    I can hike around the ranch for hours while carrying the stand and chair over my shoulder.   This is the best setup I’ve found so far.

    I already have the rifle stand.  I have the stool in my Amazon Wishlist.

    I had that stool did not work out for me cause hunting ground squirrels they would pop up behind me at times, or to the right or to the left, so I got the camo bucket that swivels with the pockets to carry my bino’s range finder and pellets.

    I like the bucket idea.  Is it easy to carry while hiking?

    Or you can combine the two into one and fold it up to carry like a backpack.  Google Caldwell Deadshot Chairpod.

    I am using this table my father in law made for me .
    Its a benchrest table without any bolt or srew. The 5 pieces al slide together and it makes a very stable benchrest platform.

    I really like that shooting bench.  I think I could make one of those at work on our waterjet cutter in about 10 minutes.

    That would be a lot more easy if u can use such a machine instead of sawing and cutting 😉 .
    Anyway the bench is nice and steady to shoot from and it’s portable without srews and bolts

    I absolutely love my Idleback chair for long-range hunting.  It’s a bit spendy, but it’s all aluminum so it’s light and shoulders easily for carry comfort in the field.  Also is fully adjustable, swivels 360 degrees and gives a rock-steady rest for precision long-range engagements.  

    Here’s a link to a video review:

    I have found this hunting chair to be VERY comfy and VERY stable (IMHO) to hit target out at long distances. I have not had to put a drop of lube to the chair swivel even after a year of service.  Just remember to hold on to your rifle when getting off the chair. I installed an iPhone holder (mod) on the rest so I had access to the ballistic app viewable right in front of me. I’d would take a picture but the chair is at my dad’s place.  However, looks like Astroman’s chair has better ergo.

    OP I use the exact same setup. When I use a collapsible blind I take a folding chair or the hunters bucket.

    How does this stand up against the OP’s post? Is it going to be sturdy enough or can I go cheaper than this with a similar set up? http://www.amazon.com/Caldwell-488111-Magnum-DeadShot-FieldPod/dp/B00AVUIZ4W/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1457021639&sr=8-5&keywords=tripod+rifle
