Permanent of portable? In my sleeper I bought two 12 volt fans for W-mart an a three hole plug in thingy an mounted them to the ceiling an bring along a 12 volt deep cycle an it really keeps the floor warm. You have to get a alligator cliped recepticle for the plug in thingy, its all available at wall mart but the fans are seasonal. Later boar

If you have a surplus store or a computer salvage place go and get yourself a computer fan, cut the little plastic connector thing off and wire it up to your vex battery.

I use a 6" 12V fan that I purchased at NAPA, like the ones used on school busses. I wired it to a livewell timer so it only runs some of the time to save power. They are a bit more expensive then the computer fans but look nice and move a lot of air. IMG_0001.jpg

what size computer fan do you people use? would a fan like the post before me be overkill with blowing too much air in a clam voyager?

Probably the simplest solution for a portable shelter is a Coleman Tent Fan, costs about $12, almost noiseless, runs about 8 hours on a single "D" battery. The base of the fan contains a magnet... you put a removeable thin steel plate on the outside fabric of your shelter, then put the base of the fan on the inside of the fabric, and it stays there until you remove it.

I put mine in a corner, just under the roof, and angle it down towards the floor. Does a great job of gently moving the warmer air just under the roof down to just above the ice.

No matter what I do, I manage to hit the fan with my head or shoulders a dozen times a season. The soft plastic fan blades are harmless, but if you keep banging them in cold weather, cracks may develop. This year I bought two new fan blades from the Coleman spare parts HSOforum. The postage was twice as much as the two fan blades, but I'm set for a couple of years...

Good luck.

I didn't know you were portable.

deja vu has the perfect idea, a tent fan would be perfect and you can get them at Wal Mart.

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
