    Default Make it yourself tent stove?

    Just got a good canvas tent and I intend to have a stove for it for next hunting season. I need a stove that's light and small enough to be packed on a quad without having to make extra trips back and forth to my little patch of swamp. Before I shell out the 250 for one of those collapsible ones, does anyone know of a safe, effective and small homemade variant? I've heard a few people say you can make one out of an ammo can but they get super hot. Anyone ever built something small that worked?

    Default Stay warm and Satisfy big appetites with Silvertip Stoves

    If you are looking for a light-weight wood (or pellet) stove that works great for canvas tents, you will want to see our website at www.silvertipstoves.com. Silvertip stoves have a damper on the front to control temperature. Stove pipe, legs and accessories fit inside the firebox for compact and convenient storage. In-line spark boxes, spark arresters and dampers provide an additional advantage for safety features.

    Making your outdoor experiences safe and memorable,

    Highestview,
    Do a search on this site. Somewhere here in the past a person had posted all sorts of home made stoves for just such a purpose. Many were made out of older 5 or 6 gal metal boat gas cans. Others were made from propane bottles. They were built by someone in the bush and and many pics were posted. Good luck
