you ever left your deer stand earlier than you had planned because you
got too cold? Have you ever found yourself fidgeting and moving
around on stand in an effort to stay warm? Or have you ever fought the
cold for so long that the hunt became a self-inflicted torture test instead
of being fun? If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then read
on because you do not ever have to be cold on deer stand again.
The Heater BodySuit is
the ultimate in cold weather deer hunting clothing. No heavy batteries
to lug around, no wires to kink at the wrong time. The Heater BodySuit
works on a very simple principle: trap the heat your body generates.
a sleeping bag with giant feet. You crawl inside of your Heater BodySuit,
boots and all and zip that baby up. The cold stays out and the heat stays
in. It is really that simple.
Believe me, once you have one of these babies you won't wait until the
mercury gets on the wrong side of zero to use it. Like most serious hunters,
when the rut is on, I try to hunt bell-to-bell every chance I get. Temperatures
in the teens and 20's are common during the rut in the North Country. Those
kinds of temperatures are easy to take for an hour or two but the cold
gets down to your bones when you start talking about eight to ten hours
Heater BodySuit has taken the torture out of those all day vigils. And,
being a Minnesota native I always thought that anyone who complained about
being cold while hunting south of the Mason-Dixon was a real wimp. Wrong
again! I recall in painful detail a mid-December hunt in Mississippi when
I would have gladly traded my bow for a Heater BodySuit. Then there was
the time in south Texas when what the cowboys down there call a 'blue norther'
roared through. I thought I was going to freeze to death. Today,
I don't travel anywhere without my Heater BodySuit.
Your initial reaction is likely to be very similar to mine. "Great idea"
I thought, "but how is a guy supposed to shoot a gun, much less a bow while
all wrapped up in some glorified sleeping bag?" The answer is 'easy'.
Thanks to a well-designed set of shoulder straps the upper portion of the
suit falls away quietly and easily with a minimum of movement. I've used
the suit a lot and I have yet to spook a deer while preparing for the shot.
suit is available in a waterproof or windproof version. The waterproof
version is great for your all around rifle/bowhunter. The windproof suit
is the ticket for your ultra-quiet conscious bowhunters, those who hunt
those cedar swamps in December where its so quiet you can hear yourself
If you are serious about cold weather deer hunting, this is a product
you should look into.
