New Plano 1812 Hunting Stool is a prime and practical perch for dove and waterfowl hunting

Plano, IL (March 22, 2016) – Most hunters and shooters are familiar with Plano’s highly practical and economical 1312, 1612 and 1712 Field/Ammo Boxes. These durable, molded-plastic field boxes have been used to store and transport ammunition, hunting accessories and shooting supplies to and from the range and field for years now. A new, larger Magnum 1812 Ammo/Field Box was added to this honest and hardworking lineup earlier this year.

PLANO_1812 Hunting Stool_image1The ample dimensions of the new Magnum 1812 prompted a spark in the minds of Plano’s engineering staff. “Hey, Mike, sit down on that thing for a minute.” The spark went full light bulb. “Hmm… Interesting.” A few engineering drawings and a couple prototypes later, the all-new Plano 1812 Hunting Stool emerged.

Conceived as the ultimate, compact and highly portable dove hunting field box and seat, Plano’s new 1812 Hunting Stool is destined to earn devotees from the world of waterfowling as well. Anyone who appreciates the dual functionality of a comfy seat atop a pragmatic and practical carryall will find a new favorite friend in the clever 1812 Hunting Stool.

The sturdy and stealthy Magnum 1812 Field/Ammo Box serves as the 1812 Hunting Stool’s adroit core and superstructure. The oversized 1812 Magnum Can is the ideal vessel for keeping shot shells sandwiches and other necessities at-hand throughout the hunt. A latched, quick-access storage compartment is molded right into the can’s lid for immediate access to choke tubes, wrenches and other small items. The 1812 Magnum is finished with a brass bail latch and a heavy-duty molded handle.

A hardwearing but lightweight ballistic Nylon wrap envelops and attaches to the outside of the box, providing additional levels of utility and secure storage. Large, zippered and gusseted pockets adorn the front and sides of the 1812 Hunting Stool, while a handy additional mesh pocket spans the back. Up top, a Nylon-covered, comfortable foam pad creates a plush seating surface for waiting out fast-flying game, while a detachable shoulder strap affords comfortable and reliable transport to and from the truck. All fabric surfaces are finished in the versatile Mossy Oak Brush camouflage pattern.
