I didn't put this in the backpack hunting section because I am not going to carry a tent on my back. In Idaho you are not allowed to hunt on a quad in the places I go. The rules do allow riding a quad in to set up a camp and then hunting from that camp. Our intent is to ride 10 miles into an area we used to hunt and setup a camp utilizing the quads. We may even tow a quad trailer. Weight of the tent is not an issue but I think it should still be smaller than any decent tent we already have. My current tents are not 4 season so I wouldn't want to use them if it gets really cold. Plus my best tent now is huge and not appropriate. We have talked about doing this for 5 years or so but we don't have some gear I would want and the tent comes first IMHO. Not going this year but next year is being planned now. So for around $500 is there something you guys would recommend? Any brands to look for? My son now has a nice Kodiak tent we have used in the snow and it was fine but it is way bigger than we need for a few nights on top of a mountain. It may still be our best choice for now.
