Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

What do you sit on in the woods while turkey hunting? My arse sure hurts after an hour or two sitting against a tree.

The seat attached to the vest I use is just about shot. Not sure it was ever great, but I do LOVE the vest it is attached to. What do you guys sit on? Want to keep the vest but maybe replace the seat, or the measley stuffing inside. Any thoughts?

Well, I got a BIG Fat bottom. I never thought about being Blessed for it being so big...Lol

I do carry a Black Plastic Trash bag to sit on when it is wet.

I have lower, back pain, and can't sit still to long.
I got this, at Wal-Mart, I think it was about $20.00
It has adjustable legs.

I got the HS Scents folding seat and it works pretty good. I believe Cabelas has them for $17 bucks. Good investment I believe.

I have a boat seat bolted to a an office chair base that has the wheels and plastic taken off, and piston drilled so it is stuck in the lowest postion.

I use this in a blind that I setup. The downside is if I decide to sit some where else I'm sitting on the ground.

Why not use a small pop up blind and a folding canvas chair?

I bought a stool several years ago with a web seat and about 4 inch nonfolding legs. I extended the legs about 6 inches with some old aluminum tent poles and added a 1 1/2 inch foam pad off an old deer stand. Also added padded (backpack shoulder straps and 4 extra lond boot strings).

I use a homemade curtain blind and use the boot laces to tie it to the stool if I'm moving. The boot laces are also used to tie a turkey inside the legs of the stool, really makes carrying a turkey out of the woods.

I also have 3 blinds I set up each year and use the canvas bag chairs in those. After 2 or three weeks, my rear end starts to faint siting on that stool every day. Arthiritis is rough and there's no way I can sit on the ground on the pads attached to turkey vest. I believe I bought the stool from Cabelas, not sure they sell them anymore.

I had the very same issues as well with the seat cushion on my vests over the years. I've since went with the folding seat by H.S. Strut. I've also placed one of those foam heat cushions on top of it as well. Works slick!!! Here's a link.
