    What, pray tell, is the allure of painting your face to replicate a Viking warrior, Commanche war brave, Japanese kamikaze pilot or anything as such FOR THE PURPOSE OF KILLING A DUCK OR DEER???

    I don't freakin' get it. Are the animals so fierce that you should mentally intimidate them pre-firing of the modern weapon?

    Perhaps its just a 30-somethings way of saying "I'm the baddest-:censored:, :censored::censored: around these here parts of the forrest. IDK. :head:

    I don't do it but I know someone whe does and wears a ghille suit when he stalks deer. He is very good at it and he thinks I'm dumb for hunting in a stand. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

    I'm not talking about using camo face paint. I'm talking aobut the guys like Buck Commanders. Do you need to look intimidating to kill a deer? Maybe thats why I haven't got one this year. I'll have my wife order some black stuff off Mary K.

    I paint mine O.D. green and black striped, put on my black ninja pajamas and go walk around wal-mart to impress the ladies, not sure why everyone else does it though.

    Not meant to bash. Calm down there big fella. I just don't get it.

    Of course if you can't give me a reason then theres the all-defensive, fall back on it, "your a hater" card you can play.

    I'm not singling out crossbows, in-line muzzle loaders, Lazzeroni rifles that shoot 100 miles or anything else inn defense of a self-bow. I'm asking WHY someone feels the need to appear to be :censored::censored::censored: while hunting.

    THAT is a legitimate question.

    Do you wear a facemask or headnet while hunting? I don't like how the facemask blocks my periferial (sp) vision so I use camp face paint. I have been using it since I was a little kid(like my dad) when it had to be bought at an army surplus store. I guess I was just born and raised a :censored: :censored: :censored:. Sorry I don't conform to your standards.

    Well, without getting an answer to my question I think we know who puts on jagged lightning strike/tribal face paint.......:whistle:

    Why do people get so offended at everything so easily? Its a question for crying out loud.

    Apparently you can't read because I answered your question. It was a
    legitimate answer and apparently not the one you wanted. All you are
    looking for is someone to come on here and say that they are gay, cocky or whatever is the reason they wear the facepaint. You also asked why people were getting so riled up over a question,'look at how you worded it, you basically called me a :censored: :censored: :censored: for
    wearing facepaint.

    He said he wasnt talking about facepaint! He was only talking about the people who paint some huge tribal like symbol all over their face.
