It really depends on a lot of factors. For example if you have an ATV to drag a house out I would suggest a 2-3 man flipover. The quality difference is pretty noticable.

I just sold my flip over because I do not have an easy way to get it out. I purchased a clam command post (6'x 12') which fits my needs much better.

I agree with TiNK3R it really does depend on a lot of things. I have the one man PAK SCHACK and rarely use it. It is the cheapest shelter for a reason. I would hold out and get soemthing that is better quality. However, it does provide basic shelter and is very portable and at a low price. Myself, I now use a SCOUT for my one man outings and am very happy with it. I keep my one man PAK SCHACK to lend out to friends, or pack it on my trips were we rent a sleeper. It takes up very little room and I can be more portable from the sleeper house. Good Luck!!

I like my pakshak (1 man) a lot. i don't have a wheeler so it is ver light to carry out. I took off the original strap and sewed backpack straps to it, and then i drag a sled with my auger and tackle behind it. Wouldn't trade that set up for a scout because i can fit much more gear in my sled with pakshak on my back. If you have a wheeler or snowmachine i would definately look at some other options.

I got the 3 man pak shack for my brother and myself. Works good enough I would say if you are walkin out somewhere. Little heavy to carry, but I do like the idea of sewing on some backpack straps. Couple negatives about it though...yes it is cheap (for a reason, quality of material sucks. You can't really bank the front of the houseat all. And if it is windy out, you really have to bank it well on the backside otherwise you literally have to hold it down because there isn't that great of structure at all to it.

Let me know if you have any other questions, I'd be happy to help ya out.

You should also look into the hub style fish shacks too. They are light for their size, cheap, and of a higher quality material. Ofcourse you will need to bring chairs or buckets to sit on. The downside of this style is you must tie it down in windy conditions.

If you are a hunter too, buy a camo blind and pull double duty by fishing in it.

More bang for your buck with that route smile

    • Trump already signalling willingness to work with Democrats in order to bypass House conservatives....     http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/national-international/Trump-Attacks-Conservative-Lawmakers-Over-Health-Bill-417117223.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_BAYBrand   So now we have a supposedly extreme right-leaning Republican president cozying up to Democrats?   What would Uncle Ben think?....            
    • In order to determine which direction to go with healthcare, one fundamental question must be answered.  If an American walks in to a hospital with a sick child or with some sickness themselves and has a treatable medical condition, should a provider have a right to refuse service to that person or their child based on ability to pay?  We cannot have a true free market system unless we are truly callous enough to turn poor people away at the door.  I'm not there.
    • Ice is good in some areas of main lake but bad in areas with moving water / springs. All resort / outfitter access's are closed to vehicles but some are open to four-wheelers. side by sides, and snowmobiles including Morris Point, Long Point, Dales's and Arnesen's, which still has fish houses available as well.  As always, use a resort or outfitter road for safety as they are monitored daily.  Walleye bite has been good with many keepers among smaller fish. Fish are aggressive and having a flasher is helpful.  Jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  17-33 ft.  Best colors glow pink/red and gold. Tip up fishing for pike on fire.  Many flags of northern pike in back bays and reefs.
      Rainy River spring fishing is ON!  The Rainy River is open all the way to Wheeler's Point. Birchdale, Frontier, Vidas, and Timbermill landings are open to all boats. Wheeler's Point will be open in a day or so.  Walleye fishing has been excellent. Many eater walleyes so far with a few monsters. Right now a 1/2 - 3/4 ounce jig is enough to get to the bottom while tipped with 1 or 2 frozen shiners. Pink, orange and gold are hot colors. Many sturgeon being boated as well.     Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are unstable as current areas are opening up quickly.  Travel with caution. Many resorts using airboats at this point.  Fish houses on LOW can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.  
    • I loved BBs post game the other nite after the canucks game,  he nailed it.  Guys got to step it up and play, outside of granny and staal, the rest look like they just started playing.  Lack luster for sure.  Im still hoping they come out and play like I know they are capable of but not looking good
    • This is what I have so far and I think I'll be changing A. Hackney B. KVD C. Ehrler D. Howell E. Lucas   I don't feel confidence about any of them except KVD haha Well I already made a switched and put Dafoe in bucket A for Hackney.
    •   I asked the same thing about a Month ago...must be a contract/money issue...we don't spend money foolishly 
    • Live Target for me. Tried a Lunkerhunt and it kept sinking and holding water.
    • Oh, the hat?  Correct, I was using clone stamp to build the hat.  Of all the problems with my photoshopped images, your issue is with the hat?  I thought the crude cutting and pasting was bad enough that nobody would notice the hat.      Still, you're a massive tool and I have accepted your challenge to do it better.
