    Yeah, I wear one quite a bit these days. Mainly to keep the weather off my glasses and to keep my hearing aids from shorting out. Can't see and can' hear either...LOL.

    Here are a couple photos of a "bull dogger" from back in the day. I've gotten away from this style and gone with the wide brim...one in camo and one in orange.

    I have been wearing wide brimmed hats (called cowboy hats by everybody) foe many, many years. They have been made of lots of types of material...felt (mostly wool), fur ( beaver, rabbit, etc), leather and plant fiber. Unless they are made of light weight material or open fiber.....they are all hot! I have a couple of really nice "straw" hats that are really hot. They are close weave and don't breath well. Hold them up to light and if you can't see light thru them, they will probably be pretty hot.

    I have pretty good collection of boonies -- regular, gortex, mesh. Same theory, brim all the way around. In addition to keeping the sun and rain off your neck and out of your ears , your profile doesn't change when you turn your head, so an animal won't as easily notice the bill of your cap moving around when you move your head .

    I like those, too. I am paranoid about getting asked to help move cows or something if I wear a cowboy hat. Its like wearing a hard hat to a construction site. Sooner or later somebody is going to ask you to do something. I try to avoid work at all costs, even at the cost of burning the back of my neck. I heard on the radio that suntan lotion doesn't protect against skin cancer, just burns, so it is even more important to cover up and protect yourself especially at higher altitudes.

    I prefer a big old flat brim "Amish Style" and the shades are a must for little swagger!! I can barely shoot a rifle with that big cumbersome thing on, so you might want to go with one like big moose

    I will mention that I treat my hats with Scotch Guard a couple times to get them waterproof. It really helps when you're out in the weather.
