Deer houses and heaters.....

  1. How if at all do you guys heat your deer hunting shacks? What type heaters you use? While its major overkill and I wont run it with windows closed, I'm slapping in the only extra propane heater I have. A 30,000 BTU Mr. Buddy. Gonna be dang cold next week or so. Also, wife goes at times and her medication makes her really cold.

    My shooting house is a 4X6, with plexiglass windows. I have a Mr. Heater Buddy running off a 20 lb. propane tank. It does a fantastic job of heating, and has really turned me into a wuss hunter. I'm getting ready to freeze though, because I think I need to get into a stand I have back in the woods, if I'm going to have a legitimate chance at a certain buck I'm after.

    I just bought me a little buddy heater yesterday and used it for the first time this morning. This thing is amazing in the popup blind, i had my dad in there with me and i told him i felt like one of those city slicker hunters.

    I use one of those little single burner cookers that screw on top of the small propane cylinder. They are super cheap and can be turned down low enough to just set it between your legs and let the heat rise up on you. I don't have a shooting house just a pop up blind. In late season I run it till sundown then just tough out the last 30 minutes. Turned down low it emits very little light or noise. Cheap and works great

    Mike I just use the buddy heater to take the chill off and wear my winter gear. I don't try to stay too warm it makes me feel guilty :)

    Hard to beat those buddy heaters. We have a two bruner big buddy in one of our shop houses. We bought the hose to run it off a 20# tank and it heats the shop just fine and runs forever off that grill tank.
