Lit­tle Tents, Lit­tle Fun

Modern Pioneer - - Hunting / Shooting -

If you find your­self shop­ping for a new tent, con­sider sev­eral things. First, while on­line shop­ping is a great way to buy many of life’s ne­ces­si­ties, I don’t rec­om­mend it for tents. Go into a store and look at the tents you’re con­sid­er­ing. Make sure the one you buy is large enough to fit your needs.

For ex­am­ple, you might plan to go on a solo trip and de­cide that a two-man tent will be more than enough. It won’t. For some rea­son, tents are of­ten advertised to ac­com­mo­date more peo­ple than they ac­tu­ally do. For me, a four-man tent is per­fect for com­fort­able solo trips, and a six-man tent is ideal for hunt­ing with a buddy. Take a long look at them in per­son and you’ll see what I mean.
