Thaner - A "trophy chair that straps on a tree"? I'm very interested in this concept - got any pictures or know where I can get one?thaner said:After two back surgeries in the last 6-years I do a lot to keep comfortable when hunting. I like the bucket. I use one of those extra tall ones you get commercial paint and other products in. You can load it up with extra stuff on the way out or ducks on the way back. When I get set up and organized I just fill it up part way with water and it won't pop up out of the water when you get up. I have one of those swivel bucket seats on it.
If we hunt a spot a lot and have the cover where a blind is not needed we sink a couple of 4x4's in the mud and nail a 2x4 on each side horizontal and top it with a 2x8 or scraps of plywood. You can seat a couple of hunters and put some hooks on the post to hang your gun or extra stuff.
In the timber I like to use my trophy chair that straps on a tree. These things are great for timber hunting ducks, for deer hunting, and turkey hunting. You can even use it on an elevated platform or hang it just inches above the ground for turkey hunting. Use it for a camp chair if you're next to a tree. Very useful and lightweight seat also quiet, no moving parts.
