I have a scheels giftcard so I was parousing through their website when I found this


anyone used one? I thought it looked pretty cool, and small enough I could bring it into the stand with me for those late December below 0 sits.

I don't know about that one, but I have the BlackCat model that puts out 2x the BTUs as the SportCat and it's just about enough for a 2-man tent, depending on how cold it is.

And Scheels says they're out of stock on the SportCat.

Better not let BillyB and Floyd see this thread...They'll tell you to straighten your skirt and just suck it up, LOL.

You need to find a big Nebraska girl to keep you warm.

Bluecat might know some.

Yeah, I'd also go with more BTUs. Never used a camping heater, but have used space heaters indoors, and believe me, more BTUs are mo' better.

I like the me buddy heaters. Have them in our blinds.
5.) Floyd - 01/27/2014
I have one for the wife and kid. They like it. I also have the big mr heater one.

Like Swampy says, I don't use one for myself. I don't have a big Ford Bronco or two to haul them around.

More BTUs the better like swampy says.

I kind of liked the Sportcat because it was so compact, easy to throw in my backpack. I didn't look at the BTU's too closely though, thats a good point.
7.) NEBigAl - 01/27/2014
BTU's stands for "British Thermal Units" though, since this is 'Murica Im probably not gonna listen to those goddamn redcoats.

Would you like to super-size your Freedom Fries?

Of course! Anything else would be...uncivilized...
10.) NEBigAl - 01/28/2014
Well I bought it tonight at scheels, kind of on a whim. I figured it should do me fine, all I plan on doing is taking it into the stand and blind with me, it should be just small enough to not be a complete pain in the ass.

Hmm….I guess I don't know how to post videos…lol

Anyhow, this is great for the ice fishing blind. As always, make sure you have a lil ventilation.
