Looks cozy in there!

Sometimes I do the backpack thing, the Kodiak canvas, or sleep in the car.. depends on circumstance.

I'll have to dig up some pictures..

For the past eight years or so all of my camps while hunting have been backpack hunts into the backcountry or road closures. So kind of minimalist in nature. Here's a couple of pictures of the same camp on a road closure, one in good weather the other two in not so good weather. We haul a cart up there so it's not quite as spartan as our backcountry hunts. I was just up at this camp yesterday collecting firewood, rebuilding/cleaning up the fire pit, and scouting. One of my favourite places to hunt.DSCF1161.jpgDSCF1163.jpgDSCF1157.jpg

It is not uncommon for hikers wander in to a potential campsite in the dark guided only by their headlamps. Between being fatigued from miles of hiking and limited ability in the dark to find an appropriate campsite, many plop down right next to the trail or water source and inadvertently begin creating a new campsite in a poor location. But you seem to have a fantastic camp site.

Joseph,why protect a big rock from the rain?I would rather use the space
to protect myself and my gear.Ha!,Ha! Nice setup and like you said plenty of firewood. :cool::cool:
 
We would take this old pop up out west every year. It used to be my uncles and he took it out west every year also for many many years. Sadly, the tradition is going to end this year. We have a new 10x12 tent for base camp and hiking up into high country with satellite camp gear.
It's been a good 40 year run with "The Palace".... RIP. 27845

The big rock actually reflects back a lot of heat from the fire and made a great prop to hold up the back of the lumber tarp. Even when it's just cold that rock really keeps our backs warm, great for drying stuff against. We are pretty picky with where we place our camps, we usually use them year after year so it's worth our while to find a good spot.

We use the same camp for archery deer every year during Monsoon season.
First year I dug a trench uphill from MY camp area.Still works to this day,
20yrs later. :cool:

I use my cargo trailer. Has bunks, heater and lots of storage. Set up the popup, tables, chairs, cook stove and lanterns. Off season, I store everything in it. Great camps.
