boot dryer what do you use?

Question

BandB

just a question about what type of boot dryer you guys use. I personly use the dry guy boot dryer and it will dry wet boots in about 2 hrs. They are a bit on the spendy side but well worth it about $90. dose any one else have one that works as wheel but cost less money I need to get a nother one

Peet is a great one at a reasonable cost

I use a peet dryer and love it for boots. I recomend buying the glove attachment also it comes in real handy.

We had a Peet propane unit in elk camp this year. Excellent unit.

I use the peet dryer and although its not real fast it is better for drying leather out. Leather needs to be warmed and dryed slowly so that it doesn't crack, split or get tough.

I think the Peet one is $30. I also use the glove attachments and 2 sets of extension tubes for my chest waders. Great product.

Tried posting last night, apparently it didn't work confused.gif

I too use the Peet. Have one for my gloves and one for boots. I also have the wader extensions too.

I have put dripping wet hunting boots on that thing at night and worn them the next day, that's not too slow for me!

Are the propane ones as good? I've always thought they were a nice idea for somewhere like an elk camp where electric may not be available NOTHING worse than cold/wet feet, just impossible to stay warm with that problem.

I built my own out of 2" PVC pipe. It uses a hair dryer and can dry soaking wet boots out in a couple hours max.

I built one also for about 5 bucks, doesn't need to be plugged on either, so you can use it anywhere. I bought some cheap plastic tool boxes, then got some 1 1/2" pvc and a small chunk of plexiglass or similiar. Went to axman and picked up a couple muffin fans, wired them to a 12v battery and presto. I made about 6 one year for all my unlces and cousins cause they liked mine so much.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.

      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
