I have a bad lower back, so finding a great chair was very important to me. The Millennium G100 is awesome, but pricy. I bought one last year for antelope blind hunting. I spent up to nine hours in one sit and was not uncomfortable.

I used the 5 gallon bucket a lot. Never liked to carry my bow in one hand and the bucket in the other. Im very embarresed that I never thought of the sling idea. Im going back to the bucket. Only this time Im going to use a taller bucket with a modified lid for more butt area.

If you ever tried the G100, you'd use that bucket for trash. :)

I agree with longbow fanatic 1.

We hunted together for antelope and he could sit a lot longer than anyone I know.

I need to buy one.(Millenium G 100)

Pricey, but lightweight and a really great seat.

O-K. I just googled the g100 hunting chair and no. That thing just screams yuppie, city slicker compound bow. And at $185.00, no not even. Also in the swamp, it looks like it would sink in the mud about a foot.

They also make one which straps to a tree and has the same comfort level for much less. Lots of guys use it for duck hunting, so that one would not sink in the swamp.

If you ever sat in one, you'd know why the guys who have them really like them.

You can use the chair while hunting with a compound, or gun. Yuppies would like it too. Anyone with a butt in the right place would fine the chair comfortable.

If it's a yuppie chair...well...then I will just cover it in a black plastic bag and sneak it thru the woods.

Huntmor chair, I have even drifted off to sleep a couple of times in mine. However, I have heard that they are no longer available.

Does anyone know if that is correct?

I have sure gotten a lot of good out of mine. Would hate to think I couldn't replace it sometime down the road... [Confused]

I have a Huntmore chair that I have used for a number of years and purchased a Millennium G100 from Big Jim when I was coming through Albany on Tuesday and it is a super comfortable chair & so much more easier to set up than the Huntmore. I cannot wait to use it this spring for turkey hunting.

Hawkeye, Scott Hoffman told me a couple of years ago that he was trying to sell his Huntmore company. If you go to the website it says the company is for sale and the chairs are sold out.

You might try contacting him. His email address is info@huntmore.biz
