I have a special bathroom bucket for my wife will line it with a plastic bag. After each use the bag will need to be changed and tied up. Put the bags outside and they will freeze. When were ready to lieve the lake will put the bags in the bucket that need to be put into the trush at home. I've ruined a few minnow buckets before I learned that we should have a special bucket.

Yup, special bucket! I saw something called a Luggable Loue at Fleet Farm. It's pretty much a bucket with a fitting toilet seat attached. You can use bags with it.

I took a wooden seat and laid it on the ground and put a 5 gallon pail on the backside and marked it with a pencil were it would sit so it was centered. I then attached small pieces of wood so when it sat on the pail it would not slide around and it will hold the plastic up. For a taller person use a 6 or 7 gallon pail. I like to put all the Doo bags into 1 plastic bag and put in a pail for the ride home.

We have a chemical toilet that we place in the storage area of the v-front for the ladies to go #1. The guys can go outside. If anybody has to go #2 we flip open the portable outside and start the heater for a few minutes, the portable is modded to hold a 5 gallon bucket with a toilet seat cover, we always double bag, tie it closed and disspose of it in a trash can and take it all to share at the end of the trip.

Unfortunately this was my father in laws last year deer hunting so I modded my 8x12 fish house into a handicap deer stand with all the comforts of home. I took a kitchen table chair took the wood seat off of it and screwed (countersunk) a toilet seat in its place. and put a 5 gal bucket under it. My fish house is on the lake now and the Handicrapper is still in it it feels like home. One of my little boys is potty training and it is natural for him to use this when we are fishing. Plus it makes for a nice chair when the lid is closed.

What kind of plastic bags are you guys using and where do you get them? Regular garbage bags or something thicker?

I sense about 5 pages of replies coming for this question wink

We use what is called Reliance double doodie tm. It is a double bag system with bio-gel waste gelation that fits a 5 gal pail. We put them out to freeze and take them home. They work very well for a messy job. They are a little more spendy

    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
