    Alright, with Turkey season on the horizon, I thought we could have a discussion about something other than eggsucker impacts and all day hunting.
    There aren't many topics that I find myself sitting on the fence, but I will say my attitude has changed from being a definite skeptic (right up there with the acorn cruncher) to finding myself more open following a conversation with someone whose opinion I respect.
    So.....is there anything to these Hecs suits for hunting? Open to all opinions....and no, I don't currently own one and have no plans on buying one.

    My opinion is it's genius if it seperates your money from your wallet. Don't know much of anything about them but figure every TV hunter around would be wearing one if they thought they might help in accomplishing my first sentence.

    I have no clue what a hec suit is, so obviously I don't wear one.

    If they would hunt/kill turkey, deer, etc. on TV in areas other than obvious high fence then maybe........

    And that's a big maybe.........

    Hooks your a killer anyways! If you buy one of these "suits" ..... that would just be "unfair"......

    Its only silly until it's proven tried and true.... which is why it seems silly to me currently.
    I had to Google it as I don't have the pursuit channel.

    I see you are still in need of an azz whooping. My kid is 16 now and lifting weights. Every year you put it off, the beat down is gonna be worse.
    This is serious bizzness!

    Does anyone one else ever wonder..... If you wore a Hecs suit, combined with Ozonics, Scent Away spray, and sat in a double bull blind... You might just disappear from Earth, and end up in a parallel universe where everyone acts, looks, and talks like @rat or @Refuze2falo.... :wave1:

    I have woken up in a cold sweat on more than one occasion due to this nightmare. I don't risk it. :eek:

    Of course it works, sheesh. On their website they have a video where a nearly blind armadillo walks right by a hunter.

    The only way you could legitimately prove that it works or doesn't work would be to exactly replicate an experience with and without the HECS. The wind, sun, etc would have to be exactly the same. Of course, that can't be done.
    Did you notice that they usually don't wear a face mask? Why not, wouldn't your head/face give off those killer electronic waves? I am not a believer.

    They don't have to cover their faces because of the tin foil they wear under their beanies.

    I have been to that parallel universe where everyone talks and acts like rat and rop. The good news is there are only 2 people in that universe.
