Fellas I’m trying to come to a decision about what to do about a tent for deer season this year. My hunting property is about 40 minutes away from my house. The last two years, I’ve been driving back and forth each night. I don’t mind the driving, but that’s extra expense for fuel and wear and tear on my truck. The gravel road to my property is pretty dang rough. And apparently it’s disruptive to my wife and my little boy when I’m getting up and leaving super early each morning. So my wife says I need to camp out at the property a couple nights at a time to reduce all the coming and going at the house. I would be camping by myself, which I’m not opposed to doing, but I don’t want to be miserable. I want to be warm, dry, and comfortable. I don’t own a tent though. My wife suggested I get my father in laws tent, which is your typical Coleman style nylon tent. What I would consider a “summer” tent. I have no idea if it leaks and I have no idea if there’s even going to be any chance of rain during deer season either though. My other thought is whether I should just bite the bullet and buy a good quality canvas tent, like a Kodiak or something. They are about $500, but seem to get rave reviews. If I had a good quality tent, I could use it in the future for possible elk hunts or things like that. The wife is definitely not on board with buying a cheap camper, I’ve already tried that. So do I roll the dice with a free nylon Coleman type tent this year or should I spend a little money and get a high quality tent?
