heidelbauer custom duck calls

"You cant believe how well these stools work until you've enjoyed an entire day on one in the marsh. I've had, and used, and thrown away all the other stools I've ever come across until this one."
- Dr. Robert E. Nelson

The Heidelbauer Marsh Stool uses two pieces of Ash (stronger than Oak) that are attached together using pieces of aluminum angle. Two more pieces are properly positioned at the bottom of the stool to create a base in the mud or muck. It will create a solid base in any mud, muck, or sand and never sink. The measurements of the stool have evolved over many years of use. It is just the right height to be able to stand quickly when the waterfowl is prime for taking.

"One of the best things I've ever come up with and developed."
- Frank Heidelbauer

This stool is much stronger than an of the stools on the market today. These stools can take all the abuse you can dish out. There are no moving pieces so nothing can break, which is the main problem with most stools in the sporting goods catalogs. Nor is there anything that will rust or decay. As mentioned the bracing is aluminum, and the Ash is finished with a product called Plas-tek. The finish is extremely strong and durable. The stool also comes with a carrying strap.

The price of the Heidelbauer Marsh is $45.00 plus shipping.
