tule seat or chair question

Postby Mattquack » Sun Oct 02, 2005 10:08 am

I'm looking for someone that has plans for or knows of an inexpensive tule seat/chair. Lightweight thing to carry through the muck. Something that won't sink to much in the mud. I found one on the net for $80, but I really don't want to spend that much $$. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. :help:

If the water is not to deep where you hunt try these: A 5 gal bucket with a hole drilled in the bottom , turned upsidedown. The hole lets the air out,not to cause a vacume. How about that plastic recycle container; its 19" high with a bunce of holes & light weight. I connect a light rope to 'em and carry my ducks out in them. (or you can use a duck strap for those xtra good days) Later...Ed

The knight duck seat looks good to me. I bought a different seat a few years back. It is basically a hollow tube with a seat on top. Bad design. The mud gets stuck up in the tube and the seat becomes very heavy to carry out. Cleaning it up sucked.

I think I will take it to my duck club this year with a post hole digger and permanently install it next to a tree.

Yeah, I think I saw the one you're talking about in Cabela's catalog. It's just olive drab green. It looked like it would be a hastle to carry. And it looked like it would sink in the muck.

I have a place to hunt that is an absoloute nightmare to hunt if you don't have a marsh seat. The muck is really deep, and the best way to walk in is to go around the edge of the marsh to the back side and come in to the larger open hole in the back. Solution: marsh seat on a budget. I took a small scrap of treated 2 x 6 that was about 10 inches long and nailed it to the top of a scrap of treated 2 x 4 that was about 4 feet long. I then came up from the bottom of the 2x4 about 1.5 feet and nailed another piece of 2x4 about a foot long (cross member style) to prevent my fat butt from sinking the thing into the muck too far. Instant, cheap, light, and very effective marsh seat. i put a piece of webbing on it for a sling, and it works great.

what a coincidence! I was just going to tell you guys about the seat that I built last night. It's just about identical to yours! I'll post a picture of it tonight. I even padded and apolstered the seat, and painted the rest with some olive drab spray paint. :thumbsup:

I built three last year like chicobrownbear is talking about, but I used treated 5/4x6 deck boards instead of 2x4's. The only thing is screw them together instead of nailing, the nails tend to try to work themselves out.
