A Unique Seat That Has been My Companion
There is one accessory that I have always included in my travels out into the woods and fields of the great outdoors, my camouflage cushioned seat. My seat has been out in the rain, snow, and freezing weather of late fall and early winter months, and I have used it in hunting and fishing trips, and it has made my experiences there much more enjoyable. The little green stool has set on many deer stands with me, concealed against a big tree or near some brush, that I may have arranged as a blind, that would conceal me, as I waited to harvest a deer in the fall of the year. My seat sported a carrying strap and I have spent many a day carrying the seat across my back, as I moved to and from deer cover locations. It has been a part of many a deer harvesting, and has provided me with a good resting spot in which to wait on my quarry.In the past eight years. I have utilized my seat on many trips and it has been a vital part of each hunting trip that I have been on, as I waited in the early morning hours, or late in the evenings, on a chosen stand. It has never complained at all, on all of those safaris that we were out on together.
My camouflage seat has been with me on a number of fishing trips, in which I would have had no way of resting, unless I had taken it along with me. It has been a part of catching lunker bass and scores of speckled Crappie fish and many catfish, as well. I have sat upon the cushioned seat and fished for several long hours, and its handy pockets have held both hunting gear and fishing tackle, over the years. Its dark green colors have faded a little over the years with it being out in the elements of sun and cold weather, but it has served me well over all of those hunting and fishing seasons and will always be part of the usual gear that I take along with me for a long time into the future. One unique feature is that inside of the seat is a built-in cooler that holds drinks and sandwiches, and keeps them cooled for a full day.
As I have gotten on in age and the days of being able to stand up and fish and hunt have become a little too difficult, in my being able to sit on that seat, it has been a real pleasure for me. I recommend a camouflage seat like it to anyone, young or old, and not just for outdoor action sports. It can be used for cook-outs, picnics, and sight seeing ventures into the great outdoors, for everyone of all ages and genders. When I grab my rifles and hunting jacket, or pick up my tackle box and fishing poles, the next vital thing that I pick up, is my little green camouflage seat, then head on out the doorway into the great outdoors, with the confidence needed to have an enjoyable day. As I sat on my front porch the other day, I spied my seat setting on the edge, exposed to the rain storm that was fast approaching our home. Without any concern for my getting drenched, I grabbed up my camouflage seat, the most valued jewel of outdoor excursions, and hustled it into a dry location, inside my front door.That seat was way too valuable to allow it to get drenched in an unnatural way, as it may have, as it and I, sat out in the wilds, enjoying a good drenching.That just was the way that it was supposed to be. It has set stoically on the ground, amid pine cones and on long wet docks, without the slightest whimper. It has been the epitome of the bravest and most dependable hunting and fishing companion, that a man could have ever wanted, and I will stay loyal to it and in return, I suspect it will be loyal to me, and for a long time and many seasons into the wild, to come.
