Need siding help for fish house! Don't know what to do.

8 posts in this topic

I am having trouble making a decision on what kind of siding to look into for my perm. Vinyl vs. aluminum vs. steel vs. whatever else I don't know what to do! I want durability, lighter weight, and reasonable pricing. What do you guys suggest doing and where to look?

Be careful if you decide to use vinyl. Some vinyl will crack and break when it gets good and cold outside.

I have horizontal run pole barn tin on mine. Works well.

Where is a good place to check out pole barn tin?

Go with pole barn or "roofing tin" you can purchase at most home improvement stores or lumber yards. One thing we do on the skid houses is run 16-24 inches of pressure treated wood or flat tin on the bottom to help prevent wicking of moisture and making it easy to break out of the snow.

No we just use the three point and those little wheels to bring them across land for summer storage. On skids we move them around with pick-ups pretty easy.

As for the greeen we need our tractors to stay above ground as much as possible. Green ones are just exspensive soil submarines. wink

AND . . . Jonny knows a thing or two about taking tractors below ground level.

Since he has dubbed Buddy the submarine commander, I propose the we bestow upon him the title of something along the lines of a Subterranean Commander (or maybe The Mole).

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
