I was hoping with 35,000+ members someone out there can answer my question. Who makes the folding hunting seat that Les Johnson is using nowadays on his TV show, Predator Quest? My seat (and sometimes my butt) is starting to get worn out and I need a new one, hunting seat that is. Thought I might try one of those if I can find out who makes it. Thanks for any input.

i believe he sells them on his website, i bought one a couple of years ago from sportsman's warehouse. the one i bought had a different camo print but from looking at les's chair it looks exactly the same. i can't remember who made it, but it works great.

don't ask me how she remembered this, but my wife said the seat is made by beard buster. i googled it and she was right.

Just go to any sports store. They are by the canoes. They may not say "Les" on em. But they do work.

Check out this seat (hope the link works). Not the same one you're asking about but I have it and I really like it. It gets you up off of the wet/cold ground, I use the Harris 27" bipod and it's good for me, I'm 6'-0".

I also use the one you linked to. The fold down back is nice on realy cold days you can leave it down and it insulates your butt. The one downfall is the rounded legs they tend to act like sled runners in icy conditions.

I use this one. I love it. No back but I always find a tree or rock or something to lean against. It is the H.S. Strut turkey seat. $15.00 bucks.

Does the Wing Supply seat have a sturdy back rest? That seat looks like something I might be interested in, but I need good back support. I know some of the foam turkey seats are too flexible for good support.

The seat looks rather small, which may not be a bad thing since I will need to pack it in luggage for travel.

both the ALPS and the turkey lounger have good backs.

The pic I posted above of my seat does not have a back but in Pennsylvania I always find some kind of rest to lean against....tree, fence post. farm equipment, big rock, wood pile,
hay bail,,,,I could go on all night but you get the idea.
AND if I can't find something I just set on it the way it is. I can't set as long or as still without a back rest but I can make it 30 minutes or so.

I was going to suggest the Tree Lounge Ground Stand, but sadly the company has recently gone out of business. A picture of the ground stand is below. Wish I would've bought one before they shutdown. It was a bit pricey at $80, but no one else had anything like it.

Everyone is searching using the wrong words. Try searching Google or looking at your local Academy store for a Stadium Seat.

This is the seat Les Johnson uses. This version is without the pack. Looks to be a very comfortable seat. I wish I could somehow combine a seat like this with FoxPro's new vest. If one could, then they would have the ultimate set up.

OK, but who makes this one?
