Using your RV for "huntin camp"?

I've used our hybrid the last 3 years for Elk hunting. We camp above 10K' in Oct & Nov and at times we woke up to -10! The first trip we put out the beds and dealt with the cold. The following years we turtled it and stayed much more comfortable! We always dry camp so the temp was never a concern other than comfort and the heater ALWAYS running. Just curious how many other "hunters" are out there..?

Our current hunting lease has a small camp on it that we run off of deep cycle batteries and propane. We are looking at new leases and one of the criteria is weather or not it has a camp or accessible or close RV accommodations. Cold is not as big a deal for is we are in middle Georgia.

Dropped hunting off my recreational activities quite a few years ago... unless you count coyotes from the front porch at 150 yards.

I had an old pickup camper that I dropped on the ground and used as a base camp. It had 12 volt power, pitcher pump for water and LP for everything else. It is still at the hunt camp some 35+ years later. I gave it to a buddy of mine and he built a shelter over it. We did deer, turkey, dove, duck, geese and bear.

This is in the coastal plains of the Carolinas.

We do. My buddies never had before last year. They loved it so much they are planning for this year too. This way I sleep in and still am at my honey hole spots before sunrise.

Dry camp a week each deer season. Temps range from teens to 50-60. Use furnace with battery at night. Charge with generators during the day. On really cold nights we'll let the gen run all night. Sleep cozy.

Didn't get drawn for Elk last fall but the two years before I did and got a nice bull the first year. We camp up at 9,500 ft in the White Mountains in the Big Lake area. Didn't put in this year but my buddies want me to bring the fiver up for a base camp. SWMBO says no.
