As someone whose has had a similar style tent, In my opinion it has one major flaw. At least if your trying to use it in the rain. It would have been so easy for them to have sown a v shaped fly over the door to tie out and keep the rain from running in whenever you go in or out of it. That gets to be a nuisance.

JusPassin, Not shown in the video but I have a small rain fly that ties directly to the tent above the door. I just did not have it up in the video. I've spent some pretty bad weather in the tent and for the most part I like the tent. Still need to put down some sort of ground cloth. take care, brian

Again, nice set-up,

Nice, Two Fletch! I just spent much a Friday with a tent maker. She’s putting together for me bids on a small wall tent, a range tent, which is about like yours and a Baker tent. Always wanted a comfortable camp.

Thanks for sharing and good luck in woods.

Nice set up, I love it.

I have the exact Tent. I bought the available Fly/Awning that ties in over the Door, under the flap You can see. Panther Lodges are the best IMHO ! Bob

The problem I see is tripping when entering or exiting the tent.

Peco2, Thanks. I will be careful.

Yep i told old with parkinsons now to camp but i had both wall tent and hunter tall boy - panthers tents done me well! children loved them! a blessing for family outings rain or 19 degree weather we staved dry and warm with camp wood stove. fine times to remember !!

About five years ago, I bought a 10x10 Kodiak Canvas tent for my Colorado elk and mule deer hunts. Best decision I ever made.

If you are in heavy rain dig a trench around the tent, It reduces water flow in your tent.

Great camp Two Fletch. I love the nostalgia of years gone by and a canvas camp fills the bill. Here's my old Baker lodge.40 + years old and still as comfy as ever. To me traditional archery and canvas just go together.

Grocuhy 62, Thank You for the tip. I've done that a few times when the campsite drainage was not right.

Brain, Really enjoyed the presentation on your camp, I think you only need a buck hanging to make it perfect... even without the buck you will have a great time. Thanks for showing us...

From: JusPassin

The Kodiak is a great tent, but not set up for a wood stove unfortunately.

Love tents, especially my wall tent ... and wood stove, only IF you can drive or horseback it where you want it to be. We dragged it to a site one year on toboggans, for the late PA flintlock-only MZL season in January ... that was not fun in deep snow, LOL, But the camp was awesome!

Great Setup!...Great Times spent in Canvas tents...with Stoves...this 52yr Old Kirkhams Springbar Canvas Tent has served me well over the years...this was 2 weeks ago...Kodiak Tents are a knockoff of the Springbars and are solid tents...You can always add a stove jack to them like I did on My Springbar...Good Luck on Your Hunts/Outings...4finger

If there isn't the smell of canvas add wood smoke then it isn't hunting season. I love my wall tent.

Awhhhh ... my tent pic didn't load from my post above, so here it is!

From: George D. Stout

Darwin, you could rent vendor spaces in that one. :) Only a tent with a stove in it and lots of head room for me, if'n I have to sleep in a tent. Once I got past 50, I wasn't much enamored with them anymore. Those are great setups for you guys that enjoy tenting and hunting. My tent now is a 12 x 24 cabin on our mountain land.

Looks as though you’re ready to have a great time.

When we tent, we use a Kodak 8 person (10x14) and run a generator in a sound box. It’s nice having heat, fans, lights, etc. Might be a little cheating, but it sure is nice. We actually put a queen air mattress over to cots making an elevated bed. Plus, it’s usually just my Wife and I. We have room inside to stand and move around.

The rest of the time our tent looks a lot like the Hampton Inn 20 minutes away

JusPassin, they have then now with stove jacks.

I use a buddy heater in mine when I go up to Colorado. I just run it when I wake up and before I go to sleep, then turn it off once I crawl in the sack. In the morning, I can turn on that buddy heater, my camp stove and lantern and within minutes the top half of that KC tent is about 60-70 degrees. Makes getting up to make breakfast SOOO much nicer. In the evening, I can keep that tent about 65 degrees while I cook supper and read a book before crawling in my bag. It's practically glamping and the propane bottle and buddy heater are soooo much less hassle than a wood stove.

Absolute heaven! When set up properly...warm, dry, snug, spiritual. Can sleep 8 folks comfortably. I set up a separate cooking-dining screened shelter during elk season (yellow jackets). My Sioux Tipi, from Nomadics Tipis in Bend, Oregon, is 24 years old now and shows very little signs of wear. I painted the cover and the 12 liner panels with simple latex house paint and cut the 17 Douglas Fir 24’ tipi poles from my in-laws 100 acre ranch here in western Washington and treated them every two years with Linseed oil and turpentine A simple rack bolts to my pick-up canopy and the grill guard to carry the poles.

Great camps guys. I usually hunt out of my shack, but I have a Kodiak with all the trimmings that needs to make a trip to the northwoods soon.

You guys are serious campers. I'll admit the canvass tents really go with traditional archery. I'm with George on the comfort though, wood cabins and real bathrooms and furniture.
