Something to sit on in a blind

Recommended Posts

Cooter

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.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
