I hunt in a pop up blind with a camp chair. I'm a big fan of the foldable camp chair. Much more comfortable that a plastic chair.

i thought about a camp/foldable chair, but i would also like it to be solid so i can prop on the arm rest if i need too.

I did the office chair thing. Finally spent about $70 for the Cabelas blind chair. Web seat and you can add a pad if you need more comfort. Holds up well in a blind with no enclosed windows and I like duck foot. had one now on the third season. Also very quiet.

These chairs now go for $118 at The Blynd. When I bought them, they were like $50 or so. They are compact, fairly light weight, you can't wear them out and are more comfortable than they look. I have had my two for over twenty years now.

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

We use high back office chairs. On a cold day with the heater going you can lean back and catch a great nap.

I have two of Academy's Game Winner chairs that have always worked well in my ground blinds. I replaced all the seats in my tripods with plastic boat seats and swivel bases.

I noticed Walmart now offers something very close to the Game Winner chairs for about $20 less.

stopped by the local goodwill today, the only chairs they had were like kitchen chairs, and they did have one office chair, but the cushion felt like it was past it's service life.
I think i may just buy a cushion to put it in it and roll with it this season...
Thank you everyone for the suggestions... I'll keep my eye out for any good deals.

That's what I was talking about. 'Got two of them in my "Oso Seco" Blynd. Paid 50.00 each and I thought it was outrageous, but here we are many years later.

"The Blynd" was sold you know. Moved north of Churchill a few miles. 'Doubt they'll last long. frown

I was going to use an office chair but I decided to use one of those rolling shop chairs that I already had. I was going to replace it with an office chair but decided it was better to keep the shop chair, it has no arms. When I start to nod off I start falling out of the chair and wake up. Keeps me honest.

I prefer an office chair with a high back, on cold mornings the padding sure keeps the bottom and back a lot warmer than a regular chair without padding. The comfort of them also keeps me in the stand longer,
