Thinking of buying a Cabela's XWT Tent, Thoughts???

4 posts in this topic

I am thinking of purchasing one of these “XWT” tents?

Does anyone else have a review on this tent??

For those of you who have one did you purchase the “Pitch Kit” and the “Floor Liner”??

Do you always stake out all the “guy-outs” points or can you leave some loose in decent weather?

What size do you that have them have, is the 12’ X 12’ to big?

Let me know your thoughts please…

Thanks in advance

I have the precursor to the current XWT, bought in 2001 I believe, after getting the ultimate review from my inlaws. They purchased the tent in 2000 after extensive research, since they were going to stay in it for a 2 week fly in hunting trip to the Brooks range in Alaska that September. In a word, it has been indestructable. I camp up in Voyageurs park for about 22 days each summer and have had winds up to 50mph without a hitch or drop of water. I do not have the floor liner, wish i would have gotten one tho (not made any more). My tent is 9x9, and just fits myself/wife, 4 year old and a 65# husky. I dont think that you will find a better made tent, period. I do not use the outer shell tyouts unless there is going to be rain or high winds, only stake out the guys on the bottom of the outer shell. If this one ever goes (dont think it will tho) I would buy another in a second.

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
