Ah yes.  I often day dream about owning a camp as well.  Figure I need to get a house first!  LOL  

Recently I have received some nice news,   :readit:   and I think I have figured out how I am going to get my camp in northern Michigan, but it is still several years away.  

This could be interesting.  I have been in a few rifle camps, how do the trad guys do'er?   :campfire:      

Stay safe

i didnt even think about that kathryn! that does look like quite an adventure.  :thumbsup:  
for me its not so much about the "hunting" that goes along with the hunting camp. but its the wakin up in the middle of the night and stokin the woodstove, the sights and smells, drinkin instant coffee,no electricity, listnen to the radio and tellin stories with your friends. i look at it like goin back in time i guess i would say!! ( i hope that doesnt sound to corny!!!!)  :campfire:    :coffee:

Glaisnock, looks like a bear raided your camp!  I don't have a permanent camp, either but have spent some time in camps owned (at least in part) by some of my friends.  Some of them are nice, but when they aren't your own you can't have things just the way you'd like.  Of course a wall tent and stove would be a possability for portability, comfort, less worry about vandals, less taxes, and you wouldn't need two of everything like with a permanent cabin.  But then you do still have to haul it around, set up, take down, and store it.  I guess that I too have the dream of having a northwoods camp.  And it is anything but corny to enjoy the romance of the wilderness!  I like ron la clair's set up (from what I've seen in pics on this forum).

Tim Cosgrove brought his laptop so we could look at the pictures we took with out digital cameras. Shrew Haven has no electricity, we have gas lights and a gas cook stove that runs off two 100# gas tanks. Heat is from a Fisher wood stove that has been tested in well below zero temps. Cell phones don't even work in this remote area but we are as happy as if we were in our right minds.    :smileystooges: ...   :biglaugh:

By the way, that is a Super Shrew Gold on top of the couch in the previous photo...

Here is another view of the cabin. That old wood stove in the corner will heat the place into the 80 degree range and about drive you out into the cold. We do have electricity for refrigerator, stove and light...

We have a deck that we practice shooting off of. You can see my 3-D deer target about 15 yards from the deck near the storage shed. We keep our treestands, etc. in there.

Below the deck there are 2 sets of winches and gambrels for hanging game. You can't see it in this photo, but we also scrounged up a 14 foot long, 3 foot wide aluminum table for butchering game. A restaurant went out of business and liquidated some of its equiment.

Great pictures guys.  

Mr. LaClair I admired your camp on your website awhile ago.  The location alone is worth gold.  Not to mention the history and quality.

George I also love your camp.  Looks nicer that my house!  I would like to have a camp like either of yours, somewhere I can take friends and family to relax, not just hunt.

Matt Fowler your camp is very unique.  I will be sending a PM shortly inquiring about it.

Thanks all and keep them coming.  Helps me dream more and more!

Stay safe!

In the process of buying my camp right now.  1.1 acres of land w/a 10x48 house trailer currently on it in the middle of 60,000 acres of timber company land in Randolph County WV.  After we pay for what's already there, we'll have 5K right off the top to start work on our own cabin so we can get rid of the trailer.  Can't wait till it's all settled.

Wasn't sure if the picture would come through. But it's a homemade wall tent made out of over the counter tarps complete with a wood burner! Can have it smoking hot in there in no time. Thats a homemade recurve and used a homemade knife to skin and butcher that particular deer.Do my own taxidermy also. Now if I could just make a homemade  tree stand that equals the LW!

Kirk,
My eyes must be playing tricks on me. In your second photo I'm assuming the man on the right is leaning on moss covered stump.

Or is he holding up some sort of green hairy bobcat looking thing by the back of the legs as the others sit and admire it?

I've heard reports of Sasquatch out that way but nothing like that  :)    :scared:

I'm just wondering if you guys that are showing pics of these large elaborate campsites.....do you guys just wonder up somewhere in the woods and toss up your tents (I know I am oversimplifying it)?

