We don't actually hunt but our Rhodesian Ridgebacks do hunt-trial. Every trial day has always started after a night (or more) in the trailer. Nowhere near you however ... PA & MI mainly.

We have done early deer season, muzzle loader. We use it turkey and squirrel hunting when the weather is not so cold. The camp grounds close early here and where hunt sometimes is hard to get in and out once it snows. My husband took the camper hunting once without me. I was not allowed to even look in it until he cleaned it so I told him he needs to find a man camper, one that I am not allowed to touch.

Yes that's what my 17' Bigfoot has turned into. However it is not the 4-season so I'm now starting to look at trading it across for a 17' with the winter package. If my wife even thought I had considered using the 25' Bigfoot for hunting I expect I'd end up living in the 17'!

We lived in Montana last year where all the guys were living in campers with artic bottoms not to hunt but so they could work in the oil fields.

YUP-- that's the reason I bought ours in the first place, I was getting too old to sleep in a tent. Then the vacation stuff came into play....

Larry, I also came to hard shell camping because tent hunting is too tough. I liked tent camping, but I was hunting and there wasn't enought time after hunting 2 -3 times a day, to operate a tent camp.

Trailer: Bigfoot 21 ft
Posts: 24
Hunting is the main reason I bought my 21' Bigfoot. For the last two years, I leave Texas and drive to Montana. I meet some others there. We bird hunt across Montana from East to West. Then we move over to Idaho to hunt chuckars, quail and hungarian partridge. After a couple of weeks, we go back to Montana for pheasant season. In all I spend 7 or 8 weeks in the great white north. After I return to Texas I make a short week or two trip to Kansas for some more pheasant hunting. The weather can get awful cold either in Montana or Kansas. I stay cozy in my bigfoot which has the winter package. Some of the places we stay can be considered boondocking. I'm the only one with a fiberglass trailer. The other guys have a mix from pop-up tent campers to big 5th wheelers.

How was the pheasant hunting in Montana this year and which part of Montana do you hunt? I'm going down to the Conrad area next week to try the pheasant.

A business partner and I spent about 10 years cooking at a hunting camp about 2 miles from Old Mexico. I concocted the RoadHippo to get me into rough areas while having some creature comforts for these aging bones. The Casita / FUSO combination works great.
You can see the Casita in the background of this typical early morning scene of Jack making biscuits.

We don't go as far west as Conrad. We start around Plentywood in extreme northeast Montana. We hunt the highline one might say. We go west to Havre, then go to Western Idaho for a few weeks of chuckar hunting. We hunt the Block Mgmt areas.
Last year was not very good for pheasants. Based on early hunting, this year should be much better. The only problem is there are too many hunters when pheasant season opens. Should be better now. If you are serious about pheasants, go to North Dakota. 1000 times as many pheasants as you will ever find in Montana. I think that a lot of the Montana birds are planted by the state.

Jim,

That's quite the rig you have in the background. Thanks for the info. If I decide to hunt Idaho I'll get in contact with you again.

Not my post, I think you are referring to HerseyPA's post. He has the Casita / FUSO combination. He calls it the RoadHippo. Pretty cool rig.
I have a Bigfoot 21 which I quite like.
