In order to perform properly on a calling stand at night, you need a shooting chair that allows you to turn quietly and shoot from a still and stable platform.

In the case of drop-and-go hunting, a driver drops you off and drives to his/her position and issues the call. Your job is to merely sit and observe, without calling, using a red light to light up the area.
