Mine did not. I think this would be a great product. Mosquito repellant camo paint.

I just started wearing a "face paint" called carbomask while deer huntin. Check it out. It's charcoal based and all natural. Comes off with no prob but only with water. Doesn't make a huge mess, and it's not greasy.

With the spitting and calling issue i just wear face paint. It don't get cold enough in SC for a mask and their annoying. Plus it just don't feel right not painting up before we hop in the boat.

I use this:

http://www.mackspw.com/Item--i-CORCFFS

the bottom part of the eye opening I have under my bottom lip and it isn't at all uncomfortable (yes it stretches that far). Its great when its hot. If it's cold I put on the UA facemask on under it with a beanie hat and am perfectly warm.

I don't like putting on makeup or greasy crap on my face. I usually have stubble on my face but go back and forth between shaved and bearded.

Wine corks, burn the end with a lighter. They work good and are easier to clean. I got the idea from another post tried and its the only way to go.

3- i always chew on the the little paice that seperates mouth and nose holes and then makes my nose wet and cold
4- face mask make it hard to hear

My mosquito net masks do none of the above. (And don't make me look like I think I'm going to war with a bird.)

I do not use either and it has not been a problem. tried it a few times bow hunting but it did not seem to cause the bucks to be any bigger so I no longer mess with it. I do not paint or cover my hands either unless it is getting into freezing temps. It is not uncommon to find myself in the tree stand in blue jeans and a T shirt. or in the goose pit in shorts and a T. sometimes it is just too hot to get all camoed up. :yes: I believe movement or a reflective surface gives you away more than seeing your face.

I agree, this is a very over thought out topic. Guy with facemask following the ducks/ geese like a bobble head doll, vs. the guy with no face coverage keeping his head still ill take guy #2 all day everyday. Now I know there is a guy with face paint on right now thats willing to argue. I never ever ever wear a face mask while bowhunting and ive killed many deer and have had hundreds up close and personal. Sure ive been busted up in the tree, was it bcuz i had no face paint? or is it bcuz they saw a 6' 240lb blob? Im willing to bet face paint wouldnt have changed the outcome of that moment one single bit. But hey get those burnt corks out if it makes you feel better. :thumbsup:

The burnt cork exfoliates my beautiful mug.

Also, why the old dig up? How long did it take the server to complete that search from that far back? :P

Fella's got to pass the time somehow, season's still a loooong way off.

And to the cover-up nay sayers, there are plenty of situations that can make it unnecessary. Fellow can always follow the birds' flight and call with his face and calling hand hidden behind a camo, or non contrasting, clothed off arm, as I generally do. But when hiding in the the relative open for wary birds, like kneeling in this rice levee cut for specks:

I'm not too cool to don a mask, as well.

I found myself agreeing with Rick Hall most out of all the posts (old and new).
I used to use face paint, but the hassle of putting it on and then completely removing it got to be too much. Plus it got on my gunstocks, clothes, gloves, etc. Just a mess.
I now use (slit) net masks exclusively, but wish there was a good compromise. I wear glasses and find that masks do not cause fogging. I also use the net masks in temps below zero F. and find them surprisingly warm.....don't ask me why! (also have a beard)
Often wrong, never in doubt...
