I have always wanted to camp in the winter. I have several early spring and late fall trips and yes, I have camped in the snow but not during the winter with cold temps. I am planning on making a hot stove out of a metal 5 gallon bucket and using my Double Bull Blind Horse as a tent. I know that will work, thick material and a heater. I have already spent many a day in that down to single digit temps just using a propane heater but not a stove. The other idea I had I got when I was camping this spring in my little tent. It got down to 39 degrees that night and honestly until the small fire I had burnt out I was more than warm in my mid weight sleeping bag. I thought along with a long fire I could fold over the bug screen, in this tent. Add reflective tarp/survival blanket to the back wall as well as clog the vents if I needed to. A wool blanket on the ground with some reflectics on top and then my cold weather bag. I could then drop a sheet of plastic over the opening in front and raise the tarp and put at more of an angle if I plan on getting snow. I would probably run a pole over it and set up a small lean to frame and put my tarp over it and tuck the tent under if it is supposed to snow a lot or just go without. Here is my tent, do you think it would work? I think it would almost be too hot for most temps as it is a very small space to heat but I think it would work well for winter. Here is my little tent that I think would work. I paid $35 for this from Sportsmens Guide several years ago. I should have bought another for my son as this thing is pretty sweet for the money. Swap out the heavy poles for old carbon arrows and its a packable low budget tent.
