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.

    • I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.   There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.
    • I'll betcha the camera doesn't survive the summer.   And I clean my weeds off and the pull the plug too without grumbling.
    • I know...   It was a joke...   This is Sillytown (capital S)...     I did check to see if the article was legit though.
    • Hoont Robust Electronic Rodent Trap - Clean and Humane Extermination of Mice, Rats and Squirrels [UPGRADED VERSION] by Hoont 4.9 out of 5 stars 37 customer reviews   Want it Saturday, Dec. 10? Order within 2 hrs 18 mins and choose Two-Day Shipping at checkout. Details Sold by Four Corners Dist. and Fulfilled by Amazon. Gift-wrap available. EASY TO USE– Simply plug in the device with the provided adapter or insert batteries, apply a small amount of bait, such as peanut butter, etc., then place the Hoont™ Electronic Rat Trap at the desired location and power it on. The Electronic Rat Trap will emit a 7000V shock when a rodent enters into the trap, instantly killing the rodent. New more powerful upgraded version. ADVANCED SMART DETECTION TECHNOLOGY – The Hoont™ Electronic Rat Trap is equipped with advanced rodent detection technology, which ensures that rats and all other rodents get instantly killed, without any possibility of escaping.

There are cheaper options but I thought you guys would prefer the good one.... It will even catch dinner for reb.     I think that 110 isn't going to do it for rodents.   This baby has 7000 volts...  
    • If you install a ventless heater please list me as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy
    • This is silly town.  It was a joke, although on a stand alone basis the article was pretty interesting.   If it was an actual discussion item it would have been posted in one of the hunting forums. 
    • I oppose all that camera stuff, with auto ticketing.   How will the camera tell if there is water in my live well?  Or in my minnow bucket?  Will it focus on the plug as I drive into the parking lot?     I also oppose the red light cameras and speed cameras.  What's next?  Drones following us around? 
    • Must be a hell of a good camera and lens. And no, I follow the rules now as they are written.
