I have a 2-person Clam Trap Guide - old shelter. I use a Buddy Portable which gives 4000 & 9000 BTU. the only time I use the 9000 setting is to quickly warm up my hut or if air temp is sub-zero.  Donít overbuy.

Mr. Heater Portable Buddy Heater will be more than enough in a one man.

this, I have a small buddy for my 2 man, works great in windy frigid air, works too well if its above 20 and the sun comes out.

The portable would be great for your needs

Anyone use a non-propane type heater? I run a buddy heater in my one man and it is over-kill. A small, compact electric heater would be awesome

The Mr Heater Portable Buddy would be my choice..if applicable add a cross brace to the rear of the seat and hang the Portable Buddy ..when you run n gun be cognizant of the heater as you fold the shelters tent back .

I have a old Coleman 512 Catalytic Heater that I use in my Shappell 100 or Frabil pop-up. 

Can't control the output once it's running, so either open a window or throw the whole thing outside if it gets too warm.  ;)

I have had good luck with my Coleman Sport at heaters in my flip over tent. Not too much sand very convenient.

I don't use a heater- just getting out of the wind is enough for me, but this post got me thinking: I have a small backpacking lantern that hangs from a chain. It uses little butane cylinders. It sure warms up a backpacking tent quick- I bet it would be plenty for my Frabill Recon. Of course, you need to watch ventilation, but that is the same for any combustion. That is about the lightest I can think of, except for maybe a candle lantern. In a snow shelter, a single candle will raise the temperature to the point where you need to worry about the melting.

 I use a Coleman Compact Propane Lantern 5132-700 in my flip over shanty.  It has kept me warm on the coldest days out on the ice.  Bought it at a Walmart years ago, Cabela's have them for 29.99 now.

i couldnt imagine how warm it would be in my one man with a heater.  it would run me out im sure.  a sunny day can run me out of it alone.  i rarely fish in anything below zero though either.  neat tiny heaters posted!
