Let this amazing hunting technology give you the “unfair advantage” over big toms this turkey season.

Ever since man first washed himself in cold creeks and slathered mud all over himself, he’s employed numerous tactics to get as close as possible to game animals. Strategies have changed since those rough days, but the game is still the same. If you want to be a consistent and efficient hunter, you need to get deep inside the kill zone.
This is especially true when you are hunting turkeys.
One hunting product that has a rather unique position in the marketplace is the StealthScreen Hunting suits and base layers by HECS. To those with no experience using HECS Stealthscreen, the patented technology might seem unbelievable, but the reality is that only those who have not yet used this exciting technology remain skeptical. Those who have used the Stealthscreen for hunting turkey and big-game species absolutely swear by it. In short, the Steathscreen hunting suit is one of the most effective sleeper technologies of the hunting world.
Before you read another word, take a moment to watch this video and see what we’re talking about. This is amazing…
If you’ve ever hunted turkeys with a bow, you can appreciate how this ultra-mature Osceola doesn’t even react as the young lady draws down on him in the wide open. Now consider how close this hunter crawls up to these jakes…
So what exactly is going on here?
The HECS Stealthscreen technology is based on a fairly recent scientific study that suggests many animals, birds, and fish can detect bioelectric fields, such as the electrical signature that we generate through muscle activity. This, game biologists believe, is the unseen element that causes an animal to pick us out even though we are fully camouflaged, quiet, motionless, and exercising scent control. It’s happened to all of us. We’re in a blind or treestand, the wind is in our favor, we’ve made no movement or noise, and yet wild animals—for no apparent reason—zero in on us like a laser. What the critters are sensing in these situations, in many cases, is our naturally occurring electrical field. Both their ability to sense bioelectric energy and our generation of measurable, external electromagnetic fields are scientifically proven. These two facts led the Stealthscreen developers to the theory that eliminating or disrupting our electromagnetic signature could reduce or eliminate an animal’s ability to detect us in this way.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
The Stealthscreen suit is a lightweight mesh pant, shirt, and hood that incorporates a special conductive carbon fiber weave. You wear the suit as an underlayer, so you can still use whatever camo outfit you prefer for the temperature and environment you’re hunting in. Like the door of a microwave oven, the conductive interlocking carbon weave blocks and disrupts the electromagnetic field our bodies generate. This is the most time-tested and proven method for blocking electrical fields.
What animals actually see or sense when they encounter a human wearing the Stealthscreen suit is anyone’s guess. What we do know from observation is that many times they react in a manner completely different from when we are not wearing the suit. Rather than bolting away in a panic, animals seem uncertain and confused, yet remain relatively calm. They know “something” is there, but absent the electrical field, whatever that “something” is, it doesn’t elicit the typical nervousness and flight reaction that we’re used to seeing.
What is interesting from a turkey hunter’s perspective is that we know birds actually see these fields visually, and it is one of the main ways they know that a particular movement is from a living being. Take away the concurrent electrical impulse from that movement and it becomes like an “inanimate motion,” such as a branch swaying in the breeze. Movements like raising the gun or drawing the bow are completely possible even when the birds are looking in your direction and are at close range. When turkey hunting, it’s almost as if the birds are oblivious to your presence and you can get away with a surprising amount of motion. To turkey hunters, this alone is a complete game changer!
I wore a HECS Stealthscreen suit for the entire archery season last year and became a believer. My first whitetail encounter was with a doe that came bustling out of the woods as I was walking a field edge. She was about 20 yards away before she saw me standing in the open. She stopped, looked, did the head-move thing, then turned away and took a wide, unhurried course around me. Usually that would have caused a deer to snort and bolt for cover.
My second experience came when I was still-hunting through the woods along a different patch of edge cover. A pile of does and a four-point jumped out of the edge cover, looped around in the field, then came back—only this time closer to me than when I had busted them. They had me pegged, but they were not all that excited. After several minutes of milling around, the deer wandered off, seemingly unafraid. Soon afterwards, a flock of nine or ten hens came through to feed. I was still stuck standing in the open while the birds fed 20 yards in front of me. They never spooked or seemed even to notice I was there.
As you can see from my experience and those of the hunters on the videos presented here, the Stealthscreen suit does not make you invisible, and it doesn’t mean you can throw good hunting craft out the window when wearing it. When turkey hunting, you still must mitigate noise and large, fast body motion. What the suit absolutely does do is provide you with another layer of stealth that keeps the quarry calmer when it gets inside your kill zone. And that is exactly the time and opportunity you need to draw your bow or raise your shotgun to make those close shots.
While the Stealthscreen technology is a boon for turkey fans who like to hunt with a bow, it’s also great for shotgunners who want to get “slobberknocker” close to those big toms. But, hey… Don’t take our word for it. We were just as skeptical as you probably are now.
