    Hunting stool - tripod

    Anybody got a recommendation for a decent tripod seat. I'm looking for one that won't sink into soft ground. I've kind of homed in on the camping type stools but maybe somebody knows a better version/make?
    Regards, Mark

    The metal lids off of jam jars and similar, placed under the feet of the stool, do the trick for me on peat.

    Ha, sounds like a plan. If they can deal with peaty bogs....

    Try this, it looks well made. And a fair price to me.
    Loads of Germans use them leather seat & 35mm wooden legs.

    Although a seat is good I find a small 25lt tub , small feeder type in a rucksack The best all your gear go's inside as a plus you get a none sinking seat and dry contents DIY a seat if you wish on the lid mine cost naff all from a keeper on the site, I have tried most of the seats and they 1, sink,2 won't sit in the place you wish to sit ! the only one I found is one that was made by the Essex hunter AKA (Tim.243) it fits any ditch or tree or truck wheel come to that .

    I used a tripod stool for decades however last year for x mas I got (well purchased myself) a Quake industries Stag shooting chair. It is brilliant, adjustable height it rotates and has a back rest. OK its not that light but if your pigeon shooting or a stake out for a fox then it just superb. Pigeon watch has a deal on them. Highly recommended.

    Not peaty bogs. Just woodland floor of soft and often wet peat.

    Not the cheapest, but collapse to a small size, light, and strong, several size options, a "steady" that will help prevent sinking, and spare parts are available.
