Winter Canvas or Army Tent Rental

Recommended Posts

NAMAKANWALLEYE

Anyone know in Duluth, Ely, or elsewhere where I could rent a Canvas Wall Tent or Army Tent, that I could use my personal wood Stove in????

I would be willing to rent a wood stove if mine was too big.

Any Info is appreciated!

Thanks.

Mark

There is a new company in Duluth that rents canvas tents and stoves for cold weather camping. Whitewater outfitters I think it's called. You might contact Hartley Nature Center as this group has been part of their winter festival in the past and they can probably find you contact information. After spending some cold nights in an unheated nylon tent last Winter on Big Knife I swore that this winter I'll rent or buy a canvas tent with a stove for my next Lake Trout foray.

I met someone using a rental stove and tent this weekend. They rented it from a place called Whitewood. They're on Central Hill. Hope this helps.

I hope I didn't send you on a merry chase with the wrong name of the outfitter. Whitewood might be the right one. It might be worthwhile to check with outfitters in Ely if you aren't having any luck. Piragis comes to mind as a company that could at least steer you to someone with canvas tent rentals. When we were skiing out last winter I think one of the parties we ran into said that Piragis might rent winter tents/stoves. Good luck

Check out Snowtrekker. They're out of Solon Springs, WI. They make "traditional" winter camping tents out of canvas, made to be used with wood stoves. I don't know if they rent 'em, but I've heard rumors there might be a company around Duluth that does rent out their tents. Might be worthwhile to get in touch with the Snowtrekker folks and see what you can find out.

Piragis in Ely rents them. I called on one last week. Just ask for someone in winter outfitting.

I'd like to thank everyone on here for their input, except miss moose, oops, I mean monstermoose. Just kiddin Man. wink.gif

This goes to show how well this forum is working.

Counting down the days. Only 45 days left in Yellowstone, then off for two months.

That will be two months of fishing, hopefully.

I just saw an ad in the St. Cloud paper for a 10 x 10 black canvas wall tent w/floor and military stove jack. I can send you the contact info if you're interested.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
