I am going to go hunting out of a tent and tarp in Michigan's Upper Panisula at the end of November. My only real fear is starting a fire and then not being able to control it. I plan on digging a large pit (3' in dia.) about 6" deep and apply wood cut at about 18"-24" in length. Any better, proven, ideas? What about sleeping with a fire going, (it's doing to be cold)?Hopefully my friend and I will be at least 5 miles from a road and any other hunters, as it will be twards the end of the deer season. I just don't want to be the reason that the fire planes are flying! Thanks.
