If you need one of those cheap 3-legged folding hunting seats, they are on clearance right now for $3 and some change. They were already dirt cheap to begin with but now a little cheaper and there were plenty of them when I bought one yesterday. They hardly take up any space or weigh much at all, so I will bring mine in the woods next time instead of hauling in my bulky folding chair.

Is that the Academy in Cool Springs? If so, my wife is over there now and I may have her pick me one up.

Are they comfortable?

I have one that I bought several years ago that weighs a lot for its size - it has a built-in swivel joint, and I pretty much hate it. It's too small and digs into your tailbone.

If you'd recommend it, what's the brand? I might buy one online, since I live nowhere near there.

Thanks \:\)

I sat in one for about 9 hours opening day and it was pretty comfortable. Just be careful about the soil it's in. It has a small footprint, so if you're in soft soil, you're gonna sink ... possibly one leg more than another. \:\)

I would about as soon have boils on my butt as have to sit on one of those. I threw one away I used to dove hunt on...and kept falling off. About the only time they sit level is on solid rock.

I have some that are comfortable and one that isn't. If the two my wife are bringing me aren't comfy, I reckon I'll just use them to beat my kids with...either way, they only cost $3

yes they have very small legs/feet so they would sink into soft ground. I will use mine in the homemade treestand which does not yet have a built in seat, and is a tight squeeze for the big folding chair. Plus I weigh 130 so I aint much wear on the seat lol
