An interior lockable storage lockbox or gun case is a good option for hunters. This gets installed right under the seat in a safe place that won’t take up too much room (but it could prevent the seat from reclining all the way). The lockbox/gun case has a fully integrated keyed lock, so someone can’t open it if your truck key is lying around. It comes with internal mounting hardware to keep it locked to the seat, too. Each one is make and model specific.
