New Orange Otter Ice Houses at FF

18 posts in this topic

Any one check out the Otter Ice house Packages at FF? They have a med size with bench seat and velcro windows for $349 but can not find them on any web site? They are black with orange top. That same house the green Cabin is $599 with a bench seat from the Otter site.

The Wild series is a real nice house for the price. Bench seat gives you good seating room as well as a place to set your unused gear when fishing.

Same Otter quality we all love at a nice price.

I think I will be running the 1 man wild series house for early ice this season.

Thanks that was what I was looking for, they are not on Otters web site. Thats why I asked. Thought they were custom made for FF because of the orange color.

yep the wild houses use a 600 denier while the true otter houses use a 900 denier, but I think for the price and the fact that they are 12 pounds lighter they would be great for hole hopping

I bought one of these at gander last spring for a really cheap price. I paid under 250.00!! after taxes! The only problem is that the tub is too small for the brackets for the seat!1 they claimed that is was not opened and was the right parts but it was not! I just did some mods of my own and waaalllaaa. Its even better now!Ha! they are nice and light for one person to lift into a truck.

I saw the 2 man in the ad at Fleet Farm at a pretty good price. Anybody know what the 1 man sells for?

Im pretty sure the Wild sleds are a bit more lifted on the front sides but are a very heavy duty sled and are very durable. Like I tel everyone. Put Hyfax on your sled and you wont have any worries.

I think you are correct Northlander. I sat on the seat on the front side of the Wild sled that was on display. The whole thing tipped forward ... that doesn't happen with my otter lodge.

If you have a bench seat and sit on the very end of any empty sled that has curved up front, it will tip. Unless the sled is big enough to displace your body weigh. Most med. sized shacks are not that big.

The Team Wild sled is very nice. It does have a raised front and a nice cut out on the side for fishing.

I got one of the Team Wild 3 this year and it is a very nice setup for the price. Looks cool also wink

If you look at otters website, you can find a link for Team Wild right at the bottom of the home page.

I'm looking at one of these as well, Can you tell me how tall it is when collapsed? I only have 20.5" clearance under my bed cover on my pickup, will it fit? They claim 16" in the info. but I find that hard to believe with a bench (even folded)...

    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL 
    • Leech is absolutely on the right track.  Likely an easy remedy here.
    • Oh yes, he has been around guns since young. I suspect it is a combination of his thinking they are "cool" weapons and the fact that he lives and often has to work in a "high tension" area. I believe he is more interested in high cap than high quality and he can likely spend something reasonable. Since these things are not my bag I am unaware of pricing, features etc. just told him I could ask around for him. Have never had one in my hands! He may have been fired up because he saw some special at F.Farm on them. Thanks.
    • No battery in a 185 3 wheeler. Will have to pull it by hand.
    •   Does he own other guns?   What does he want it for? Self defense Hunting Just to own an AR because they are cool   How much money does he have to spend on one?
