Hot Tent for a spring bear hunt

I am heading to Kuiu Island in the spring of 2021 for a black bear hunt. We are hoping to have some form of hot tent setup. I have a lightweight vented propane stove that I planned on bringing for a heat source since I would assume everything else would be too wet to burn.

My buddy has a seek outside Cimmarron that we are thinking of bringing I am just not sure how much of an issue with condensation we will run into?

I have a cabelas instinct 8 man double well tent but getting it to alaska and to where we are hunting would be alot of work.

Does anyone have experience with using a single wall floor-less hot tent in this climate and if so would you do it again or have any tips?

If I were you,I would use your buddies tent and stove do to weight, it's nice to be able to dry your stuff out. Its Alaska, and rain is always a possiblity, never been to Kuiu, but lived in Anchorage a few year.

The main reason for the stove would be just to dry out gear, we would be hunting the tidal flats and likely getting a little bit wet each day so we are just wanting somewhere to dry off gear.

If you pitch on wet ground condensation WILL be an issue. I would have a liner that seek offers if I was going.

I use a wood stove every year. No matter how wet, there is fuel to be found. Heat dries $hit out and adds comfort.
