Subject: Re: DIY large hoot tubes

Post:

Is there a way to make a hoot tube so I could use it over a campfire? It's
kind of a personal project I've been thinking of for a long time. Possibly
stovepipe with wire mesh inside and some sort of pole extended out away from
the fire to hold it.
Any ideas?

It would be a great camping trick!
