For most of us heading to the woods, it is going to be a hot opener weekend. Last year I finally gave up on my hackberry tree at one of my stands and moved in a ground blind. I was dreading sitting in a hot box so decided to do something about it...oh the things we do for hunting grin

$7 red igloo
$4 flange and 90
$7 amazon fan
Four bottles of frozen water
It blows cold air!

Have you tested it to see how long your ice lasts? With that small of a chest, I don't see it lasting too long.

Here's a tip - fill the cooler about 2/3 full of water and set it in the deep freezer until frozen solid. Lasts a lot longer than cube ice. Haven't tried the frozen water bottles.


Silver spurs and gold tequila
keep me hanging on.
Pretty girls and old cantinas
give me shelter from the storm.

I like it. I have 2 of those fans in 2 different blinds. Even without the ice they make a difference.

That won't work with that hole he cut in the side to mount the 90. My next camp AC will only have holes in the lid just for this reason.

I looked at doing it that way but decided I would leave these in the stands and I can carry the frozen bottles in my back pack up
