    CC Hit (First Elk Hunt) GEAR TIPS

    At camp: -35* sleeping bag, cot, sleep pad, tent capable or can be modified to run a wood stove. I have a Kodiak cabin tent. Camp comfort and drying out every day will keep u hunting. On foot: i use a badlands 2200, danner boots, have some basic kuiu clothing that I layer up under with whatever cold weather type stuff I have. 10x42 Bino’s in a badlands chest pouch, rangefinder, carry 15x56 binos, tripod and small stool in my pack. Havalon and outdoor edge replaceable blade knife, and orange trail tape. Game bags and $.99 sheet of painters plastic to lay my meat on to keep it clean. Fire starter stuff.

    Gun safe recommendations

    Thx for the info. Interested in the Bighorn 24 cu ft/26 gun. At 585 lbs are there any issues setting it on tile?

    Gun safe recommendations

    Never owned one but it’s time. Budget would be $500-800 new or used in the 24ish gun capacity and reasonable fire rating. A nice look would be a bonus. Recommendations? And any install or tips in general appreciated. Ryan

    That’s from Colorado stoves. Read a lot of good things about the additional spark arrestor so wanted it included. My stove is camp chef. Not all nested pipe fits the same so it’s camp chef pipe for the bottom into the stove, then the Colorado box arrestor, then Colorado pipe the rest of the way, and a Colorado cap. I got a good deal on the camp chef but had to figure out how to make everything fit so spent some additional $ to make it all work.

    My tent is the 12x9 FYI. I don’t have much for pics of the install. Pretty easy though. Bought the stove jack from Davis wall tents and sewed it in with a heavy material sewing awl (Amazon). Also bought the Davis heat shield mat that the stove sits on to protect the tent floor. I chose not to mess with the angle of the stove pipe and just ran it straight out the top. There are some vids where guys have run it it out the side wall. Added another spark arrester and a rain cap. Withstood 50 mph gusts those first couple days of the storm without any issue.

    We were burning cedar and pine so it burned quick but a lifesaver after a long day. We didn’t get back til 11 pm when my boy killed. Made a fire next to the bull while I broke him down. Boots got wet then froze after day 3 every day. Stove made all the difference drying out gear and keeping camp comfortable. Sometimes it got a lil too warm in the tent. Fun hunt

    My son and I both filled our tags. Had a chance at a monster and a really good bull but my boy couldn’t connect on em. He ended up with a small 6 pt and I killed a meat bull with 2 hours left in the hunt. Cold but fun hunt. Saw bulls all but 1 day I think. I modified my kodiak tent for a wood stove and it was the best investment I’ve made since the tent itself or the ranger. Buddy heater wouldn’t have cut it.

    Not just cold but also windy with 20-30 mph wind and gusts up to 50. 1-3” snow mixed until Monday. Where I’m at anyway.

    Any bulls down

    Helped a buddy kill a 310 bull. Bugling was decent and getting better everyday. Heard from a friend still up there that the big bulls have just now started moving in.
