Anyone use a shemagh for your duck hunts. My buddy just brought me back a green and black one from the sandbox, and I am interested to see if anyone else uses one for hunting.

No, But I have never duck hunted in a desert.

It might get a bit cold with one. They are made to be breathable and cool in the desert heat. Other then that I don't see why it wouldn't work. Never seen anyone use one for duck hunting though. I think I've seen someone use one for deer hunting during the warm part of bow season here in Texas though.

I have used one several times when I have left my other face masks at home or in the truck on accident. Works great and it will keep your neck and head surprisingly warm especially if you are walking with it on.

I use one here in SE Alberta. I have the tan/black version, fits in great with the semi arid prairie I hunt. Our season starts in early Sept, things are still fairly warm if not downright hot through Sept. Great piece of kit!

When I'm walking, even in below freezing temps, I have to take stuff OFF my head to stay cool.....
