Sam Grothe calls a gobbler with Flambeau's feeder hen decoy.

The name alone should have tipped me off. But when I pulled my new FatBoy hunting cushion out of the box, I was a little concerned about its weight of 3 pounds. Then I strapped it around my waist and realized I would barely notice it no matter how far I had to walk to get to a good hunting spot. After a two hour evening test drive in a ground blind without so much as a fidget, I knew the FatBoy would be worth its weight in venison backstraps during an all-day sit. The FatBoy features a double-thick layer of Hunt Comfort's proprietary UltraSoft gel, over a thick double-density foam base, covered with a waterproof stretch fabric. UltraSoft gel distributes your weight evenly, eliminating circulation problems that can lead to the leg pain and numbness that often comes with sitting in one place for a long time. The result is an amazingly comfortable, convenient seat anywhere you hunt, scout, fish or camp.
