I have two box blinds, one has a decent chair, it even reclines a little bit. My other box blind has a crappy chair with a short back that won't lean back one bit. Can't even take a nap before daylight.

Was thinking I need to come up with a better chair. I had some old office chairs in storage but threw them away. I guess I can try goodwill or something cheap on Amazon.

Got to thinking, I bet some of you guys are hooked up in the deer stand, bet someone has a recliner that even swivels LOL. I sure as heck don't but somedays I wish I did!!!!

Ok guys, tell off what kind of chair ya got.


Thanks, Billy

The new place came with lots of crappy blinds (unpainted OSB about the size of a phone booth), but several had decent office chairs in them. I've rescued enough that I didn't have to buy/find a single one. In the double-wide Blynd blind I have two of their small plastic chairs; zero maintenance except for the occasional spider, and they'll keep you awake. up Now in the large tank blind, I may or may not have one of those foam pool floats, just in case a power nap is required. sleep2

I am approaching that period when it will be all about getting the grandchildren up high enough to see and shoot. I might even try to set up the bogpod with the rifle rest; you know, the kind that's used when you see the picture of the 6 year old that's shot a 200" buck at 200 yards. roflmao

Both of my deer blinds have high back swivel office chairs with arm rests. Both do recline back some to get a good nap during those "slow days."

A few years ago I bought the top of the line Cabela's brand blind chair. It swivels, has adjustable feet for height adjustment, cushioned and armrests. I just looked, and they still have them for $120

I have a white leather love seat in my popup blind. It's hard to hunt when you're that comfortable.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

I have not used in the blind but have in other hobby where we sit around.
These chairs have a spring thing that allows you to lean back.

Too many places for the creepy crawlies to hide and get me.

I tried an office type chair, but it wasn't very good for getting into a shooting position. I went to Walmart and sat on every folding chair they had and one of them was super comfortable. It has a pad on the bottom and back that adds to the comfort. It has plenty of room for positioning yourself for a shot out of the blind, and when not being used, they fold up easily. I bought one for my wife too, and she really likes it.

I’ve got a high back gaming chair in each, an office chair in one, and a folding chair in the other.

Good office chairs in mine. Go to office outlet store in Bossier City for deer stand chair sale. $5-10.

I hunt blind with guys that are over 6'2" and I'm about 5'10" so I always run into height problems. I just bought a few of the All Seasons Feeder barstool type chairs and they get the job done without taking a bunch of space.

The best chair I ever had I picked up at a junk yard from an old van. It was the captains chairs from the middle seats. They were super cushiony and the back reclined. I fabricated a wood base for both, and later installed a swivel base on it. Many friends I hunted with hunted out of my blind just because of the chairs. Now I use regular fold up chairs, which will be upgraded to a nicer office chair soon.

The used office supply places in Houston used to have good used office chairs. The ones I can find now look like a bear chewed them up and they are a rediculous price and in good shape even more. I'm sure if I look around I can find a place thats reasonable.

I may try goodwill too.


Thanks, Billy

Unfortunately, I think the used office chair market will be glutted fairly soon.

ha, I hadn't thought of all the people that are now working from home buying up used office chairs ...

We have a place here in Georgetown that has decent used office furniture (or did last year) with various pricing $5-20 on 5 leg, swivel, adjustable height/back in various fabrics. I've bought probably 8-10 from them over the past couple of years. I just go set in them and play with the adjustments to see if I can get it to different heights, lean back, etc. and making sure they don't squeak before buying.
