Late Season: Shelters and Stoves
This summer I bought the Scarp 1 and got to test it out on a couple different trips in ND. One trip was pretty chilly. It's a great shelter, but, when Nov rolls around in ND, it's damn cold. I would like to be out there hunting, and staying off the roads, in late Nov/Early Dec. Please correct me if I'm wrong in my thinking, but I'm thinking in order to have a comfortable hunt that time of year up here, a guy needs a shelter with some sort of heat source. I've hunted from base camp type set ups for years and the propane heaters work great. As do the big wood burning stoves in outfitter tents... But I'm looking for a backcountry set up. It's getting tougher and tougher to get guys to go on these hunts, and it's much easier if I'm going solo to just deal with a nice, light set up.
My search has led me to many ti pi style shelters, and them Ti backpacking wood stoves. I see there are square set ups, and round ones that roll up. Specifically I've been looking at Seek Outside products. Have any of you much experience with late season set ups such as these?
What do you guys use/recommend I look into? Or do you tough it out without a heat source and beef up the sleeping bag and thermals?
Kifaru is super lightweight and very strong to hold up winds
Seek Outside is my choice.

I have a kifaru 4 man teepee. the teepee and small stove are packable for one guy. Alittle heavy for one but can be done. I have weathered decent snowdumps and high winds with mine. I would highly recommend it for backcountry solo hunting with heat. or with another guy. 3 guys in the 4 man teepee won't happen unless they are midgets.
Kifaru sawtooth with a small stove. Bulletproof setup! Great for two guys and gear.
