In your opinion does growing a beard for deer season help, or possibly hinder, your chances at harvesting a buck? If you do follow this practice, can you post your best Grisly Adams picture?
I sited in my muzzleloader last weekend to take advantage of the early season for muzzleloaders here in Texas. I am running 100 grains of powder under a Nosler Partion 250 grain .451" diameter pistol hunting bullet. This load is shooting about 1.5 MOA with the stock iron Tru-Glo sites. No scope.
Two weeks before gun season opens those with smoke poles get first crack at the woods. Since I didn't get to deer hunt last year due to the move I am excited about hunting again this year. Take it easy,
Hmm. Guess I can't hunt deer till I sprout chin whiskers like my grandmother...
My husband doesn't hunt but does sport a bear Oct-May (or the first 70° day). Maybe I'll tell him it's required if he wants to keep the beard.
My project thread Agriculture collects solar energy two-dimensionally; but silviculture collects it three dimensionally.
Started mine about 6 weeks ago. Every year I tell myself I won't ever shave it again and that I'll make a coon-skin hat and some buck skin pants. Then my wife says "nah....its getting too long....if you want some you are gunna shave that shit off your face...." So I shave it, and a man just don't look good in a coon-skin hat with a shiny shaved face.

I almost stated that women weren't required to, but hey if you can - why not? LOL Back before I could grow one I'd ask all the adults why they grew one around Oct and that was the reason I'd get. Of course I've seen my dad maybe 5 times in 36 years without a beard.
I hear the same thing - including get away that tickles! LOL
I have found that I get better cheek weld contact with some facial hair. That definitely comes in handy when it is cold as hell and you need to get into a good shooting position quickly. Plus, it gives you a reason to get scraggly as all get out during the fall!
