Okay, I got the rifle, the case, the Harris bipod, the camos, boots, etc and will take the Hunter Safety Course this weekend. Then I get a license and start my new hobby. I am kinda hyper and am worried about fidgeting and giving myself away. Is there a daypack that has a comfortable, low sitting chair w/ backrest out there...preferably in Mossy Oak?

BC, There are some pretty cool chairs out there also, with backs on them and sit about 6" off of the ground. These are a bit heavier but still managable and really comfortable Ron

That Delta vest was on sale a few weeks ago for $10.00. I picked one up just for the heck of it...figured it ought to work for 10 bucks.

I agree. Heck, I know less than nothing so I might as well get some basic stuff, see how I do in the field and then start really spend coin when I have a friggin' clue. <g> Found a buncha stuff I needed there, callers, gloves, facemask, hat, quite a shopping list. And to think it all started with my 1st visit here and buying a Savage Predator off the classifieds board. Posted ImageI am accummulating stuff at an impressive rate. You know you're in trouble when the missus starts bitching about the volume of stuff instead of the cost. LOLThanks guys,Bruce

I have that gobbler chair and it is the most comfortable hunting chair I have used. GREAT back support and low to the ground. It's a bit cumbersome to pack in though.

They sure do make a lot of specialty stuff nowadays. I've shown poor judgement in the past and have bought some of that stuff...used it once or twice and filed it out in the garage somewhere. We always used to just sit on the ground...or in some areas sit on a dove stool. If you go to Target or Walmart they sell those kneeling pads for gardening (like in pics)...I think they are two or three bucks and basically last forever... using that or a cheapo dove stool from big 5 work as well as anything. Also, taking the vest off and on all day before and after every stand gets to be a pain...IMOPosted ImagePosted Image

Yeah, I think it just depends. Those of us with back problems really benefit from something with some back support. I don't mind sitting on the ground, but after 10 minutes my back starts to hurt. It's hard to stay still in a stand when your back is killing you. The gobbler seat provides great support while still leaving you almost on the ground. Folded up it's not really much more than carrying a pad (though a bit heavier).

After 300,000 miles on motorcycles and 6 decent spills, my 49 yr old back is not as resilient as it used to be. I'm dfar from being a cripple...perhaps a little slower and cautious. If I am uncomfortable I'll be squimy and that's a bad thing. I bought it, we'll try it. Thanks guys.

I think back support is often over looked in choosing a good predator seat. I use to go out with one of those mini lawn chairs, and it was comfortable. But there were a few times were I fell asleep in the thing. I tied two straps to it so I could carry it like a back pack and it was easy to carry. I tied a small pack on the back where I could carry my lunch and a Sponge Bob juce box. After a while I attached a Cabelas butt pad to the thing because my butt kept falling asleep. That worked great and I was set until it fell out my truck and the semi behind me ran over it. The only thing that survived was the butt pad which is what I use now.I've had two back surgeries and as long as I do some stretches before each stand, the butt pad does the trick.

I just spray painted one of the stadium seat pads. It weighs nothing and cost the same

I have 2 camo Stearns boat cushions that I use. Sometimes I sit on both and sometimes I use one for a back rest. I snap them right on my pack.-----------kevin-------------
