The 10 Best Hunting Chairs

This wiki has been updated 18 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 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. We've included a variety of styles, from small and lightweight to heavy-duty. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

September 15, 2020:

For this update we added the Hunter's Edge Mac Daddy Caddy as an all-in-one solution for getting a long day's worth of hunting needs to it's destination on sturdy wheels

We considered removing the Wise Outdoors Super Sport because the Mac Daddy is so much easier to transport, but the Super Sport's plastic bottom still makes it a popular choice on boats.

The perfect hunting chair is one that not only is comfortable, but also manages to swivel without making noise. The Millennium G100 and the Alps OutdoorZ Stealth are both designed not to squeak, although this could still be a problem for hunters who are pushing the weight limit or if the chair hasn't been well maintained over the years.

For those who need an over-sized chair we included the extra-wide Big Blind, although hunters lose the option to swivel, the 400 pound capacity and slightly taller height gives those who shop at the Big and Tall store a place to sit.

February 27, 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.
