gator type mask for me. I think mine is an Ol Tom brand


I may not be smart but I can lift heavy objects

I have a shotgun so I have no need for a 30-06.....

I have that for my shotgun. The fabric holds moisture so you need to remove it after rain events.


Other than that, How was the show Mrs. Lincoln?

I wear a veil. This is old school, but the mesh masks weren't being made when I started. The paint I bought wouldn't come off easy and I was in a 3-piece suit job during the week. Facepaint wasn't going to be a good idea. However, camo mesh was being sold by the yard at the sporting goods store, so I bought a piece and tied it to my boonie hat. I've stuck with it ever since.

It gives me a benefit. I can pile the mesh on top of my hat and keep my face clear. When the floor show starts, I simply dip my head and the mesh falls down. I have it tied just tight enough that it covers most of my face, but leaves an open slit up at the brim, so my view is unobstructed.

Mesh mask. It's kind of airy, and my glasses don't fog up

When a very good friend of mine wanted to get into turkey hunting, he asked me if I would take him out with me. First time out, we were set up on a hillside overlooking a stretch of creek bottom. I set up about 20 yards away and uphill of my buddy. A gobbler answered my calling and literally was on his way, on the run! The tom came up the hill to our left and my buddy shifted ever so slightly. When the bird was about 25 yards away, I gave a sharp put and it stuck its head up. The Remington SP10 barked and the branch next to the turkey's head dissapeared and the turkey ducked down. I gave another put, turkey stuck its head back up, and another branch dissapeared! At this point the tom had had enough and took off and my buddy took his third shot on the wing... and missed again! I walked up laughing and asked him what happened? The head net he was using stayed in place when he turned his head and the divider between the eyes blocked his right eye. Some quick knife work took care of the divider. I then said "we just had all the fun of turkey hunting and he still had his tag, so we could still hunt". He said "leave me alone with my misery", so I replied "okay, but that was one of the biggest tom's I've seen here"! Lol! He said, "GFY Dean"! Lol! Moral to this story, if you're going to use it, make sure there aren't any issues and it works like you need it to. We've had a lot of great times hunting together for over 30 years, wouldn't trade any of it away...

No Mary K cosmetics for me.

Can’t beat this deal for $16.99. I kept a few and gave the rest away.

Baseball hat with attached mask with eye holes. Only a full headnet when the black flies are unbearable.
