Something to sit on in a blind

9 posts in this topic

Would like some input on whats worked for you guys for sitting on in blinds. I usually end up too low or too high and more often than not uncomfortable either way. I don't know if blind dimensions vary much but I have an Ameristep brickhouse I believe.

Cooter, is the blind there all the time, or how far do you have to walk to set it up from your vehicle if not? I have a few blinds set up all season long that are hub style like your brickhouse. I have found one of those plastic lawn chairs you can get from pretty much anyware to work the best. I bought them in a dark, drab green color. With practice, I can shoot with my back fully against the back of the chair but I prefer to lean forward and rest on the edge while shooting. It's just the right height for my blinds at least. And very comfortable versus a stool or fold up chair.

Well I normally sit on my butt grin.gif sorry had to.. I got a real nice fold up chair at gander. It's camo and has a shoulder strap, and a bag underneath the seat part to put stuff in. I also got a butt pad thing that has foam in it that I can adjust just by opening a valve and to fill it back up with air you just open the valve all the way and it expands again.

The blind won't be moved for several weeks so is more or less permanent - I'll have to check out those lawn chairs. Need to get out to Gander or Scheel's as well - sounds like I'm gonna want something with a backrest? Just as long as it doesn't interfere with shooting the bow. Something adjustable in heigth would be slick. Thanks, later.

I also use the camo chairs you can get from gander or scheels cooter. Check em out though some are a little taller than others and depending on how tall you are your legs can get cramped a bit if they are too low. As far as for shooting out the blind I have never run across a problem. Go for the comfort and price gl.

The nice thing about the hard plastic lawn chair if it is the right height for you and your blind, is that it is extremely comfortable and lets you draw and aim in a little more than 180 degrees around you. On most of them, the arm rests only come out about half way along the seat, so you slide forward and can draw 180 plus no problem. And it's nice to be relaxed and comfortable - leads to less moving around, which is what I'd when perched on a stool. With the plastic chair, I can just sit back and rotate my head slowly looking for the deer. Plus, they are extremely quiet. Nothing to move or groan when you shift around on them. Not saying the camp chairs do that as I couldn't say but there is none of it with the plastic chair. Good luck whatever you decide on!

Double Bull Blinds makes a chair that I would recomend. It's a small little chair and didn't seem that bad. I found them at scheels last time I was in there. Wouldn't hurt to give them a a good look.

Cabelas has a decent folding tri-pod type chair. Not the most comfortable, but compact and lightweight. Slip it in with the doublebull.
