Face net, Face paint or nothing?
« on: September 15, 2014, 09:13:09 PM »
Do you paint your whole face, use some light painting, use a face net or go out there bare faced! The world wants to know!

(I know if it is bitter cold many people use some sort of face mask. I am more talking about moderate weather)

Attach a selfie if you want!  LOL

I have been a face net guy for years but the last couple of years I have started using face paint. I like it better for bow hunting.

I have tried face paint a couple of times but and my skin does not take it well.......I have "sensitive" skin so I have to keep with masks.  I use nets earl in the season and move to heavier ones in the colder weather.  Plus, a full head mask of some kind keep the long blonde hair covered.......

I'll use a face mask during archery and turkey season. Nothing during muzzleloader and rifle season. When it's really cold I'll use a fleece mask.

I usually go with a net/mask or just a bare faced.  Last year a grew the beard out so that helped a bit.   I don't like face paint as much as I don'k like looking like a raccoon afterwards.   LOL  I will use it on occasion though, more for turkey as they are more sensitive to the reflection/color of the face.

Turkey hunting, always a mask.  Deer hunting, usually nothing except my beard.
