Default Any tips for keeping your head warm while hunting?

Ok, how do you all keep your head / face warm while hunting and still be able to get a good anchor point?

It seems wearing a bulky face mask keeps me from getting to my normal anchor.

I use the under armour facemask and it works pretty good. It's tight fitting just like anything under armour. I wear my lightweight camo facemask over that. This is the best thing I have found to work for me.

Anything is better than nothing.

I wear a lycra head/face mask, topped with a camo beanine type cap.

Keeping the top of the head covered is important, alot of body heat escapes from there.

X scent makes a form fitting balaclava available on ebay. I wear a thick camo fleece type hat over that and I have a hood on my rivers west jacket if needed.

it hasnt been cold enough for me to worry about really bundaling up, but I usually just wear a camo UA hat, and a thin face mask to keep the wind off my face, and concealment.

It's gotta be under 25 degrees for me to wear anything other than a scent lok hood . Then I'll wear a skull cap over that. The only perk to living in a cold state....you get used to the cold pretty fast.

I use the same hoodie that I use under my snowmobile helmet. It is just enough to keep the edge off and not thick enough to bothe rmy anchor point.

I think mine is a thin Turtle fur bacalava and I had it on when I shot mine buck this year.

Default Head Warming

I am a volunteer firefighter. I grabbed an old nomex hood that we use to protect our ears and neck. I have a black one i wear and i put my camo face net on over top of it. You can picks these up from Galls, the fire store and Chief Supply, for around $30. It is well worth it.

Default Icelandic Hats with a short brim oilskin ball cap & veil

I've found that those wool hats with the ties that almost look like braids that run down each side of your cheeks and tie under your chin, (mine says "Eat Fish" on it) on top of a short brim ball cap, (mines oilskin like the Outback coats) with a camo veil over my face works well for me and my ears stay warm on the quad on my way to and from the bush.

I'm looking through the veil most of the time but seem to be able to see pretty well and can spin it so that the opening to see through can be used.