Maybe we just don't have enough woods around Kansas, but I can't imagine how awesome it would be to put a tent where you want to and not on a predesignated camping lot with a gravel drive and campsite number.
Title: Re: huntin camps??
Post by: Killdeer on December 28, 2007, 05:09:00 AM
You can camp anywhere in the National Forest, with a few restrictions. I think you have to be a certain distance from a stream, you can't block a trailhead or trail, and you can't camp too close to a permanent structure, like a fire tower or other FS building.

Some wildlife management areas have similar provisions. Contact the Forest Service or State Game commission for details.

You wont believe the answer to your question, which in fact leads to a much longer story i shall post in the near future.....but this is a piece of vine maple i harvested in hunting camp....I told my hunting partnes son Nick to "Hold on to this" and took the picture....Then i told him i was going to make some bows from this hairy chunk of wood for his kids.....they are ages 2 and 4 years old....this is what that piece of wood looks like now...

Here's our primary cabin

and our secondary cabin

   (http://clubs.bowhunting.net/itba/temp/Second_Cabin.JPG)

I first hunted out of the A-frame as a very young boy, hunted with Dad and his friends from there for a good piece of my my life. Later, Dad, my brother and I bought some land next door and built the log cabin. The original owner of the A-frame wanted to sell so now it's all ours - Lucky fellows, and we enjoy it greatly as another generation is following in our footsteps.

Great pics all! It must be nice to have such places to get away. I hunt very near my house on some great property, but many times I long for that camp-style getaway. Must be great to enjoy time in camp with others that share your passion for the hunt.

One day I hope to have the opportunity to share such a camp.

Thank you Killdeer!

I just learned how to post the pictures yesterday. My little cabin in Indiana and I'm sure the same can be said for Dan's are fantastic places to get away, but I have to tell you the best part of having my cabin is sharing it with my kids. I have the best hunting memories of my life orginating from that little rustic cabin. Given that I have been to Alaska many times and have hunted all over the US and Canada, that is saying a lot. There is nothing better than spending a long weekend or a week at the cabin with my kids. Best $1500 investment I ever made. Seems I got a pretty good deal on the cabin and 5 acres.

I've posted this pic several times but this is my cabin in West TN on about 60 acres. I bought the place in 1984. I had a little help building the little cabin the following Spring--no electricity at the time so we built it with a generator. This place helped my keep my sanity during my police career.

Here is a scanned pic of the site where I built the cabin. My hunting friend Richard gave of his time to help my get the cabin up and dried in. I was Richard's pallbearer several years ago. I have a trail named after him on the property. I constantly wonder how families can just up and sell their family farms without hesitation knowing the sacrifices made by generations before them.

Is that an A-Liner Richard had? A friend like that makes the camp more precious, and the time in it that remains to us all the more dear. I can only imagine what it must be like to walk his trail.

Joe, that is the 8-man Alaskan Guide. Ya walk around a lot setting it up by yourself, that's for sure! I forget how many seasons it has had up there, plus a couple warm-weather outings. Does it rain in your vestibule, too? Haven't figured out how to keep condensation from building up in there yet. Tent is cozy, though.  :)

This is a cabin that is under still construction. But its insulated and weather tight and has a wood stove. I have to pack in everything to it on a trail I built as it is not truck accessible and a couple of miles in from where I can park. And yes I packed in all the supplies and built it using my dewalts & chain saw. Its located on about 20 acres that I chose and staked. Sits above the base of the Alaska Range and has endured 4 moose/caribou seasons and the local grizz population so far. Now if I can only draw a sheep tag for that area as it sits in the TMA (trophy area)and about a1 1/2 miles from where they hang out.

Our little hunting cabin.  My son and I built this hunting cabin in 2003 from 6"x8" logs that were squared-up on a friend's sawmill.  I had local Amish craftsmen custom build the windows and also custom cut and press the ribbed steel roofing panels for me (very inexpensively).  It is small, has no power, no running water, and no phones.  My idea of perfect.

