What do you use to cover up your face?

Postby Skeet123 » Sun Nov 25, 2012 6:37 pm

Face paint, mask, or just keep my head down?

If theyre close enough to see my face,they are close enough to die. Just keep your head down and dont show it to them until they get that close. With all that being said, I like using face paint and drawing glasses, mustaches, and french goaties on my face just to get a good laugh in when we go to breakfast or lunch after the hunt. The chinese buffet waitress facial reactions are priceless and it keeps the guys that think you have to cover your face happy that your whiteness is broken up.
does having multiple screen names on a forum and having a conversation with yourself make you an extra special rock star hunter?

I prefer burnt cork. I can use the same cork for a couple years (unless I lose it), but they're only $2 for a 4 pack at Walmart. Comes off very easily, also.

I use paint until the temps get rediculously cold. Then the face mask comes out. I'll have to give the wine cork a try once I run out of face paint.

I mostly use face paint and a mask late season. But the paint is a pain to take off. I love the comments about getting strange looks as you go for breakfast. I think we have all experienced that.

Beard. Tried face paint once and don't like the way masks can move around and block my vision.

It comes off very easy. One baby wipe will do it. Burn end of cork with lighter..blow out fire...wipe on face.

It doesn't have a greasy paint feel on your face either.

Usually just keep my head down. For layout blinds and late season, I'll use this stuff called carbomask. It's marketed to deer hunters. Made of clay and activated carbon. It comes off easy with a wet wipe or paper towel.

I might have to try that cork idea. Paint is messy as hell.

It's so simple to use you'll wish you tried it sooner. Just make sure you get a real cork and not the synthetic stopper.

Does Red or White work better? Domestic or imported? :biggrin:

As long as its not dry...region or color isn't important. Not a fan of the vintage stuff though;)

Exactly. I usually just pour a little water from the bottle onto a rag, and it wipes right off. Like Gr8t said, it's very comfortable- can't feel it at all. I will say it takes longer to get the cork burning nicely than you'd expect, maybe 30 seconds. Go to Walmart, and look where the kitchen utensils are hung up- there are little bags of corks in there for about $2 for 4, and those 4 will last you probably 20 years.

face netting if the sun's right in our faces, but also keep our heads down. I plan on taking a hole saw and some black fiberglass screening material and making 2 inch peep holes in the side of the plywood blinds and stapling the screening over it in the inside just low enough so when we look, the top of our heads are below the top of the blind.
