Another thread got me thinking.

Anyone ever just throw some pellets in with the wood in your tent stove?

How’s that work?

I've thought about that for my Seek titanium stove, but I have not done it yet.

About three weeks I will have three tents up turkey hunting. Might give it a try.

My guess is that with out wood coals under them they’ll smother out. The pellet stoves made for wall tents create their own draft to keep them burning.

But hey you never know.🤣

Your local outdoor supply store carries bear bricks or similar rectangular presto logs that work great. But a teepee generally means packin so sticks are what you work with

We tried this once.  Worked OK.  Got more burn time before we had to wake up and restoke it.  Just feels wrong using presto logs at elk camp though... :chuckle:

When I was guiding, we always put in boot scrapers at the entrance of the tent.
 We'd excavate a place in front, like you were pouring a slab.
 We'd then put 3-4 pieces of split firewood,  with the thin edges up, then backfill the  hole with the firewood buried, proud, sticking out.

  Good and packed, makes a good door mat for cleaning muddy boots.

I am a little, lets say crazy about my tent care. The canvas bags they come with are less than adequate for transport in my opinion. So I come up with different solutions for moving them around.
I have a large over size decoy bag I have used for one tent with a very durable fabric. But the best thing I have ever found was a soft car top carrier at a G sale. It unzips a huge opening ,which you can roll the tent into and zip shut. Protects the tent from moisture, snags and such.
I like this method so much I bought a new soft car top cargo carrier for my 3rd tent.

I only use them for transport from storage to camp and back.

I hate the bags tents come in. Seriously why make a bag, that is all but Impossible to get the tent back in Once you use it.  :bash:

LOL

I use clear plastic bins.
All my tent stuff go in one bin. My cooking stuff in another, and the in tent stuff in a Third. I put my dry food in a different type of bin, with easy access.

Makes it really easy to pack and keep everything together.

Yea I did some thing similar for all the tent stuff except the tent,  because I dry the tents when I get home.
The angle,stove,stakes , ground cloth ,ropes ,stove fan, all go in these plastic tool boxes that roll up my trailer ramp.

What kind of spark arrestor are people using with their tent stoves? Any DIY ones people can't live without?

I use the standard fair when I have too. They all clog up if you are in camp using them every day. I like a elbow on the top that I turn depending on wind.

My buddy wants to try one of those spinning ones. But he is going to custom make them.
