Burn the tips of wine cork and use the tip to cover your face black. Doesnt smear, Not greasy, washes off easy.

my favorite face paint is my beard! That said, I will still streak on some eyeblack I have left over from my baseball playing years on sunny days. Cuts the glare too

I always use face paint. I don't go bananas, just a few stripes will break up the oval moon pie your face creates. Take a look from the river/lake of people in camo on the shore--their faces stand out like glowing orbs.

True, head-down works fine but with face paint I get two benefits: 1. I can watch the sky and incoming ducks and 2. I don't wear sunglasses in the morning because "baseball player" stripes greatly reduces glare.

And most people have been duck hunting well before they ever heard of the duck commander.

I always wear a mask or smear a little mud on my face if it's too hot for the mask. Been doing this for 15 years, way before DD. Paint or burnt cork will do fine, too. Whatever works. The guy that says he keeps his head down has others looking for birds and calling for him. Now THAT'S yuppie. I prefer to actually hunt, and not just pop up out of the blind shooting when someone else yells take 'em.

Yep love to watch the birds work that is part of the excitement when hunting. Painted good or face mask you can watch them without spooking them. Somebody that tells me not to watch the birds while they are workin will be the last time I hunt with them. Lol

Thats all I use, works well and 1 cork will last you a long time and it washes off easy.

I picked up a big stick of eye black at a store that sells softball/baseball equipment. It works really well. Also have used the black face paint from party stores that sell clown make up.

I always laugh when I look at a blind 400-600 yards away and see faces shine as they turn their heads looking for birds. A bird up in the air can see your white danger sign of a face from a mile away. That means they are watching your blind the whole way, they have spotted you long before you spotted them. Just one more chance for them to find something wrong if they are looking at the blind the whole way in.

I've shot many more birds when everyone in the blind is painted or wearing a face mask. I've also shot some very dumb birds that came right in while I was standing there frozen looking right at them.

Its not about looking like duck commander, its about killing more birds.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

This is all it is about. Duck commander was not the first to wear face paint and wont be the last. Most of the bow hunters wear face paint around here and have for years. All that spills into duck hunting and why would you not wear it or a mask.

Yes, it will work. We use it for face pant during baseball games.

Mask. Way better.

I would never paint my face. It runs, you have to clean it off, it doesn't work as well, not warm, you have to keep buying it...the list goes on and on. Mask, always a mask.

I use a face mask and then paint around my eyes with the same clearanced Walmart paint a few posts up.

Excessive? Possibly.

Effective? Definitely.
