This is what I'm going to for both blinds. Add 20 pound propane cylinder (and a spare) and never be cold again.

I love em some talk crap about them no telling how many times I've heard the old saying "that ain't huntin" but the way I see it the more comfortable you can make it the longer you can sit and the quiteryou are im sitting in my Christmas present its a tower built out of the stuff they build walk in coolers with the walls and roof are fully insulated and about 6 inches thick closeable windows and my old trusty Coleman Sportcat (which unfortunately has been discontinued) at full blast it's freezing outside and everything has a thin sheet of ice but I'm getting hot and thinking of removing a layer to cool off. I have a couple on Mr Heater's but I don't care for them they only have one setting (full blast) and that's if you can get them to stay lit in the first place. Last season I went on a morning hunt after not getting any sleep the night before and after I gave up on seeing any deer I took a nap in the floor of the stand before I drove home I have one of those big Mr Heaters in that stand and my leg got too close fortunately I didn't touch the heater and it didn't burn my pants but I had a 3rd degree burn on my leg so far the only drawback to a stand heater I've had, however if you don't ventilate the stand you can get aspixiated so you do have to be careful and make sure there is a little airflow in the stand.

I am 29 yrs old, when i was a kid we hunted a place where tons of guys did that. There was an old coffee can and rubbing alcohol bottle in every stand. I remember asking my dad what they were back then, he never used em

This wasn't a thread about which one to get. Was just curious if any on here actually used the can style heaters.

I have mostly Coleman catalytic heaters, but have a medium sized Mr Buddy in the big blind. And had to buy the smallest Mr Buddy for one stand, since I couldn't get another Coleman.

I quit hunting in any blind with no roof and windows. I spent enough decades frozen stiff. Had to take my KaBar and chip my frozen tail out of a metal blind seat years ago. I have earned my heater and swivel chair.

Heater buddy...nice and warm in single digits if you have a well-built blind! If you are in a tripod, you are screwed no matter what when it gets this cold!

I would be the guy doing the Richard Pryer impersonation running out of the deer blind while on fire. Open flames ain't for me.

I use a small single burner stove with the screw on bottle that sets down in an old wellbucket. Keep an old chimney cap that set around burner if I want to cover flame. Take chimney cap off and heat up whatever. Felt good this week.
