Just killing some time at work and was wondering what types of camps people setup for deer season. I've been hunting out of a hard sided trailer for the past 6 years or so on state land. I've always wanted to make the trek to the UP and do a tent camp for a week. This is our setup. Three beds the furnace and a closet is about all we have room for in this little guy but it gets the job done. Lets see some photos!

My brother and a buddy picked up a new to us camper, although I think it was made sometime during the mid 80's. Our camp has become over run with women (non hunters) and has gone from a good traditional deer camp to the weekend hang out spot. I think this camper will be too rough for the women to want to hang out for very long. They are always welcome but they don't need to take up residency like they did at the other camp.

Yep. Aunts and cousins who basically came in and took over. We even get the occasional youngster, far too young to hunt. Once this started happening a few years ago guys started dropping out and not coming back to camp. Something had to be done when we were told to keep it down playing euchre because there was a kid in the other room trying to sleep.:dizzy:

The last couple years it's been just a few of us guys and even more mother hens pecking around.:rant:

Oh, that sucks. We actually took the battery out of one guys phone and hid it because he kept answering calls from his woman.

Not really a "camp" per se, but that's what I call it. In the thumb, on Lake Huron. My property is about 7 miles inland (no buildings).

Front porch


My drinking, eating, playing cards and TV room:


Garage and guest house:


Cocktail chairs overlooking the lake (doubles as a duck/goose blind):


Looking up from the shore:


Sorry guys, no tents for this guy.

No recent pics but here are a few from 2005. Basic layout still the same, minus the camper on the left of the first pic.



Back camper is called the Lodge - serves as the dining/living room.


Portable Sauna


Need to come up with a better setup but this is better than leaning against a tree.
