    Looking to do a few hunting/ camping endeavors during October and early November. I was looking at the sportsmans guide teepee tents because of the price. Would it be possible to put a tent stove in one? Thanks in advance.

    I have seen a video where a guy built/sewed a stove Jack into one of those tents or a similar tent but that's the only way.

    Do some research. They're cheap for a reason.

    I would not want to share one of those tents with a stove. If it catches fire, you're toast.

    My feeling is that KY in October and November you're bumping into the end of 3-season tent weather. I've camped in 22F in a Eureka Timberline, and it was not pleasant. 4 -season tents holds heat in better. I'd go for a double-wall tent that took the fly all the way to the ground. By late-October, I usually moved into the back of my truck with the nice cap.

    We slept in a cheap 12x8 tent last gun season and used a Little Buddy heater. It worked surprisingly well. I was worried about CO and left the door flap opened a little at the top but didn't have any issues

    What sections? There are a lot of overhanging rocks that are the way to go with tent camping. You can setup your tent and never see a drop of rain on your fire.

    I have a Macpac Minaret tent and I love it. Durable and the floor is very waterproof.

    Couldn't you just take a regular sleeping bag and run the hammock through the bottom end at the zipper and get the same thing?

    I am not an expert on why it doesn't work, but it doesn't. I have tried and froze my butt off.

    I purchased a high quality sleeping bag designed for cold temps. As long as i am dry and zipped up and around my head, I stay warm. X2 on the extra tarps its a good way to keep moisture out as well as extra insulation.

    Buy what you want but I would not recommend anything with integrated insulation.

    You are A) not going to want to pack it (bulk) when you don't need it and B) not always going to need it. You may start out not needing any insulation when you first lie down but if it drops below 70 your rearend will get cold. I'll use an underquilt and just stuff a jacket under my legs and if my top gets cold I'll pull the jacket over me.

    I have a warbonnet blackbird and Hennessey expedition and several tarps of different sizes.

    I've heard good things about those hammocks. I had a custom made by a guy on hammock forums. I got dumb and sold it. Now I need to buy another
