ACME Pro Staff hats?

Post by Cut N Run » Sun May 11, 2014 7:26 am

Given the proven turkey killing success of hunters lucky enough to have worn the ACME Pro Staff hat, I wonder if any more might become available anytime soon? I got a witness on how effective those hats are and how quickly one's turkey hunting fortunes can change for the better, simply by wearing one afield. I'd guarantee that some guys here would almost be willing to stand in front of an oncoming bus to get one. Personally, I would love to have a spare as a back up (without the bus part, please).

I'm 100% positive there's magic in those hats, even if they do have a built-in Russian roulette exploding hatband feature inside, where they might detonate totally at random (or if they come in too close contact with J. Bushman or Realtree camo). Wearing one while hunting is completely worth the risk, even in the event of explosion. Hey, you'd go out doing what you're passionate about. How do you beat that? If there's any possibility of more ACME Pro Staff hats coming available, I could find the money to obtain one. :)

There were only 12 of the original ACME hats made in a very limited run...no doubt will leap up in value and be hard sought after legendary turkey hunting collectables before long. I'll never part with the one I have. :D

I thought I saw J. Bushman with one on, and he was wearing realtree....I may have missed the explosion

I stopped using mine and retired it. It was definitely an unfair advantage. I could just stick a decoy stake in the ground and put that hat on it and they would come a runnin. Best ACME product ever made. Not sure what special fabric was used to make that run of hats but I understand it was outlawed and no longer available.

I promise we will have lots of ACME hats pretty soon.....I started looking into it before the season and got side tracked


Sill working on the design a bit but we will roll them out before next season for sure

I have an original....never tried it for fear of taking the fun out of actually hunting turkeys. If I should ever get into a rut like last season I will surely break it out and use it.

I use it kinda like an insurance policy I suppose.....But it can be had Scott, A couple of bills with Ben's face on them could persuade me to part with it :shock:
