I agree with the post above especialy if you are huntting in a ground blind not only do you alert them with sound but the fumes from the propane alert them also. those little "hot handz" work wonders they probibly will not keep you toasty warm but they will take the bite off and they are super cheap at lowes and wal-mart!

Good Hunting!!

Thanks for the advice on not using a heater, I was wondering if the fumes would be an issue. This was my first time deer hunting ever, so my father law was up at camp early to set all my stuff up and when I got there he showed me to my blind cranked the heater and took off so I didn't get many tips to start off with. It was around 35 to 40 degrees when I was out there and the pop up blind did a great job keeping me decently warm, I just figured using the heater is what hunters use to stay warm. Next year I will not be using one, once again thanks for the useful info!

Besides if something hapened that heather could catch your blind on fire. Then the deer would see you.

With as little knowledge I had on my first deer hunt I might as well have been on fire running thru the woods with bells on. Like I said earlier I really had no tips to go on other than don't move and don't make a peep and shoot if it has antlers. With all I've been learning the past couple weeks since I've been back I now know why my father in law put me way at the other end of his property as to not ruin his chances of a good deer. However from what I'm gathering you can only learn so much from research the rest will have to come with experience in the woods.

i have the same breed of squirrles around my stand. it's like they are doing it on purpose to get you all pumped up just to get to see you face when they hop around that tree. i put a scope on them sometimes to to have the satisfactioin of mentaly pulling the trigger and knowing i could have an instant squirrel burger if i wanted too.

Good Hunting!!

actually coleman makes a portable heater called the power cat that is safe to use in a tent or blind it uses ceramic and other componets to get hot but not start fires and i dont really notice any smell i got one for 25$ at walmart its good for the tent and i figure ice fishing

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Thats actually the heater I was using. It still a little noisey, but I really coudln't smell any fumes except when I first lit it. I don't think theres much of a fire hazard where I had it on the ground there was tall grass all around it and not one issue. I think next year I will go without it mostly for the noise issue.