Nicely crafted cabin,Ron.

Kildeer, that was my camper and it was a late 70's "Aliner" predecessor,I think the manufacturer was "Spartan". It was the only camper of its kind I had ever seen. All plexiglass and aluminum and folded down/set up in about 2 minutes. I sold the camper and took the money from it and the various award monies given me for "Police Officer of the Year" in 1985 to build the small cabin on the site. I have several trails now that are named for the hunting friends that shared the cabin,thus the name on the large sign, "The Trails". Hoppy,Mark,Richard,Nolen,Don---all have a trail sign on the place. It is a constant reminder to me of how fleeting Father Time is AND how fortunate I was to be a part of these friend's lives. Because honestly, I've been unsuccessful in finding fitting replacements to the point that I now hunt almost exclusively solo.

Ron, i love the looks of your camp! its small but perfectly suited for the purpose,hunting!
it looks very well built!
one question though, how is it heated? i didnt see a wood stove. you must a portable heater.

jamie
Title: Re: huntin camps??
Post by: Ron Bushong on January 10, 2008, 08:42:00 PM
Thanks fellers.

Jamie,
I originally intended to install a woodstove, but decided against because of lack of floor space.  The cabin is only 12'x16'.  I installed a small direct-vent propane heater that I run off 100# tanks.  It's mounted on the bottom of the wall between the "kitchen" and "dining room".  The combustion air is drawn in, and exhaust gases are vented out directly through the wall behind the heater.  The vent can be seen just below the bottom gable-end window in the pic of the outside of the cabin.
And in case anyone wonders about the facilities - we have a porta-crapper that I bought really cheap from one of the companies that delivers them to our jobsites.

Have a Great '08
Ron

A friend bought a 175 acre tract a mile back in the woods bordered by a timber company in 1989. He asked me to bow hunt it the first season and see if there were any deer on it. I set up the old wall tent and stayed the entire archery season there. I found a spring running and got my water. Ronnie(pictured) hunted two weekends. Does anyone else do that? Absolutely got so into the hunt routine I forgot I was married. And  I wonder why my wife divorced me after putting up with my sorry self for 27 yrs? LOL

I bought an old Dodge camper to use on the Dalton Highway in Alaska. I figured it would be beat all to hades by the rocks/truckers so planned on giving it away and flying home after the month long hunt. I got it ready by June. We decided to take it for a "trial run" out to CO before we made the "big trip" in it. My Lieutenant on the police department wanted to go but didn't want to tent camp so I took it out there for him. Keith Chastain,WAPITI bowyer, set up with us that year and the camper was a hit,particularly when the hailstones fell about every other day that year. Keith is the one with the western hat telling lies.

A hunting camp in Northern Michigan back when you could reasonably expect to see an occasional deer. Changes in habit and wildlife management practices over the past couple of decades have resulted in most of Michigan's whitetail population occupying the southern half of our state. Now a days, most of my "serious" hunting takes place behind the house.

These days, we still try to get up North for a week each fall, but more so for the sake of tradition and camp camaraderie than any serious attempt to take deer.

I used to get a lot of help at the cabin before the girls grew up and  were discovered by all the boys at school. They would fight over who would drive the little tractor. Now they fight over what clothes they are wearing on their dates. All this change in six short years!

North Fork of the Flathead, NW Montana, Jan. 2008.  My folks' cabin is one of my camps.  The game-cam picked up a big griz in the yard in January in almost 3 feet of snow.  Lots of mt. lion tracks in the yard.  My wife doesn't want the kids playing in the yard anymore.  I always pack bear spray when hunting whitetails up there.

Lots of snow in NW Montana this year.  Dad was up on the snowpile on the back porch trying to get a little light into the cabin, and climbed up onto my old hunting truck with the snowshoes...just walked right up.

We always seem to get rain or snow in SW Montana in September, so a few tarps over the tent are necessary.  Can you tell that I can't wait for September?
