Thank you for visiting my website and expressing your interest in the Waldrop PacSeat. This seat was born out of a desire of a bowhunter to be able to hunt on the ground, with a bow, in complete comfort at the same time be totally effective on game. Tall order - you're not kidding, especially with bow and arrow.
I was a typical deer hunter with usually eight to ten tree stands hung high and low, here and there, over yonder and just down the road. I became what I call a prisoner to my stands and more precisely to their location and the wind. Plus, I was getting older and not wiser and forgetting where I was hanging the darn things. I spent a lot of time hanging stands, clearing lanes, all the things we do, including "stinking up " the woods. A lot of time, I thought, could be better spent actually hunting. I was a tree climbing fool for a lot of years - never dreaming there was another way to do it. I finally got tired of it all, mainly not being able to hunt particular stands because of the wind. I needed to be freed some kind of way.
That way turned out to be the birth of the PacSeat. It has enabled me to hunt almost anywhere I choose, at anytime I choose, and be extremely effective, without having to hang a tree stand.
I would like to send special thanks to my friends Matt Schuster and Sam Roberts for their help through wisdom!
Jonathan Wilson and Zack Kile (of Gen273) painted a picture for me and delivered it with the greatest of personal concern and unparalleled professionalism! Thank you!

What my customers are saying...
"I do a lot of my hunting from the ground. I've tried just about every stool or chair that there is, and everything has come up short in one way or another, but not my PacSeat! I have found it to be extremely lightweight, dead quiet, rock solid, and so extremely comfortable that it sometimes puts me to sleep. I will not hunt from the ground without my PacSeat!"
"The 3 problems most seats have is.. too much weight, not enough comfort, and you guessed it, they squeak at the most inopportune time! This seat weighs only 4 pounds and is so comfortable you can take a snooze anywhere (as my 11 year old daughter experienced moments before killing a gobbler this spring). The design is simple yet very durable and solid. For years I struggled with getting chairs and blinds in and out of the woods during turkey season, but thanks to the PacSeat that is no longer an issue! An additional thought would be “it’s an awesome gift for friends”. I have given two of them to my friends and they love them!"

"The Waldrop PacSeat is one of the finest packable seats on the market today, and 100% handmade by David. A hunting seat designed by a hunter for hunters. It is extremely versatile allowing you to use it as a stand alone seat or propped up against a tree."
"I have been hunting from the ground for several years now, and I always struggled with staying comfortable. I normally used a tree seat that I had made or a swiveling stool of some sort, and they were noisy and uncomfortable to sit in for any length of time. The Waldrop Pacseat allows me the freedom to be very mobile, and able to remain comfortable for long sits. It is extremely lightweight, quiet and comfortable, and is the one piece of equipment that I never go hunting without."

I offer one seat and only one seat. It should be all you need to have a wonderful hunting experience. The PacSeat is completely hand made in my shop at home in Columbus, GA, and is a very labor intensive process. Although I have been making them for some years, I will start this new venture by making six seats per week hoping that it will lead to more production in the future. It is important that you place an order well before hunting season as having inventory is difficult at best. The price per seat is $225.00 plus shipping (usually $15-$20) and I accept checks or money orders.
