I've been given a Wildlife Watching Supplies dome hide and have a couple of basic questions if I may please:

1) I can work out how to raise the hide with the two poles but can anyone explain please or ideally with pictures how to stake it down with the supplied pegs / cord
2) Any recommendations for a suitable seat to use inside it for spells of 2-3 hours at a time would be much appreciated.

TIA

WWS have customer services details on their website, so they are perhaps the best to answer your question regarding setting up the hide. They may well also be able to recommend (and sell you) a comfortable seat, or at least point you to where you can find one.

There's probably some type of fabric loops or pegging points near the bottom of the hide.
It might not even need pegging down unless it's windy.

Try YouTube for a review and/or set up guide.

A lightweight foldable camping chair works for me, with the emphasis on lightweight in case getting to a location involves a long walk.

If you Google it you will find pictures of the hide set up and from that you will see where the guy ropes and pegs go.

As its basically a small tent, won't the tabs for any guy lines be obvious - same goes for the base pegs?

if I use a portable hide I try and set it up as quick as possible to avoid the wildlife spotting me. I threw my guy lines away as I knew I wouldn't leave it set up anywhere. A lightweight fishing stool is ideal especially if you have to carry everything to the location. Camera, tripod, lenses, sandwiches, drink, hide and stool is a lot of kit to carry.

1) Hold peg in close proximity to the ground 🏕

2) Pick up and hold hammer in dominant hand 🖐🔨

3) Whack it!! 💪💪💪👌🥂🤣
