This will be my seventeenth season. I never knew who Duck Commander was until last year. I rubbed wet mudd on my face in 1997. I guess you could call that face paint also.

To me this is a DC follower. :bow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThPdd7rhYIE

If you have your head down - how the hell do you see the ducks?


I suppose if you have the sun to your back it probably doesn't matter either way.

I used to use half masks until no one makes them anymore. I switched to the burnt cork 7+ years ago. Unfortunately, you can still be called a yuppie, since you drink wine :beer:

Does the burnt cork wipe off easy?

You need water and your sleeve. It is fine early season, but is a **** when the water is next to freezing. It will come off, but inevitably you will miss some. Baby wipes will remove it easier with less risk for frostbite than marsh water in January.

I'll deal with that if I don't have to buy it. I heard the synthetic corks are really bad for you though. Anyone know I that's true? They probably don't work as well either

The synthetic cork just doesn't burn the same. It will kind of melt. Do you want melted rubberized material on your face? Stick to good 'ol cork cork.

I personally use the same dead down wind facepaint that I use while bowhunting. When I decide to go with a facemask, I use the facemask from Sitka Gear. It fits well and is really comfortable. When it gets colder, I use the balaclava from Sitka. It's made from the same material as their traverse shirts and is great for when the temps start to drop.

Blake,

A couple of ideas/warnings.

1-Unless you are a rare form of duck hunter, have multiple lighters. They always either won't light or get wet. Also, try a grill lighter (butane), they light easier.

2-Put all cork, lighters, etc. in a plastic bag and keep it zipped. Freezer bags are the best since they are thicker.

Actually I'm only 16, so I don't drink. Just found one laying around, and yea, I made sure I didn't get a rubber or plastic one ;D

I don't wear paint much. But when it's necessary, I use this bowhunting stuff called carbo-mask. It dries flat so there's no shine like some face paint. They have it in several colors. It's made from clay. Washes / wipes off real easy.

I've used black stinking river mud to cover up before. I don't know if the mud, face paint or masks works the best because every duck I've asked was dead.

I don't drink but my local hardware store carries real cork corks and they are pretty cheap.
It does work good. I sometimes wear a mask but do like the ease of just smearing on the cork.

I dont think that everyone started after the duck commanders. Theyve been around for 40 years. Weve always worn face paint. Also with face paint you can have different colors.

I've been wearing face paint for waterfowl hunting since before it was cool........ I always wore it when I was bowhunting and figured if it worked for that it couldn't hurt for waterfowling. I'm about 5 years older than Phills oldest son so I've been wearing it longer than they (the boys) have.............

I don't like masks. I am an eyeglass wearer so masks either hamper my vision or cause my glasses to fog............

Only a NOOB would say duck commander is for NOOB's, been watching those videos for 30 years. :huh:


I wear a face mask, no need to cut a hole or anything in it, they make them for callers. Just google callers face mask or something. I think a spandex face mask is a lot less itchy than dried make-up.

Brilliant suggestion. I just checked mine, and they sell them as well. I was having a heck of a time trying to find some, and I kept loosing them. Obviously free is better.

I am also going to check with local wineries (Live in Canada - Niagara Region) They usually have wine tastings. THe problem now, is a lot of wineries are using the synthetic corks or screw tops even going to boxed.

For the most COMFORTABLE and versatile facemask out there (doesn't touch your face, virtually eliminates glasses fogging, you can work your call, spit tobacco, talk/eat/drink with it on since it's supported on your hat, not your face...) check out the new BunkerHead system:
