How To Build An Igloo

For many of us it has been a long, cold and snowy winter. A lot of us really don’t care about that, especially if your a winter hunter. We’re not a bunch of sissy metro-sexuals who worry about getting salt stains on those fancy shoes. Heck, if you’re like me then you’ve spent many hours perched up in a tree with blowing winds or on the crest of a hill, watching across the valley, lying in waist-deep snow when it’s 30 below. That’s what we do when we hunt.

So, for those of you that do prefer the hunting lifestyle, have you ever thought about building an igloo? I used to build then in my back yard simply by piling up all the snow, packing it down, then tunneling inside and carving out an inner section that I could use as an igloo.

But what about the true definition of building an igloo. Right, I am talking about taking snow blocks and building it in the traditional fashion. Ever tried it? I have heard there is an art to building an igloo.

Maybe this is the year to give it a shot. And, to learn just how to do it, check out this great video I came across.  It will show you just how to build an igloo.

We may just give this a try out for ourselves and see how it works. Let us know if you try it because we are curious to see anything you come up with.
