You know, I never liked the

You know, I never liked the fact paint, only because I always stop in somewhere when I am heading home, and face paint in SoCal will only add to my problems.  However, I have noticed the last few times in the woods, that I am really getting annoyed with the scratchy and muffled sound that the mask produces whenever I move or turn my head.  For that very reason, I am strongly considering going back to facepaint.  Maybe I just need to get some that washes off with baby wipes or something.

The mesh makes my face look

The mesh makes my face look like it is sunburned after a day of wearing it.  I found a silky gator type mask in my hunting stuff that I didn't realize I had.  I tried it the other day and it was a lot better.

You're right about the silky

You're right about the silky ones hugging your head tighter.  It did start to bother my ear a little and I had to pull it away occassionally so that my ear wouldn't be squished so tight against my head.  I guess it needs to be tight so it doesn't slide down.

Well, I think that's the kind

Well, I think that's the kind I have.  Very skin tight, silky smooth.  Still don't like how it muffles the sound.  It's a primos full face mask.  I am headed to Bass Pro this weekend, maybe I'll look around at some.

I don't use either.  I just

I don't use either.  I just try to limit my movement and make every move deliberate and slow.  As mentioned before, I really think paying attention to the wind direction and your movement is way more important than your cover and concealment.

Of course, my theory is based on hunting mule deer.  I have heard that whitetail and elk hunting is completely different and thus requires a different method of approach.

I like the face mask better

I like the face mask better than paint, for reasons already stated. Plus, when it gets colder, I can put on a heavier mask to fight the cool, brisk winds.

Now, Critter, if you find a paint that protects from the wind, let us know. Better yet, that may be an invention if someone can figure out how to manufacture it.

Face Paint maker and user

So the reason people dont use face paint is its a pain in the butt why well hard to get off and pain to apply. I know as i wear it for all my hunting because I hate the restriction of the mask. We make an all naturally made roll on sweat proof cant even tell you have it on face paint. The best part is clean up rag and water we even include bidegradable cloths that you can use in the field. If you care to pesonaly message me I can tell you more.

bare

I go commando...I mean barefaced. Too cold and the glasses fog up with a mask; I'm too suspicious about the scent of the camo paint I have ready access to (if I can smell, they can definitely smell it).

When possible though I do try and blacken my face with a piece of charcoal, but usually I just go bare.
