Face masks

Post by hoobilly » March 14th, 2019, 12:53 pm

I hate traditional turkey net masks and have been using this type of set up for about 6 years. What do you all use?

3/4 with adjustable cord. I hate a 1/2 and full mask. I should have bought 10 of the one I have as I love it. No clue what I will do when it is time to replace it.

I use a 3/4 with adjustable cord. I bought 5 or 6 in original bottomland a couple years ago.

Full camo mesh with open eye area supported with a wire, for adjustment and form fitting for eye area.
Would be great for a person wearing glasses :thumbup:

Sure glad I shed my glasses, after getting Lasik surgery :cheers:

I use full head net with the wire glasses hole. Wear sunglasses a lot so it works pretty good.

When I heard quakerboy was going to stop making their half wire rimmed facemask a few years ago I bought a half dozen. I'd still be on the first one if I didn't leave them with a pair of gloves in the woods all time lol

My turkey-killin' hat has a facemask sewn in it. Just lift the hat, facemask drops down. The facemask is a torn, mangled mess, but it still works. Been wearing that hat since 1995 and don't know what I'd do without it. Folks laugh at it all the time, but it's my mojo.

I like many kinds of mask. I have wore full,3/4, and 1/2 Mask over the years. I like the old cloth full that were made by Realtree/Spartin from years ago. They did not allow me to hear good. So I switched to the HS Strut 3/4 net Mask. I like them. Mostly when it was hot. But I switched to a new style of 3/4 Mask with a thin cloth. I think I got them from Bass Pro. Even though they are cloth I can still hear the birds gobble.
Everybody is different. Personally I do not like the spandex mask at all. They are too tight from me. Plus it is hard to call on a mouth call. And they feel weird on my goatie.

I never use a mask. Sometimes I'll use a camo bandanna, but most of the time I don't even bother or get in a hurry and forget to pull it up over my face when needed. Terrain up here plays a big part. Rarely do I get to see a bird come In from a long ways off or call up large numbers of birds at once. Usually by the time he shows up he is within tss range.
