I love hunting and filming out of ground blinds, but space can get limited quickly! The No. 1 thing that usually takes up space (besides all my snacks) is your chair.
I like to be comfortable in a blind, but with the big folding chairs, there is usually very little room to draw your bow or even move around the blind to look out other windows. When using big chairs, I've found that you basically set yourself up for one window, one shooting area, and the rest is not possible without a lot of movement and rearranging.
Deer, turkeys and antelope don't always follow the script and come to that one window, so needless to say there's always a few missed opportunities.
One thing that I switched to this season for all my groundblind and boxblind hunting was a new 360-Degree Chair by HuntMore. This is more comfortable than any chair you've sat in, but takes up much less room. It was specifically designed for blind hunting and solves most of the problems in the field.
First, it has big feet so you won't sink down in soft ground. Second, each leg is adjustable to make your seat level regardless of how uneven the ground is. This will help you sit longer because you won't be sliding to the side and also makes it easier to shoot when the time comes, plus you will cut down on a sore back after a long day of sitting.
Also to help with your back, they have included a very comfortable backrest that can make a world of difference on an all-day sit.
Lastly, it swivels 360 degrees quietly, so you're able to access all your windows from one central location. When your hunt is finished and it's time to go home, the chair is fully collapsible, making it easy to carry all your gear plus your new comfortable chair in and out of the field.
