The ď@ď thing only works when mods do it for some reason.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

asking for a friend......@Pathfinder101


Any tips on fixing a bent frame?

Bent pole, heat it and bend it back.😉

If it breaks get a new pole.🤣

Solid tactic. Hoping that this comment finds it's way to @Pathfinder101 soon. LOL

Is one pipe bent, or is your whole frame tweaked?

If the whole thing is tweaked you might have multiple poles bent.

But you still have to bend them one at a time to fix them.🤣

OK, so.... Hunt-WA 101...
When you log on and see a number in your profile that says "mentions", you click on it.  That brings you to the thread you were "mentioned" in.  Then you read through it and your elk hunting partner is proposing a backyard project involving a firepit and your wall tent that will allow your wall tent door to close the way it's supposed to (just in case elk camp gets another 3 feet of snow and the temp drops to negative wind chills again this year)... :chuckle: :chuckle:

@coryTDF... you busy this weekend...? :chuckle:

WoW! What a wealth of knowledge in this thread. For a guy with a new wall tent and preparing for its maiden voyage, a very valuable resource. It only took me 3 days to read through the 42 pages  :chuckle:

Thanks to everyone for their contributions and advice. A few questions.

1) I read several guys stating that they use battery lights inside the tent instead of propane. Is this a safety issue or personal preference? The camps I have been in used propane with no problem, at least not that I was aware of. My plan was to use propane, big bottle-tree-lantern.

2) How many of you guys leave your tent up mid-week while you aren't there? Say between the end of elk and beginning of deer (Eastside).

3) My plan was to use a plastic tarp over the back half of my tent to add another layer of protection from weather (snow) and to help keep any embers from burning holes. I don't plan on tarping the front half because I don't want to deal with working the tarp around the stove chimney and jack. Thoughts?

Thanks

I'd say there is nothing unsafe about propane light,  its just preference.  The new LED lights are way brighter and last very long with good batteries,  and way easier to move around or grab and go to pack meat out at odark thirty. A safety part for us using LED is our kids 5 and 10 are in camp for 3 weeks and its one less hot something to touch.

As for your tent being up for a period of time.  There's a 14 day stay rule which is up to you to decide how to maneuver?

I moved from propane lights to battery three years ago. Never go back. Propane is brighter some times ,but they are way more sensitive than battery and take up a lot more room. propane seemed to get broke globes .

I set my tents up at beginning of season till day after it ends. But we always have folks in camp.


You can make your own rain fly out of a white tarp in a couple hours. I have two one for each tent. Cut the pipe hole out square 8 inches from stove jack hole on tent. Do it in the back yard. 16 inch eves each side ,12 inches in back , 6 feet out over the door. Mark the fly with marker on all corners where it matches tent frame, Mark it on edge front and back, and center. Makes for easy fitting over tent.

Many guys don't do it , But if you want to cut down on a lot of maintenance and keep it looking good well worth the time to fit a total fly. Eastern WA pitch is a bugger on canvas.

Practice no spark fires. NO Paper burning, no kindlin, use fire starter

Heavy rain dripping in dirt along your tent will make a heck of a mess of your tent. Fly that goes out past the tent helps a lot.
