1. A collapsible hunting blind, being a seat with a cover wherein both the seat and its cover can be collapsed for compact storage;

  • the seat having sides comprising laterally opposed left and right sides, and longitudinally opposed front and back sides, plus a seating surface between the sides;

    the collapsible hunting blind comprising;

    construction such that the hunting blind is deployed for use by uncollapsing the seat to form a seating surface between spaced apart left and right sides and spaced apart front and back sides, and the hunting blind is collapsed by collapsing the seat;

    said construction comprising;

    a flexible elongated cover support bow comprising a first bow end that is attached to the left seat side, a second bow end that is attached to the right seat side, and an elongated portion flexed as an arch from the first bow end to the second bow end, wherein the bow ends are attached to the seat such that both the seat and its cover are collapsed for compact storage while attached together;

    a covering comprising a flexible sheet supported by the cover support bow, and extending downward around the seat to a lower periphery lying closely adjacent an underlying surface of the seat when the cover is deployed; and

    a laterally collapsing seat wherein the left seat side and the right seat side comprise the only pair of drawn-together seat sides;

    such that collapsing the seat draws the left and right seat sides closer together and the first and second bow ends with them, thereby resulting in a relatively narrow elongated planar compact bundle with a correspondingly narrowed cover support bow arch.
