Haven't used a mask in years, and have never painted my face. Haven't seen a decline one bit in success rate.

Funny, I remember always putting camo on my face when bowhunting...when wearing blue jeans and a red/black flannel shirt.  Now that I wear camo clothes...I don't use facepaint.  I think all of it is in your head...I have yet to see a really good picture of someone in camo at a fairly close distance that can't be seen.  Pretty good gimmick they have...catering to the consumers camo needs, not what works.

I too do the beard. Face paint makes a mess and masks get in the way.

I agree with this.

September Beard. 
I do facepaint too but mostly for fun. I try to make myself look like duck dynasty.  Facemask or paint doesn't seem to matter IMHO

I prefer paint.  Only use a mask if mosquitoes are bad.

They are hard to find now, but I love spandoflage facemasks

They fit tight to the face. They are cool in heat and warm in the cold. They do not flap to effect hearing. Nothing to wash off and they give you that Ninja feel..lol.

Fear the beard!  When I wore them, I never seemed to remember to bring it up during the encounter.  I figure my face will be behind my bow anyway...

I keep a primos stretch fit face mask around my neck and pull it up when animals are close. I always think I cant hear as well with something (no matter how thin) over my ears. Even if I dont get an opportunity to cover my face, it still covers my neck, which helps.

I wear a camo buff headgear around my neck to keep bugs and sun off. Then it's handy to pull up when you get close. Also serves as a beanie or dew rag as circumstances dictate.
