Cooking in camp
« on: June 29, 2015, 10:52:57 AM »
I don't know if this is the correct forum but here goes...
I'm not talking about commercial outfits, but normal guys packing in out in the mountains camping or hunting etc..
This past elk season I packed another small wall tent for a cook tent should the weather turn bad. My reasoning was to not get the smell of food in the sleeping tent. My question is, and I know there are no 100% answers, but is this a needed precaution? As it turned out the weather was perfect and we cooked every meal outside. In this case it was a lot of wasted weight. Do you guys just cook in the sleep tent in bad weather? I'm wondering if a tarp or two would be just as beneficial if needed. The old man I bought it off of took it every year to cook in so that's what made me do it. Looking back, I don't know if it's necessary. What do you guys think? Thanks fellas

We just had a tarp for Late September Elk Hunts.  It survived a few Snow Squalls. 

Later Season the tent might be good insurance.  If It gets Windy in camp I'd have the tent.

Thanks Rocky. I think it's sort of a case by case deal. If the weather is bad then you'll wish you had the tent. If it's nice or like you said, not windy, then a tent is just extra weight. Thanks for the comment.

I think this says it all.
The convenience is site nice,  but do you really need it?

I guess that's the $64 question. You only need it when you need it.  :)
