    Default Hot tent hare adventure.

    Decided to run up north with some friends once this lockdown nonsense was lifted. Brought my dad's 20 year old excal paradox, some judo points, and some 24 gauge brass wire

    Was a fun adventure. But not so successful for hares. Only turned out with one via snare but was thankful for it. Had one break off and another stolen by something hungrier than me. I must've snowshoed a total of 10km with a cocked crossbow over 4 days and not one during the day time.

    Here's our shelter setup. Super cozy, comprised of a 6 person summer tent, a 18x24ft tarp, and foam floor squares. With the buddy heater on 4,000btu it still reached a warm 8 celcius inside.

    Disclaimer: Had a monoxide sensor inside and the buddy heater has a low O2 sensor. Was ventilated well enough that the buddy heater never turned off.

    Moose tracks and scat also littered the whole entire area. They also did a number on the hardwood saplings. All of them were basically torn apart.

    Also saw the odd wolf, fox, and lynx track. I believe this one to be a lynx, seemed like a very broad cat-like track.

    Sounds like the perfect trip! Those buddy heaters work amazing, I'm too chicken to leave it on overnight but I usually don't camp this time of year. I like your setup.

    Did you guys hike very far with your equipment? Or could you get your vehicle pretty close?

    Set up a bunch of snares, you will never out shoot snares. lol
    Rabbits move a lot at night.
    Looks like a great trip, beautiful dog. Been a while since I did winter camping. The old man 3 star always made it a good night sleep. I would watch those heaters, not exactly healthy to breath that.
