I was wonderng what all of you guys that are still wearing your class rings do when hunting? Do you put facepaint on it? hold it behind your back? Surely you camo it some way...don't you? I mean with all of the effort put into the war paint it would be awful to flare birds with those big ole shiny rings on your fingers...

At the risk of sounding like a smart butt, I believe if I wore one, I would just take it off.

I'd rather wear my letterman's jacket than my ring. Hen's tend to flock to it.

I put all my rings on the platinum chain around my neck. It's like a lanyard filled with bands, but with much more street cred

Does your drake gear have butterfly collars and you can unbutton it halfway down your chest too?? You could start a new line and call it Drake "Guido Style"!! :mrgreen:

I take my wedding ring off A. So I don't lose it messing with deeks B. So it is not like a beacon of light to the ducks.

Now you're feeling my style.... It's completely made of polyester as well. Keeps a nice sheen to it. Sure beats that nasty old filson I used to wear. Plus, all the chicks at the Buena Vista love this new look 8)

:-? :-?

Alas , young man, you are showing your youthful ignorance.... :(

Now, if you are hunting a flyway rice field, yes, you can get away with no camo and no face paint!

But if you are hunting the most wary Gadwalls of the TN river system, you BETTER be well camoed, painted and hidden, or you will become another of those loosers that constantly complain that there are NO ducks or the ducks just won't work for you, etc....

As for Class Rings, My High school ring went to my baby brother, Rings were still Gold back then, and I "seldomly" wear my bama ring, it is much too ostentatious.

Wearing a ring that sticks up is not a good idea. Most industrial work places will not let you work with rings on.

You can catch them on things and rip your finger off.

So no I leave my U of A ring at the house.

X3 theres a certain point where it gets ridiculous, I've done alot of trial and error in the field research and decided that face paint is the point where I stop. Although, it is becoming a staple amongst Waffle House patriots.
