In my BA fly creek 1 man, I have enough room for my pack and boots in my vestibule, but the bow has to live outside.
    I agree. I know this is a different title but I use a REI Taj 3. It is a really nice 3 season 3 person (really 2 person) tent. It has two openings with two vestibules. Which is really nice when exiting in the middle of the night w/o crawling over your partner. Also your boots sit right there outside the door under the vestibule. That way they stay dry and yet don't stink up the tent. I really like this tent when sharing a hunt with a buddy. Basically when you split up the poles and stuff it isn't that bad as far as weight goes. would definitely recommend looking at this option if you hunt with a partner.

    Scott, what's the price on those Hilleberg's tents. Think I need to loom at one.

    Not cheap, but you probably wont ever have to buy another tent. The model in the picture is an Allak. I have a Kaitum 2 at the moment.

    When i have a chance i will post a few more pictures.

    I have used the Kifaru Paratarp in the past, but just ordered a Megatarp. I like the floorless design to eliminate having a floor to clean. I have a separate bathtub floor I hope will fit the Megatarp also for wet conditions. I don't have nearly as much experience high country camping as many of you do, but I like this design for the camping I do.

    Scott, I had an Akto years ago. I wouldn't recommend it for you. It's plenty long for you and me, but the sit up height is only 36". It's fine laying down, but you've got to crank your head to the side to sit. I'm 6'3" so it'll be worse for you.

    I think the LBO is probably the same weight or lighter anyway...

    Ditto on freestanding, also a full rainfly.
    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.
