Seems weird that you guys clean your tents before season and not after the seasonal use and before storage.

I think the only reason to clean before would be to shrink the canvas.  I wash mine after and then hang it in the shop to dryÖ..then it goes on the shelf till the following season.   Never used detergent on my canvas tents either.   Broom off the dried debris, hose off the rest and then let dry.   Easy as that.
Pretty much same process on my end. Although, every other year or two I will set mine up in the summer months for a week or so just for the hell of it.

Iím definitely not knocking on a guy (Ghost) who takes great care and pride in his equipment.

i have mine stored in rolling wheel trash cans. the 16x20 is tough to manage one person and this works well to store... also a sash of mothballs to keep rodents out of the can sitting inside.

Going to buy a wall tent. Looking for input on which is the best. Something around 16 x20 and a lighter material than the heavy canvas. Our hunting party in on the older side . I have a good wood stove and will be hunting with snow at times. Thanks Larry

I would look into the Cabelas Bighorn and Alaknak if you are wanting lighter material

Montana Canvas are the heaviest but last excellent
The Wall Tent Shop has a much lighter canvas, they are good tents too, I have several
Relite is lighter than canvas (google relite tents)

I would not buy a large tent. If I needed that much room I would buy two small tents. Hunting camp populations go up and down with two smaller tents you have more flexibility.
If you got one big tent and nobody wants to go. The tent stays home and thatís a shame.

I have three 10 x 12 tents. Elk camp this year four guys. Two tents up and the extra frame between them for a kitchen. The big cook shack stays on the trailer.
From there straight to deer camp 15 folks all three of my tents full and the big cook shack is up. The other nine folks bring their own.

Want to go buy yourself one 10 x12 is a palace with a wood stove.

A lot easier.

One of my tents is 10 oz with aluminum frame from Reliable Tent and Tipi. Itís my favorite.
