    Default Camps and hunting rigs

    I have a thing for camp sight pics and hunting trucks. Lets see some pics of both.

    Here is our camp. Wabbit and I have been hunting this area together for about 12 years.

    Nice set up. I have a 12x15 tent, stove, cooking area (the blue shade tent) and a shower is coming this year along with a tarp for shade.

    I hear ya. The shower is a must. I have a 3 gallon water tank on my stove so we just fill it up and get it hot, set it on the tail gate of the truck and wash the best we can. It works pretty well. The lake that is close to us you would come out of dirtier than you went in. My wife works at home and the kids are in shcool so there is not much of an issue to going hunting for me.

    A couple of rigs, and the tents, a Cabela's BigHorn and the Grubhorn I made from two Cabela's vestibules. Out of the pics is the 'office'. ES has a great pic of the Horns under a foot of snow, unfortunatlly that pic is on his laptop, the one that now has a broken power jack ( being repaired, so maybe we'll get it back ) from Grandson's first elk hunt.
