How to Choose the Best Hunting Tent

Being able to choose the perfect hunting tent for your journey isn’t easy, to be honest. It can stress you out sometimes! But you have nothing to be concerned about as we have jotted down some of the important features to keep in mind while purchasing your hunting assistant:

Seasonality:

While buying a tent for hunting you must be sure of your preference of the season you would like to hunt in. If you are a summer hunter then you should look for 3-season tents which are in general than 4-season tents. Why? Well, 4-season tents are meant for rough use so they have thicker protection to them. If you are not sure about the weather then we suggest you go for the 4-season tent as you will be able to make use of it in all rough seasons. However, do keep in mind that it is typically expensive. All-season tents will definitely prove to be a good choice as it provides specialized characteristics in all weathers.

Sleeping space:

The most demanding thing after a good day or night of hunting is a peaceful sleep. If your tent is too compact for the people in it then you will find yourself constantly hitting the walls and feeling squished up. To avoid that try counting out the number of people who will be accompanying you on your hunting expedition. Don’t forget to keep up the gears in mind as they might take up some significant space. Try finding a tent with built-in pockets for storing your gears and essential things.

Camouflage:

Hunting isn’t easy in itself and when your prey is aware of your existence it gets almost impossible to hunt anything. To avoid this you need to look for a camouflage tent. The tent’s fabric pattern will be able to easily hide within the surroundings that your prey won’t notice at all! The more your tent is identical to the environment, the better. But, if the area you are hunting in is too dangerous then you might want to go with a brighter colored tent as they can be spotted easily.

Fabric:

When it comes to the building material for hunting tents, cotton does seem like a good option. It is highly thick which equips it with the power of resisting water, wind, or any rough weather. Unfortunately, there are a few back-draws to this choice of fabric. Cotton is quite heavy so you might have trouble moving it around and setting it, it gets molded easily and it is quite expensive. On the other hand, polyester or nylon are great options too. They are not only lightweight but also water-resistance and less expensive. As a plus point, they don’t grow molds. Yet, thicker tents made up of cotton can be the best option if you are planning to keep your tent set for a much longer time during your hunting as it will last longer during rough conditions like storms.

Weather-protected:

The weather will obviously differ according to the place you are hunting in. It might be really sunny, snowy, or rainy. No matter what you need to make sure that you are well protected during any situation. Most manufacturers provide tents with protective layers, flooring, mesh, and aluminum poles to keep you safe. Try looking for a tent that provides you the optimum protection.

Price:

After getting every factor sorted you must see the pricing of the tent. Normal professional tents can cost over $500 whereas non-professional tents only cost about $100-$500. How will you know if it is worth it? Well, it actually depends upon your usage time. If you are going to use the tent many times for hunting then you should go for the high-range ones as they will be durable for a longer time period. But, if you are intending to use it occasionally then why not buy a cheaper one and go easy on your pocket? Stay on your budget and keep an eye for the specific characteristics that you require on your tent and you are good to go!

 

Final Thoughts:

Your hunting experience can be simplified by the type of tent you choose to buy. After going through our list of the best hunting tents, you should be well aware of the type of tent you are looking for. Wasting no more time rush to the wilderness and commence your adventure hunters!

 

FAQs:

1. Is nylon or polyester fabric good for hunting tents?

Answer: This depends upon some factors like weight, cost, and durability. If you are planning on a long hunting expedition then cotton tents are your optimum pick.

2. How do I clean my hunting tent?

Answer: The cleaning procedure is pretty much the same for all stripes of tents. Note that, they aren’t designed to withstand the clean cycle of the washing machine of your home. You can rather clean it in a bathtub using water, soap, and tent cleaner.

3. How often do I have to clean a hunting tent?

Answer: It’s better to clean up your tent after every camping trip. If it is exposed to the wilderness more then you have to clean it much often.
