Let us know how it works. I'm looking to possibly get one as well. If you're sitting all day in a stand or blind, I think they would work great. However, pretty sure you could come up with something similar from home, but it's so fun buying new gear!

I read a lot of reviews on them and everyone seems to like them, I just have so many other warm hunting clothes I just can't bring myself to buy one.

There is a place in Rice that makes a simalar product at 1/3 of the price. I have been thinking about getting one for my wife as well.

Their website is abupholsterydesign.com

I got one about 10+ years ago when they first came out and I am glad I did. It is still in perfect shape and will last another 20 years I am sure. I use it only for deer huntng and it works fantastic. I used sleeping bags before and this is twice as good as a sleeping bag. Since I've had it I have not had to leave my stand because I was cold. This includes the -15 degree opener a handful of years ago or December bowhunting for 4-5 hours. They are spendy but this is one of those things that you get what you pay for. Mine will last 30 years so that is only $10 per deer season.

I have never heard of anyone who regretted spending the $300 or so on a Heater Body Suit. Yes, $300 is a fair chunk of change for most of us, but it is also far more than a sleeping bag.

It's not like you can run to your local box store and get a sleeping bag to do the same thing. Heater Body Suits are waterproof, have special zippers for easy on and off, zip up all the way and enclose everything but your head, and are designed so that a person can drop the suit enough to shoot but not all the way to the ground, etc. When you consider the cost of a nice hunting jacket or wool jacket, you'd be hard up to see a price difference between those items and a Heater Body Suit. And with even the nicest jacket, I've yet to find a "one jacket fits all" that keeps me warm for many hours. The biggest advantage of the Heater Body Suit to me is that you can easily wear light clothing (or clothing you already own) into the stand to avoid getting hot and sweaty and then put the suit on to stay warm for many hours.

To me, staying warm is priceless while hunting. I hope to own one by the time late season rolls around this year (I just need to convince my wife that being warm is priceless, or at least worth $300).

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.
    • Hookmaster
      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
