Just looking to see what gear is pretty much must have gear, and I figured I could find out here.
Must have gear doesn't have to be ton or fancy to kill turkeys experience is what kills em if you got gun few shells a call you can make basic sounds with and camo army or the market kind will do and I would get chap mask and gloves and your set. Sitting still is way more important than camo style ad well as blending in

I have several of the cheap mesh ones, seems like they tend to get lost or forgotten at home by me , so I leave one in the truck, one in my vest etc.

I can’t stand face paint

if any of you have a dave owens (pinhoti man)Under armour with the draw string adjustment that you want to part with let me know.
I cant find one and it looks like it solves several problems.

I've only ever had one. It's a mothwing I believe, and I had all the holes sewed shut. Super lightweight and I wear it like a buff.

If talking essential gear don’t forget a thermacell! Only piece of gear I won’t hunt with after it warms up

I got hats for us that have kind of a veil, if breaths enough I don’t fog up.

Travis, where did you find the hats and how are they made?

I have a cap that has the mesh veil attached to the bill and sides of the cap all the way back to the adjustment window in the back. The veil is about 18" long in the front and tapers shorter toward the back. I tuck the mesh in the cap until I need it and then just let it drop down and can see through it. I covers my face and now totally white beard and it also covers the glasses that otherwise reflect light. I have tried about every other style of mask made and that cap is far superior to any of them IMO. But I have not seen that style anywhere in years. I would buy another like it in a heartbeat.

I have seen some caps with a mask attached to the sides but open under the bill more like a 3/4 mask.

To the OP, I highly recommend a mask to help break up your outline.

Look up Black Strap face masks.

I picked one up from a ski shop, when I was in Breckinridge.

I still wear UA, but the BS is the cats meow.

If I hunt 100x/yr, I wear a mask 100x.

No beard, but I'm African American and dont need face paint per say...so how does my skin tone factor in?
You have a distinct advantage over light skin. I wear glasses which works against me but only wear a half mask. I had trouble with fogging the glasses which I need to see at distances. A camo hat and a lower face mask works fine for me. Even a bandanna worn kind of cowboy outlaw style that you can pull up when the bird is coming can be a big help. I think that's all you would need.
