    I needed a heater for my wife and daughter to use in their enclosed stand so I picked up a little buddy heater. Tried it out once I got home and boy does that thing pump out the heat. My first thought was when can I set it up to sit in there alone with my wife. I feel a naked hunt with her is in my future.

    Don't screw it up. Then have your wife call mine. :)

    I used one with my kid in our enclosed blind last week. Had a window open..... Looked down the logging trail and a doe was staring up at us with her ears back. Fairly rare that we get busted by them seeing us. I suppose it could have been some other scent but it made me think she smelled the Little Buddy. I have no idea. Curious what people think.

    Naked hunts with my wife is a much better idea then Bill’s fake eyeballs and a camera !

    I agree just heed this warning! Leave the long bow at home. It could bring painful new meaning to string rash. :emoji_fearful::emoji_scream:

    Be sure to meet your state's blaze orange requirement.

    I think we need photo verification of your wife's viability in this contest ... versus you and Bill comparing long bows and eyeballs ... I am sure any of our wives are easier on the eyes than any of us ... :emoji_grin:

    The heaters are great....just make sure you can get some fresh air. If you don;t they can make you sick. I use one all the time in my shooting houses.....just enough to take the sting out of the cold. Only thing I wish they had a small battery powered fan to help circulate the heat.....but they work for their intended purpose. I tend to keep an extra bottle or two in each shooting house just in case as well until season closes.

    My oldest and youngest are already arguing over who gets it saturday....it's our firearms opener. What they don't realize is it's DAD'S....so it's going with dad! Which may mean I may have more company than I really want!!!

    I use one when I am in my enclosed stand, or in a portable blind. But I also have hunted in -40 in Northern Wisconsin, must have if you are going to sit more then a couple hours.

    Your in luck they make one that takes 4 D battery’s. Do some research it might be the big buddy heater.

    Yep - it's a bigger more expensive one. I have a large pack I use while hunting from my shooting houses and I can put my lil buddy heater actually in my pack (its a big SOG pack). This larger one won't fit.....but it may be one to buy 2 of them and just leave them in the shooting houses instead. Turn them into saunas!
