Chair for ground blind

I've seen a couple options, but would like to find more. Looking to spend less than $100. Needs a back and be able to swivel. I'm hiking in and out of SGL, so portability is a concern as well.

Re: Chair for ground blind

Best thing would be to take a drive to the closet Bass Pro or Cabelas and actually try a few out before you buy one. A piece of gear like that can be tough to buy online without actually having a chance to see how well it fits you. Heck, take a ride on Sunday since you can't hunt!!!

Re: Chair for ground blind

I use a pop-up doghouse blind with a folding camp chair. It's not heavy, maybe 10# but is easy to carry bungee corded to the blind and backpack.
The chair does not swivel but is very roomy and the arms on the chair are wide enough you easy have 220 degree motion swing. I use mine mainly for duck and goose hunting and found it comfortable for long sits. The one arm also has a large cup holder. Sets up in seconds,quietly and makes no squeaks when you move around changing positions.
Is rated for 300 lbs and cost me about $60.00.
Good Luck

Re: Chair for ground blind

Lol, I use a 5 gallon bucket turned over with a thick butt pad I got at wally world. Simple, cheap, you can carry your supplies into the woods in it. If you want to leave it in the blind it's not a fortune if it walks off and I have found it to be the perfect height for me to shoot from my blind. Just killed my archery buck from a blind Saturday...sitting on a bucket!

Your just jealous because I've been chatting online with babes all day!!

I like one of those swivel seats with a back to it. They're comfortable and you can easily turn around in the swivel in case the animal comes behind you.

I will never understand why people can be so blinded by a liar.

Re: Chair for ground blind

Portability may be an issue but if your blind is going to be in place for awhile, you may want to look at a swiveling office chair. They swivel, recline AND they are height adjustable. Just pull the casters off and they sit flat on the ground. I went to a local goodwill store and got two of them for $7 bucks apiece. They are REAL comfy in the blind.
