My grandpa always said "better to have something and not need it rather than need something and not have it".

Doesn't always apply, especially to back country hunting. Are lots of things I'd take if I drive to my camping spot. Packing it in, not so much.

Personally have never used one. Not in Washington, Idaho or Colorado.

Base camp for sure.  At minimum to dry out clothes, but we burn pretty much all night anyways.  This year we had a ton or rain during our elk hunt in September.  Being able to dry out boots and gear was a must.

One game changer for sleeping, wear a beanie! One time in Colorado was in the teens at night. Slept okay the first night. But the second night wore my beanie, made all the difference and slept well. No stove...  though it would have been nice  :chuckle:

Dry go light one man tents.   You can stay warm in small tent.   Build fire outside for enjoyment. 
Wet / snowy pack the stove.

Need is a strong word. Never "needed" it unless there is snow lots or precipitation. But it sure is nice to fire up the stove as you wake up to get your gear squared away during crisp September mornings
