Covering your face
« on: August 22, 2015, 09:01:24 PM »
I was wondering how many people hunt with face masks, paint or nothing on their faces. I have  mask and have used it but I'm not sure how truly effective it is since I have called in bills and had them within range when I'm not wearing the mask. What do you guys do?

Paint or more than likely nothing. After 2 days in the field, I have enough hair on my face to stop the shine. A whitetail will pick you off even 30' up a tree, but a bull won't unless you move. JMO

I go au' natural with the beard. Less to wash off or rub onto everything that goes over the head.

Sitka's face mask is what I like to wear. It's an open mesh type material which makes it comfortable to wear and covers up your face well.

I used to wear a mask, have transitioned to face paint...but might just scrap it all together lol I think facial hair gets the shine off enough and wearing a hat blocks the sun pretty good too.

Sometimes use face paint but most of the time to lazy to put it on. I just try to make sure to never make eye contact.

A 2 day beard does it for me, but haven't had any issues with clean shaving either , its the movement that gets you, just stay still they will step on your toes if you can  play the game that long.
Bury me with my bow,I will die with it in my hands hunting elk.

up until about 3 years ago I always painted my face. I stopped and it doesn't seem to matter. I just don't shave in Sept and it seems to do the job.

I just picked up this from Promont:
http://promontoutdoors.com/product/bedded-bull-camo-facemask/


I have heard guys call them Shmaugs, Buffs, Neck Tubes, whatever. I really like it so far, it's lightweight, easy to breathe through. And it protects my neck from getting fried in this August sun.

I had a hard time feeling my anchor points when I had a mask on.  I hate messing with paint so I just have the beard.
