Hotspot wi-fi from your phone and use a fire stick/roku/chromecast, etc. 

Thats what we do... I have a sling box at home that streams my cable over the internet to the fish house. It lets me change channels, watch the DVR, ect...... basically everything that I can do at home. Just make sure you have an unlimited data plan.

First, you need a cell phone with unlimited data and good data coverage for the area in question.   That can be iffy in more remote rural areas. Most likely up there that means att or Verizon. 

Then you need to activate the "hot spot" feature on your phone.  This may be an extra charge from your provider.   This makes your phone into a wireless router wifi access point.    You can then use any one of several devices that attach to your tv to stream programming from the internet to your tv.  

Do you have cable or satellite at home?

I have Direct at home but the idea is to drop it and save $100.00 a month. I have a smart phone from Verizon and it works well most of the time but if I upgrade to unlimited plan I may as well stay with Direct.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
