Hi Everyone. I have a really bad back and I hunt out of a ground blind. I have never really found a comfortable and functional chair. I saw this cool video on a really helpful YouTube channel about using a Gaming Chair (Like kids use for Xbox, etc). I laughed at first, but then thought, that might just be a brilliant idea! What does everyone think?

I need a new chair, so I’m glad you brought this up. And, is that a blind or a tiny house. Bed, recliner, end table, lamp, wow.

Not one to make fun of back issues (I am fused from L2-to S1), there might be something to ponder from the guys who shoot Lawn Chair Steel:

I have a supply of old office chairs that were mothballed for very little reason. Fabric is intact, they raise/lower, and the other controls work. They make excellent deer-blind chairs. A gaming chair would be a great choice if you need lots of adjustment to account for a bad back.

That's the nicest hunting setup I've every seen.

My thought is to try before you buy. I just bought a new office chair, and I sat in a lot of gaming chairs before I bought. None of the gaming chairs really were right for my back. YMMV.

I always look funny, pulled over to the side of the road, next to a pile of somebody's spring cleaning garbage on the side of the street, trying out each of the chairs. Do I leave them, or put one in the back of the truck for the tree stand?

My thoughts exactly! Man, how sweet would it be to just roll out of bed 10 minutes before the feeder goes off and get some coffee going!

That's not hunting. That's camping with weapons.

I'm old so camping with weapons has an attractive element that did not exist 30 years ago. Yet the one thing I want the most (not a bad back) is seat height adjustment. Getting the seat height correct for the ledge on the blind makes for easier and more accurate shooting. I've just ordered 2, 1" foam pads to help with that as it's different for every blind as they have different chairs.


"Group think" is not thinking. It is the lack of independent thought. It is a cancer of the mind.

I know people that shoot deer out the house windows. Works for them no lease, gas burned to go hunting and comfortable. irs

For chair height in blinds multiple people use the pneumatic chairs are great and can be found sometimes at used furniture places, bought one for a stand at gateway last year.

That's a lot fancier seat than the old ones I have.

All but one of my true office chairs came with the place. It was a labor of love, rescuing them from the crappy blinds they were in. I was commenting on the Blynd chair. Fancy schmanzy.

Those Blynd chairs are sturdy, durable, don't take up much space and are more comfortable than they look

Not sure if the guy in the OP pic could actually shoot out of that window from that chair. He said he only had one window and it looks to high for that guy.

I use old office chairs...they raise, lower, and lean back. Plus arm-rests are a must have.
