ChuckC, I am aware that you qualified your question with a stipulation for not responding with gloves or masks suggestions, but I find myself wondering whether you have tried loose mesh summer gloves.


I have a pair of camouflage gloves made from some sort of airy open mesh flat-ish plastic fibers that I wear during very hot humid Illinois August weather.  They fit my hands snugly.  I do not notice them being significantly warmer or causing an increased hindrance to gripping or finger movement compared to my naked hands.  In fact, for unknown reasons, my hands seem to perspire less while wearing them such that my grip is more dexterous and secure compared to my bare sweaty slick hands.


I have had them a long time.  I no longer remember when or from where I acquired them.  They do not have any identifying markings or attached labels.  I do not know whether such camouflage mesh summer gloves are well known, common place, or readily available.  I just have a pair.  They conceal my snow white German hands.  They work fine for me.

I hear ya Fallhunt, no problem. I have a cabinet overflowing with hats, gloves, masks, scarves.  I like to try things but don't always like what i find.

We are all a little different in our wants and likes.   That's a good thing.

I currently wear gloves, but really would rather not if there are other options.  Same with a mask.

Dan.  Hmmmmm, maybe

Try rubbing moist dirt on your face and hands. It works and is easy to wash off.

I just darken my face with charcoal.  It's interesting how many guys hunt bare-faced, though, and kill elk/deer.  So I don't know how important it really is.  Doesn't hurt, and I need all the help I can get!

I like using spando   flauge but since I'm in central Florida where it's HOT even December sometimes I'm going to try the acrylic paint thing. 
However I pulled out some of my cheap artists acrylic paints from Michaels or Walmart  and it works the same and at a fraction of the cost.

I like burned cork which acts like black face paint.  I've used the tri-color face paints and they work well but can be tough to take off.  One man I hunt with uses Halloween face paint.  He buys it right after halloween when it's on sale and a couple of tubes lasts him all year.  He says it comes off with soap and  water.
