re: propane heater in deer stand


Was wondering the same thing after reading someone had it going in the stand. Seems they would smell it down wind.

re: propane heater in deer stand


I use i small heater when i take my son if it's 30% or less and always try and hunt stands that are down wind from food plots. Never had a problem that i can remember cause most the time if its a shooter deer it never gets close enough to matter.

re: propane heater in deer stand


I've used the mr. Buddy propane heaters in box stands before. Had a mature buck come into the plot with it going. Its same smell as a Thermacell which I've used bow hunting and shot deer at 10 yds. Deer don't mind different smells. They mind human scent like B.O. more than unnatural scents

re: propane heater in deer stand


I picked up a Coleman 1500 btu heater and after reading that a lot of people use them I decided to give it a go and just turned mine on. I'm down wind of my food plots (8-10 mph wind in my face) and 15 feet off the ground so I think I'm good to go. I can only smell it if I put my face down to it. I read the smell goes away after the first tank

Went to go use mine this morning to find the tank empty. It teased me for about a minute. Cold hands trying to use iPhone now.

Well if the deer are downwind they are going to smell you anyway. So- hunt the wind, use your heater and you will not freeze your balls off.

I use a Mr. Buddy in my box stand. I actually bought a little adapter that lets you refill the small propane bottles from a large one, which can really save you some money in the long run...

I agree I don't think they mind it. I also know guys that pretty much chain smoke on the stand and still see deer

Used one once. Couldn't get it lit right away and when it did I almost turned the stand into a bomb

I was reluctant at first, but I've killed several deer with the heater going.
