They do it because there are people who pay it.

Ice fishing "bungalows" are a big thing locally here. You pay to rent a sleeper hut and stay on the ice. It's a cash cow. 10 week season, average hut sleeps 6. An operation will have anywhere from 10-30 huts.. they are generally @ full occupancy for weekends. Going rate is 200 / head. The "operators" don't do a whole lot, really.. they might transport you out to the hut or might just escort you out. They check on you 1-2x a day to make sure everything's good and that's about it 90% of the time. 1-2 guys do the running. You're paying for the hut. Not so much the service. The operations that have licenses for commercial huts usually do it as off season revenue.. it's a "side" to their main summer operation. Cabins / camp grounds / fishing charters.

There are guys who (unprovoked) promote tips/gifts to the "operators" out of "appreciation"... generally citiots who don't get out much.
