      I am looking into a new hunting seat that is light comfy and portable…I like my summit viper seat for my climber and was thinking of a system like that…I have gone threw a bunch of different seats but none are good for a long sit ( i end up having to move around to much for deer hunting on ground level)….so let me know what you use and why you like it…

      thanks

      I use a 5 gallon bucket with a pillow on top ha! I like it because its cheap, if not free. To camo it up I just slip an old hunting jacket over it. I usually put it up next to a good size trunk and that is my backrest. You can also put a few extra things in the bucket if you need to.

      You can see my home made seat on the thread titled “Camp and Hunting Seat” but when I need something really light weight I use a small tripod stool. They are relatively cheap (just got a new one from WalMart) and I am comfortable in it with my back to a large tree trunk. A small pillow can be added for more comfort.

      I’ve used several over the years. I now prefer the ones with a back rest but then you have to spin in the seat to shoot. Recently I bought a simple “Tree Seat” that straps around a tree and you use the tree for a back rest. I like it because you can set it up high like a bar stool, then with minimal movement be standing up in front of it. It also means you have automatic cover behind you as you move (the tree it’s attached to). It’s lightweight and cheap and easy to sling over your back as you ‘hop’ from tree to tree. The downside of this type of seat of course is you need a tree. whichever you choose make sure you are comfortable. It’s all pointless if you can’t sit still in it, one of the reasons I stay away from a folding, backless seat unless I’m in a pop-up blind.
