My wife loves the heat and the ambiance of the fire. She does a good job running it when I am not around. I do all the css, cleaning, and maintenance of the stove which is fine. She has decided she would like to try turkey hunting with me this spring. I can't wait it will be her first hunting experience. There are plenty of birds around and I can tell she is looking forward to trying it. I often spend an unreasonable amount of time hunting and fishing!
