Mobile hunting camp
« on: January 19, 2022, 03:56:49 PM »
Ok guys here is where I'm stuck. Idk if I should get a hot tent or build a cargo trailer with a wood stove or diesel heater. I'm leaning towards a hot tent because you can get a tent alot do places you can't get a trailer. What do you guys use for your out the of state hunting camps. And I'm talking broke boy hunt camps. Ceo doctors and lawyers need not apply.

Cargo trailer with folding bunks, stove, sink, water tank, shelves/cabinet and small wood stove. Can park and be set up in 10 minutes and just as short a time to pack up and leave or move. Couldn't be happier with camp.  I can tow it up horrible roads and other uses too.

Poor man route.
Costco carport. Sets up in 20 minutes.
Cut hole out side and glue on appropriate size stove pipe heat deflector. Use portable wood stove...
Or bring a Mr buddy and 5 gallon propane tank and heat it for a week easily.
I've used this set up for elk all over wa and north Idaho deer...no issues. Travels easy.

My vote is a tent, especially if it's gonna be more than just you.

Another pro on the cargo,I plan to put an observation/storage deck on top for coyote hunting with lights mounted on safety rail.just have to walk around the ac unit.plus all the gear inside is much more secure.

Foam pad in the back of the truck, Mr. Heater, done.  Zero setup, minimal cost, you can move every day if you want and stay wherever you want.

i forgot to add that i have access to a 15x15 wall tent. im looking for more of a quick set up tent for 1 or 2 people with a stove jack if i was going to go the tent rout. sleeping in the back of my truck aint realy an option since its always full of junk, only a 5ft bed and the canopy leaks.

If it's only one or two people.....I would go with a utility trailer or a Kodiak Canvas.  The trailer can be multi purpose and used year round for multiple task.  Given those parameters.....I would go cargo trailer.  I own all both tents (wall and kodiak) and they definitely have their different applications.  Anything less than a 5 day hunt...the wall tent is to much of a pain to set up and take down.
