DIY Hunter’s Pack Seat
« on: October 30, 2021, 07:37:08 AM »
details of the build https://www.diy.timetestedtools.net/diy-hunters-pack-seat/

There are a few pack seats on the market, but they’re very pricey, and although I didn’t buy any of them, I had concerns about each one. I tried to avoid those concerns in my design, however, my design required it meet my ability to built it both in skill set and equipment needed.

It took a couple of iterations to get to the final design. That may be clear in some of the esthetics.

Looks good. Is it stable if your weight shifts to the side? It looks a bit narrow at the front.

It's stable enough for me. I don't think i'd use it for a step stool, but slow moves hunting it seems fine. I'm sure I'll find some terrain where it could use additional stability, but I'm confident it'll work where i need it to.

Great looking seat.  Thanks for sharing.   :thumbsup:
I do like my Waldrop's Pac Seat as it's pretty lightweight and comfortable.

I came pretty close to pulling the trigger on one, but with the lead time, it wouldn't have been here for this season, and at $350, I was pretty hesitant.
