"Tent suggestions"

Looking to buy a tent for elk hunting this year. I am going to be on a solo hunt, but want something roomy for my cot and gear.
Been looking in Cabelas at the kodiak flex bow says one guy can put it up. What do you guys think or any suggestions.
Thanks

check out www.backcountry.com ...they have tons of tents, cots, bags, everything for camping/outdoors. Most things are discounted and the best part is that they guarantee all products. If your tent rips they will give you a new one.If you live in Utah you can go check out all the products in their warehouse before you buy it.

You can't go wrong with the Kodiak. I bought one a few years ago and absolutely love it. They are sturdy and hold up well to wind and rain. One down side is that they are heavy, as all canvas tents will be. Another thing to think about is snow. If you are elk hunting in an area where you expect lots of snow this may not be ideal because of the (more or less) flat roof. It would handle a bit of snow, especially if you are around to clear it off occasionally, but would not do well with a foot of snow on the roof.

I just can't say enough good about it. My dad and brother have both purchased the same tent since I got mine and are both very satisfied as well. Feel free to PM me if you have other questions.

Thanks wyfly I have heard nothing but good about this tent! As far as the snow on the roof I have some ideas on that issue. Thanks for the reply. Drew an elk tag in Arizona this year can't wait for november.

One word: Springbar, made by Kirkhams in SLC. Heavy duck canvas, waterproof, snowproof,just plain awesome tents. Been there done that in rain, snow, mud whatever. My dad has one that is over 20 years old and still going strong. We still use it on 2-3 hunts every year. I have one that is 12 years old and still looks and works great. They are heavy, but very easy to set up. Lots of different sizes available, check them out online.

Cabela's alaskan Guide is an excellent tent.

I bought mine at Sportsmans Warehouse. Be careful when you prep it. Don't over spray it with water or it can leak. After it dries everything good. 880

You can try this site, which has a huge selection of tents and outdoor gear. A lot of items are discounted heavily because they are rated "factory blems."
