I have thouroughly enjoyed reading this thread(truly one of the best I've seen here) and seeing everyones back country tent camps. I've hunted the Adk's for years from campers and camps(club). But I've never really done what some of you fellas are doing........you've really got me thinking.

I've always said that no matter how good a hunter thinks he is, it all boils down to being in the right place at the right time.

The more time spent in the woods, the better the chance of that happenin'.

Now there's a true statement if I've ever seen one!

Check out these hunters and shelters of the past. I hope this works and I hope I'm not breaking any rules.

Sorry about that. I tried uploading a power point file that had a plethora of old hunting pics and shelters but am lacking tech skills.

I like that stove. Nice flat surface for cooking. Boy, someone likes it cushy when they camp. Looks like you could get lost in that big air mattress. :-) Sleep is important after a hard day's hunt though. What area were you set up in?

My father and I used to tent( small one) years ago for hunting. We used an Aladdin blue flame heater for heat and to cook on. Why couldn't you use the same in the back country of the Adks. This unit is pretty ligh weight and five gallons of kerosene goes along way. You can still buy these on e-bay.

Bobadk, All theses ideas are great. Personally, I don't want to carry 5 gallons of kerosene because of the weight involved. I made my wood stove out of scrap metel from work (no welding involved) and it weighs 8 pounds with the pipe and the down wood for fuel is already there and free.

Yeah Your right , you have to be weight conscious regarding every item you pack back in. we didn't have to go very far, so it was perfect for us.
