Wheelhouse manufacturers

Recommended Posts

Besides the commercial wheelhouse builders like Ice Castle, The Lodge, King Crow, Road King, Sportsmans, are there any others??

Maybe good reliable private builders also??

I am looking for an 8 x 16 with rear double swing doors. More plain than fancy. Getting dizzy looking on the confusing internet.

Check out the Shack Rack brand. They look very impressive, one of a kind frame and steel studs.

There is a recent thread about them "finally starting my 09 fish house project"

His is a 12', but they make larger tandem axles as well.

My son has a Performance Engineering house, they were great to work with and make alot of custom changes at no cost. My brother has an Ultra Shack and likes it, I have an Ice Castle that I am very happy with. Mine has vinyl siding that gets brittle when it's real cold, I would add a stone shield if you go with vinyl. I do not have double doors, but the other 2 do. I will say that the double doors are nice to haul a wheeler but they do a poor job as far as keeping the cold out. There will be ice build up if you don't run a fan to keep the air moving. Just my 2 cents.

    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.

    • Hmmm.  My cheapest camera is a Wildgame Innovations unit but I haven’t been a great fan of it.  It’s not the NANO version but though, just a cheap one I picked up in a small shop during a hunt cuz I felt I NEEDED one right then.   I do like my old Moultrie and am looking at the M50i as a much updated version of it.   Still comparing their line up.  If I just bought now, that’s what I’d go with.   That WGI 360 sounds like something I have to check out!
    • I have been a Wild Game Innovations fan for most of my time using cams.  I really really like the NANO version they put out.  Compact, only take 4 AA batteries, great battery life and the pictures have been very good quality.  That being said, last year I won a Moultrie Game Spy 2 at a company party and have been very impressed with it.  Same as the Nano, takes only 4 batteries and pictures are very good as well.  These two cameras are now my "go to" and I won't be needing to spend  100's on other cameras when these work great.  The one camera that I am thinking about getting though is the WGI 360 degree camera.  Supposed to be able to take pictures 360 degrees so you don't miss anything moving behind where a normal camera can't detect them.
    • yeah the last couple years have been rather tough for me, but all is good and I can't wait to get back into the stand.  Are you still working the Deployed Soldier/Disabled Soldier hunt at Ripley?  We stopped going as it was just too early in the season and weather was always so darn warm.  Wish they would have held it right prior to the "big" hunts at the end of the month.  Always a good time though.    You'll hear more from me in the time to come and look forward to hearing all your reports of the big one!!!
    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.
