Otter Outdoors service

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, after butchering deer and cleaning up, I was just kind of messing around in the garage. I looked at my new Otter Cabin II sitting there and thought to myself, I would like a couple of additional parts for this.

I called Otter Outdoors yesterday afternoon, Veterans day, in the afternoon and ordered a few things. I fully expected to not see these parts until at least Saturday at the earliest. I just got home from work and there they are. Holy Wow, one day, not even a full day, and I made the order on a holiday.

In my opinion, Otter makes the best, most durable portable out there, and I've used a lot of different portables. Now their customer service gets a big thumbs up too. If you're in the market for a good portable shelter, check them out here.

I've been completly satisfied with my Otter as well! It was the only fish house I have put together that the directions made sense and that alone was enough to make me like them!

I've been satisfied as well. I bought the cheaper wilderness series last year from Otter's team wild. After I opened the package I noticed the window was cracked. Called up and they sent me a brand new one out no questions asked. Got it a few days later and sent the damaged one back free of postage.

I've had the same experience when ordering directly through them. Both times, the order was at my door less than 24 hours after placing it.

gbc, I also have the Team Wild house, is your big logo on the roof on the right way? Mine is upside down if you are standing at the door looking at it, now if you were in an airplane flying from behind to the front it would be perfect....

Not a big deal, just wonder?

riverrat, my house is the wilderness walleye series, not sure if you have the same or if you have the newer wild? My house is all dark green with a smaller logo on the top front that says Wilderness Walleye, which is written so you can read it looking at the front door. Sounds like yours was put on backwards? Doesn't hurt anything though right, just makes yours unique :-)

I ordered the close out Den last year off their site, and unfortunately the travel cover was on back order. They were incredibly helpful, and were great to work with.

Now I am a Clam guy, always have been but I use the big Otters when I have my "Pike Train" cruising across the lake for large groups and Otter has always been great, even when they know I am not the nicest with their product.

For me to call up and tell them "Ya crashed three of your houses together and need some frame tubes" They not only refrain from laughing but have the parts to me asap.

If they only made an ultra light one man.

    • 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
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
