I use these bucket seats when I'm either in the blind or if I'm still hunting during gun season. They also make great storage containers to toss your small stuff in when you get back to your vehicle. I to back pack them you just need to mount some simple straps to them.
Great cheap way to recycle kitty litter buckets and put them to use. The other thing is if they get lifted out of your blind it isn't a big $$ loss.
The paint job I start by using light gray primer and coat the bucket. Then I cut out of cardboard some simple paint stencils and use drab green and brown over the gray primer.
