traditional archery hat for hunting
hey guys, what hat do you guys wear while hunting with your recurve or longbows. Where can i find a hat for hunting, I have been just turning my regular cap backwards but sometimes i would like a little bit of a bill.

bucket hats work well as I can fold away the brim to allow complete string clearance.

hey wings! i would suggest trying a do rag. thats what i wear here in ohio until the cold weather sets in. they are very light weight they have no bill to get in the way of the string. give on a try. i bought mine at bass pro here in cincinnati.

I've had good luck wearing a runner's cap. They are usually made from cool max, made to soak up sweat before it drips into your eyes, and have a short bill. The only draw back is they are normally pretty bright color wise if that matters to you.

Scent lock has a short brimmed bowhunter hat. In cold weather a fleece woolie cap.

I wear an old Rancho Safari boonie hat ,works great and it has lots of MOJO. I've killed a lot deer with a stick and string while wearing it. it's the only thing you will see me wearing on a consistant basis.

Bass Pro Shops has a couple of short-billed ballcaps for bowhunters. I just picked one up last weekend in Bossier City. It was $9.99 and came with a Team Realtree t-shirt.
