I'm with FishinWebGuy,

A lone wolf, but add a Heater Body Suit.

It lets you have a heated, waterproof, and portable stand to take anywhere you want to smile

All day when it's -10, No Problem smile

Before the suit, I would get cold after a half hour, now I can sit dark to dark in January!!!

You must be one of those "opening weekend" hunters smile

FYI: Late bowseason runs from 11/30-1/03 this year. I think it was the 6th of January last year.

Late season is a great time to be in the woods! Most guys are sitting at home smile

Remember this is a Minnesota HSOforum so we usually play by MN rules when bowhunting. I however wouldn't mind one bit if they extended the season a few more days like Wisconsin.

It is actually a (don't laugh)refrigerator. Hey, my grandpa liked to hunt in comfort. grin He had it set up using a car batt. and he would stay out there for 2 or 3 days at a time. Oh ya, he also has a bunk up there.

    • Not a bad idea or product. I just think I'd be worried about the well freezing into the ice. 
    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!
    • Did 20 qts of pickles last Monday, another 1/2 bushel tomorrow!!
    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!
    • When is the date unsold bear tags go onsale?
    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
