This wiki has been edited 6 times since it was first published in February of 2019. The long, often monotonous, hours hunters typically spend patiently waiting for prey may be considered a meaningful part of the activity — but those hours are sure more enjoyable if you’re comfortable. These portable chairs will come in handy when you’re setting up a temporary base out in the woods or up in a blind. They vary in style, from small and lightweight to heavy-duty. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best hunting chair on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 28, 2019:

Although it may feel a bit cramped and limit your field of vision in some ways, the Ameristep Realtree Xtra warrants a place on the list as an affordable option for hunters who value some cover from inclement weather. For those who may covet something a bit more creative than a standard chair, we added the Wise Outdoor Super and Big Game Deluxe: the former features a built-in cooler as a base, and the latter attaches directly to the top of a five-gallon bucket. Those who prefer to travel light and simple may prefer the Alps OutdoorZ Edge, which provides surprisingly stout support for a low-cost, compact model. Performed some research on the Caldwell DeadShot, which has a built-in shooting rest for a rifle, but discovered too many reports of instability and poor balance to include it.
