About Tents & Shelters

Enhance your hunting experience with the right shelter system! Shelters serve as strategic bases, offering protection from the elements, and ensuring you stay focused on your hunt regardless of weather conditions. Shelters provide a secure haven for equipment storage, meal preparation, and most importantly rest, boosting overall efficiency in the field. There are several different types of common shelters, including tarps, freestanding tents, tipis, bivvies, and canvas tents, with each being uniquely suited for a specific type of hunt. For ultralight hunters interested in fast and light travel, a bivy sack or tarp may be best. For someone using pack animals or camping near roads, a larger freestanding tent or canvas tent would offer the most space. For 4-season use, many hunters choose a hot tent set up that involves adding a stove. Many tipi shelters include a stove jack making hot tent camping possible!
