Sometimes face paint, no gloves. I will wear gloves if I'm hunting on the ground.
I wear gloves and a mask always.
Yes facemask early to keep mosquitos from biting me and buzzing in my ears...I have a thin scent lok one with built in ball cap usually keep just under my nose so I can breathe in through my nose and out through the facemask which acts as a filter for my stinky breath. I know it doesn't eliminate the scent but I'm sure it helps. Otherwise when it cools down just my beard and a little face paint to break up my bright white cheeks, nose and forehead. I wear really Light gloves all year just for the camo. I tend to eat an spple when I first get into my stand as breath cover but have no idea if it really works...good excuse to eat an Apple
Glove on my left hand. I don't like having one on my trigger finger. For my face I wear my Octobeard and a little face paint.
Same here. I wear a mask and gloves all season long.
Bandana and gloves are a must for me. Those are the only 2 items that I spray with scent killer before every hunt.
Your hands are in contact with everything before you leave your truck and will pick up all kinds of odors. don't spread those odors by not wearing gloves........ you will bump the buck that you want to shoot!
Regardless of what you think you do to cover your breath, it's not enough. A bandana, soaked in scent killer and slipped over your mouth/nose anytime something is getting down wind, has saved me from being detected more than any other scent control measure I take!
I have several of those SA fishing face mask/neck gator things in camo patterns I wear early season. They're great as you can wear them like a face mask, or a baclava. A neck gator, a head cover, etc. Very versatile designed originally for offshore fishing for sun protection, and wind water spray protection. Big ocean little boat you can't keep sunscreen on.
Which makes them great for warm weather hunting face/neck/head camo cover.
I'm a duck hunter too and what we do is the old wine cork trick. Light the end on fire blow it out and it is like a scent free face paint and basically free. I do that during early season then switch to a face mask when it's cold.

I wear a mask and mesh gloves that cover my hands but are not warm. I was always told to cut down or eliminate the shine.
I use that $7 mesh mask from Gander Mtn for about 3 seasons now. I can't shoot with gloves. When cold weather hits I have one pair of super warm gloves that I have to pull off before the shot - OR what I moved to late season last year and plan to do this year is I bought a camo hand muff and I have four of those metal butane things that stay warm for hours and I put one or two in the muff and one in each boot.
But no gloves for me. I shoot a metal handheld release and it stays warm in the muff, I don't leave it hooked to the loop to get cold.
My ASAT leafy suit came with a matching head cover and I wear that while the weather is still warm. When it gets cold, I wear a Spandoflage pull-over mask that is surprisingly warm and doesn't bother my shot at all. I tried face paint early on but it was messy and much harder to remove than the mask. The only downside to the mask is a pronounced case of "hat hair"....and I can live wit that.
Unless in a blind I wear gloves and face paint. No exceptions for me
Please make an exception for ALL of the world, hh..........
WEAR THE MASK!!!!!!!!!!!!
smh. you old coot.
I agree with wear the mask.
