I have two main camps. For long stays and road access, the Kodiak Canvas with a cot get the call. If I need to be in the back country it all pack gear on my back and where ever I stop is home. My camps are simple and fast.

I operated out of a canvas wall tent in the ADKs for 12 seasons, canoe in, during that time I burned through a lot of “helpers”, paddling all the gear in and out during snow storms and all sorts of inclement weather was a task. I used to pick a dead calm morning to go in usually end of September, like in this pic.63759780-9516-4C33-BE61-74548B9A97E4.jpeg I had a few different spots I used for my tents, I have 2 Davis brand tents, a 10x12 and 14x16, depending on location and the number of hunters dictated which tent.83346F3F-449C-4306-B6DB-B0421E1AF320.jpeg And then when season is almost over and you wake up to this, removal definitely becomes a challenge.B77C0D20-E040-451E-B1C4-7BD675F1CA91.jpeg It was a lot of fun and I don’t regret doing it but to be honest it never paid off for me in terms of deer hunting success, I have better luck being more mobile and closer to my truck in recent years, I have since bought a small camp that I can drive to and it sure does make life easier and require less help, I have all summer to get camp in order and ready for season, I can focus more on hunting when season hits.

I have a kodiak canvas. Flex bow. During summer time we take it family camping with stand up ac. Campsite with plug.

But hunting I take a buddy heater or a small electrical stand up heater will work as well.

I also got a 5x8 enclosed trailer but if for pulling all the stuff with tents. The cots and hunting equipment and stuff to cook.

Truck camp when moving often. Canvas covering when stationary....and a Davis Wall tent with a fire stove when we are somewhere cold.086BFCF7-2F84-41EF-B140-8166C6E10FDE.jpeg0D0654D4-979A-42B4-9815-D5FF873E7139.jpegF8F65D31-AF74-4533-9493-820C6761D599.jpeg98811694-E89B-40DB-87A0-7DEC824BF501.jpeg00AAB64B-0A83-449E-B0E0-4FD214C4C73E.jpeg0774ABB2-6E0B-4AD2-8345-6DD1A698C3ED.jpeg
