scent free heating

With archery season in full swing, and the weather getting cooler what is the best way to heat camp and not cause unwanted oders. I have a fireplace at my camp but seems to smoke in the camp alot I also have kerosun heaters but you know how the smell I thought about buying a propane heater. What do you use?

Re: scent free heating

i wouldnt worry about smoke, its a natural thing and very common, i would burn the wood if i was that concerned about scent

I saw a propane heater on sale at Northern Tool today for $219. looked like it was pretty good sized, that is what we used for years, no odor, we have one in camp in W.Va.just use a small tank,like 40# ssize..

Propane and electric heat have little odor. I wouldn't worry about wood smoke, deer smell wood smoke every day, but the fireplace wouldn't hold fire overnight and you will wke up cold and that stinks..

Re: scent free heating

I agree on the wood smoke. We hang our clothes outside and it is not uncommon for the wind to blow smoke down around our clothes. It never seemed to bother the deer at all. Have you thought about a fireplace insert? That would probably hold an all night fire

Re: scent free heating

I've read where some bowhunters are intentionally "smoking" their clothing.

Best advice is to keep your hunting clothing in garbage bags and outside, then shower, if possible, just before going out hunting. Try to keep the wind in your favor and you should be fine.

We have 2 electric heaters and a Mr. Heater 30k BTU propane heater with a 100# tank. The propane heater is wall mounted, has a built in thermostat, and cost about $235. The tank was additional.

Re: scent free heating
