Little Buddy heater

http://www.gandermountain.com/modperl/pr...06#ReviewHeader

has anyone used one??

I'm looking for feedback. How long does one bottle last?

Also, do you think the sound/smell will scare deer away in a tree stand???

!!

Re: Little Buddy heater

I cant tell you about the Flander Mt. one, but I can tell you about the Coleman Golfcat heater. I bot one of these a few years ago based on a recommendation from an "old timer" at my gun club. This came with a holder that fits in a cart cup holder (which is handy when you cut a hole up in your stand to stick it in) and it also has a set of metal "feet" to hold it at an angle.

This has an electric start. It uses a AA battery and you just hold down the button....so it's not like starting a grill where you have this loud BANG to generate the spark.

The heat it gives off "shoots straight forward" and it works very well. The unit has a low and high setting.

As far as propane use, it depends on how often you are running it. If you run it on high, I'm gonna guess it will go thru a short fat tank in less than a day. But I've ran it on low for a day and not run out of gas.

I've not bot one of those refill gizmo's but that's probably a good idea.

Re: Little Buddy heater

I have one of the Coleman heaters, think it is called Balck Cat. Very similar to the golf cat. My experiences have been similar to what has been posted

Re: Little Buddy heater

I have a little buddy. I use it in my elevated box that is 8' x 8'. One cylinder lasts about a day when it is really cold. I never keep it running steady - still dress in warm clothes including insulated coveralls. Just use it enough to cut the cold a little. This past season one cylinder was enough. Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri pm, Sat, Fri pm, Sat.

Re: Little Buddy heater

I use a full size Mr Buddy in a large two man ground blind.

One cylinder lasts most of the day; using it heaviest in the morning and lighter around mid day. But I usually stash a few extra cylinders around as my blind is up all season.

Smell, maybe but not noticable to humans. this blind killed 3 deer this year, all over 100 yards, so maybe if it smells it doesn't carry that far.

Re: Little Buddy heater

I have a couple also and they work fine. Figure on two fuel cylinders if you sit all day.

Re: Little Buddy heater

Keep one on the boat in the winter, get's it pretty toasty inside. No complaints.
