Wall tent vs. tipi (teepee)? After having been on a few WY antelope/muley hunts, I'm considering buying a wall tent. However, after doing some searching, I keep coming up with tipi's making a wave of sorts. Other than obvious shape- does anyone know of the differences or advantages one has over the other? From an historical perspective, the wall tent seems to reflect our (Anglo-Sax) design of what a house should look like. Whereas the tipi may have other (design?) properties -of which I'm not aware- that might make it better for mountain living for a week. If you're using a tipi for hunting, I'd love to hear about that too!

Well I’ve done a little homework and by that I mean I called John, a sales associate at Sportsmen’s Warehouse and asked him, what is the benefit of a wall tent. He was pretty short and concise. Warmth. The heavy material makes them a lot warmer. Also, you can put a stove in it if you get a company to cut a hole so that the flue pipe can go through.
