I love this hunting Shack
Where are you moving to . It looks like a great ride .
Looks like ice fishing transportation but the twine around the headlight suggests the thing is used to spread bales of hay or straw, but for what. Not many livestock on a lake and then I see bales on the lake. If you've ever had horses or cattle you'll note that there were a lot of bales by the amount of twine. Next question is whats that contraption on the back? A self mounted augering system which leads back to ice transportation but again why the twine? Snowmobiles in the background. Hmm, bales for a snowmobile race track, but you'd leave the twine on.
I'm going to guess and say the thing on the back is for loading or cutting ice blocks and the bales are for putting the ice up as an insulator.
I found this pic and just fell in love with it.. my grandpa had almost the same thing, and i remember spending lots of time in it, sleeping cooking and even a portable potty too..I was lucky enough to see so much cause each year my grandpa would pick a new place.. He used to work for Pabst in milw.. so we been places like yellow knife, white horse, nome, prince Edward island, Churchill, all over alasaka and Ca and the us.. Then my grandpa opa as we called him being we are from Germany, went into Fishing shows on TV and did the pro circuit all over.. Thats it... So i thought i would share the photo with you that i found. All it said with the pic is...
Ice Fishing shacks and people (Contact Us Please) the landscape of the frozen water on Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg. Come on out and throw in your hook. Brave the cold or stay cozy warm in a friends fishing shack. A bombadier like this can often be seen on the southern shores of Lake Manitoba as they are still used in commercial fishing operations.

My grandpa used to take us to church during snowstorms with a big red one. I'll never froget going from point A to point B (church) in that thing, don't need to stick to roads with them. Ohhh and help to get to the fish house on LOTW's
Ye Olde Doodlebug...a great piece of nostalgia, still some in use on LOW.

Spent some duck seasons at Delta Marsh on the south end of Lake Manitoba and saw these sitting in many yards. Also saw one on display at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.
What were you doing at the Smithsonian in Washington DC, booking a room, you old fart??
Yeah GO, right behind T-Rex in the Museum of Natural History!
