      If you hunt away from home and make camp what kind of camp do you have? I had an old 16′ travel trailer I used for a few years…before that various tents and now back to tents again. I feel closer to the basics in a tent and I like the challenge of a comfortable small camp. This year (2.5 weeks!!) it’s a wall tent of a buddys’ we’ve used before…wood stove, etc. in the middle of nowhere. This is the best part of my year. Would like to hear of others’ camps too!

      I haven’t done it yet,but my plan is to take my dome tent over to the next island west of here and set it up on a bench a ways up from the beach. Might be fewer mosquitoes up there. Then I can pretty much hunt most of the island as it is public land except for a few private areas. It’s a tough hunt as the Salal is over head high. There are a lot of nice Doug Fir and Cedar that would be perfect for a tree stand. Quite a few of them climb like ladders. The nice thing is very few hunters go over there as there is no ferry. I don’t think there are any coyotes over there either and that means lots of little Blacktails!

      I have had a couple of truck campers, but gas prices put an end to that and I’m back to tents, of which I have too many. My current favorite is a 8×12 dome that I got at WalMart for $75. The documentary filmmaker from Belgium spent a whole month in it here in our yard (cabin is too small for guests), through rain and strong wind and it performed flawlessly. It goes up just like any other dome, with two flexible rods that form an X from corner to corner and a separate fly. One person can do it and two can do it in a minute or two. That’s now my all-purpose car camping tent. I also have two smaller domes and a bivy, which is worthless as it doesn’t breathe.

      A couple nights in Idaho, it got into the 30’s. It was pretty comfortable.

      My wife and I have a 31-foot travel trailer that stays at our property. With electric, propane, septic, and a well, it’s quite comfortable — like a cabin on wheels.
