Default Ameristep Doghouse - Chair Recommendations

Looking for a chair that doesn't sit so high.

Do they make such an item?

What chair are you using?

I have been hunting out of their Brickhouse. What I've been doing is sitting in the back of the blind in a cheap, collapsible Academy chair and then shifting to a "shooting stool" that I'll have centered in the pop up. Works for me

In for better ideas as this has been my first experience in a pop up blind

Look at stools or even youth camp chairs

Bass boat seat mounted on top of a plastic stool. There are old threads on here. Search DIY

Looks good, but is it noisy?

I really like the swivel chair at Cabelas. Got it on sale for $49 a few years ago.

I have this one and like it because I can raise or lower it to the height I need, as well as level it off if on uneven ground. I don't raise the arm rests though. Not bad for $60.

SAMs has some solid black fold up plastic chairs that are lightweight and comfortable for $19.99. That and a fat boy is all you need to sit all day
