Storing a snowcovered portable?

Recommended Posts

Last weekend I was using my portable while it was snowing. I packed it up with snow on. Should I set it up to dry & thaw out or is it ok since it is cold out? I plan on using it again this weekend. thanks.

Based on the forecast, I guess I'd set it up. If the snow packed with it melts, it will refreeze and that can't be good for it. If it was just for a couple of days and the temps were going to stay cold, you'd probably be ok as it is.

the best spot for drying your portable is in your dining room. All the hot air coming out when our wives see it will dry them in no time flat. laugh.gif

I was out last year in that freezing rain and had to pack mine up covered in ice. I just set it up in my garage and put the heater on high and let it dry out.

I do the heat in the garage also. I just turn on my sunflower heater for a couple hours and it dries out. I know for sure the living room or dining room is out as if I did that, I would also be out from to much heat in the room.

If you have an unfinished basement you can also set it up down there. I've done that too. It dries much faster in a warm basement with the Mr Heater on high.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
