    Sportsman incubators usually have either 2 or 6 1" holes in the back panel. The number of holes depends on the year of manufacture. They are just above the floor at the bottom and about an inch down from the top. Each hole is provided with a rectangular metal flap that has a screw at ane corner which allows it to pivot to open or close as much of the vent space as you require.
    I just went to the GQF site and looked at the current model instructions and see they now have an even different vent arrangement. It is shown on page 4 of these instructions. CABINET MODEL8.pdf
