Reflective requirement

Recommended Posts

I generally leave my portable out overnight in front of my cabin and am wondering what other people do for reflectors? DNR says that you must have 2 square inches of reflective material on each side to leave it out overnight. I've tried reflective tape, but it usually falls off in the wind.
I have a Frabil Speedshak cub if it matters to anyone.

Thanks

Strikemaster sells a set of 4 2" square reflective meatal tags for 7 bucks. They have a hole in the middle so I am sure you could find a way to attach them to the canvas somehow.

I just went to the local hardware store and picked up the round reflectors used to nail on something, with the nail holes on top and bottom, bought some big safety pins and just pinned them on the portable.

I wonder if you could get away with just sticking a couple of the driveway marking reflectors in the snow right next to the shack and be good. I don't really want to staple anything to my portable.

Are old Minnesota car license plates good enough as reflectors on permanent houses?
Bend in half on opposite corners so they cover all sides of the house! grin.gif

    • If you can zoom in it's leaning up against my spear house, the red thing.
    • Only if Leech promises to keep his shirt on!
    • i've built/made about 8 of them.  took a piece of mild steel flat bar formed the chisled head by grinding the angle. had it hardened then took 1 1/2 or 2 inch pipe. cut out a slot for the flat bar fit it, welded it up. then took a plumbing end cap, steel, welded that to the pipe, then took a big washer, ground it to fit the end cap, welded it to end cap, then tied a rope to it.
    • Go to Leech's house, put on your apron and have an "artisan" bread baking party then. 😁
    • This white stuff is not bread!  😁
    • mine is about the same and it works!!!
    • Real decision is how much space is needed. Frabill is 6'6"x 6'6", Shappell is 7'6"x 7'6", Eskimo 949i ($289 Amazon & L&M free ship) is 8' x 8'. Find a spot in your home to tape off each hub size than cut 6ea paper circles to hole size and place on floor 3 people fishing. Mark door area on tape put all the gear the 3 people will use fishing, chairs, heater, rod case, coolers, minnow bucket tackle boxes coats  etc and place inside marked floor. You will soon answer the question of which one to buy. 
    • Depending how big you make it, I think the t handle will be awkward, prone to catching on stuff like your jacket, and it's unlikely to be held in a way that makes it useful.     I would put a hole or something for a wrist strap.  And if I was trying to be fancy I would give the upper part a coat of some gritty plasti-dip or a good wrap of hockey tape.
    • I agree Dave. But I hunt and fish and if I looked at it as a cost factor to gain!  Every dang one on this forum site knows the answer to that question! 😉   I just like to try stuff. One time I tapped the Maple trees in my back yard after spending a few bucks on taps and such. I made a block of maple sugar because I didn't know what the H I was doing, but it was Fun anyway!  🙂   Another time I made dried Sage smoke smudges like the Indians make, because some hippy dude at a old time Trapper rendezvous told me they help keep the misquotes away with out using spray. When our friends at the campground came over for a fire they asked if we were smoking Pot over here? 😅 This an't half of it but it's fun to try things. Makes life more interesting.
