut the truck off i can have the 12x14 set up in 20 to 30 minutes.  Its a fine line between "comfortable" and too much stuff. 

Hope the pics helped visualize what will work best for you. :tup:
