I have one and love it. Easy to transport and set up by yourself. I'd buy it if it is in good shape.

I've had one for years until I purchased a new Otter Lodge this year. Very nice house in my opinion. Mine was just warn out and wanted to try something different. You will like it. If you transport with ATV or snowmobile, I suggest you get 2 or 3 bungy cords and strap them down across the short side of the shack. Makes transporting more secure.

I found a used Hideout last summer - paid $100-125 for it. Nice little shelter for when I'm alone or have a long walk, although you can fish two people in it as well.

Easy to get in and out of my van (weight) and for pulling. Sled is reasonable sized for loading gear.

My biggest gripes with it:
1)Skirts - they aren't nearly long enough - the air howls thru the thing - especially when we don't have snow.
2)High profile combined with the light weight makes for a dandy "box kite" when the
wind is howling. (DAMHIKT! Be prepared to have some method of "fastening" it down). But the high profile also allows me to stand up and stretch - so there are trade offs.

If I keep it, an off-season project is going to be taking it to a canvas shop, and getting extention skirts put all the way around it. Am thinking of 6-8" on the sled
sides and 12" +/- on the ice sides.

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      Sounds like a fun day Moose. The weather was just about perfect for the days event.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
