    Cowboy hat

    Do any of you guys hunt with a "cowboy" hat or a hat with a brim all the way around. I like wearing ball caps but think I am going to start wearing a cowboy hat since I get a lot of sun exposure. So do you hunt with one and is it felt or straw? I think a cool one would be to get a rand (think that's where my dad gets his custom ones) hat made with a bugling bull and patriots logo on it. That would be awesome.

    I usually hunt with a ball cap. I've been shooting my now with a booney hat this year, I got horribly burnt last season so looking for some shade. It's been pretty uncomfortable, anchor point seems goofy with the brim folded up. I know I couldn't shoot my bow with a cowboy hat, rifle I have. Straw would be the way to go in summer, if it rains it will droop though.

    I am seriously considering on just wearing cowboy hats instead of ball caps. My dad calls me an idiot for wearing ball caps. I used to have a straw one until I grew out of it. Might be time to get one though.

    Better practice shooting with it on, I have a hard time shooting my bow with a ball cap on forward let alone my cowboy hat. I will however be wearing my cowboy hat at the rodeo which starts a week from today!

    I ALWAYS wear a cowboy hat! (See my avatar) Usually my hunting hat is my trusty old Stetson I bought in 1970. I have an orange slip over cover for the crown that I put on it when it is required. I have 8 different cowboy hats, a couple are straws.

    Somehow, I knew you always wore one!

    I can easily shoot with my ball cap on. My buddy shoots with his cowboy hat so I never thought it would really be no issue, especially with shorter axle to axle bows.

    A few years ago, after getting some minor skin cancer removed from the ears and cheek, I started wearing a cowboy hat. I don't hunt in it but if I did, I think I would like the short brim style that Wayne Carlton wears.

    I wear one sometimes, mostly on cold or wet weather though. I have an oil skin outback hat for rain and a Pendlton wool hat for snow. I have considered a visor in warm weather, I get hot in warm weather. I work outside so my skin is used to the sun by hunting season, I just like having a bill to keep the sun out of my eyes so I can see.
