Ice Shanty or Darkhouse:
A darkhouse is a facility that blocks out outside light so the spearing fisher can see through the ice. A darkhouse can be as simple as a blanket or a tent or a wood building or a trailer on wheels designed to have access to the ice in some manner.
This ice shanty or Dark House (no windows) belongs to Jay McEvers from Vergas Minnesota and he is an avid Decoy Carver.
