In my giveaways,which type of hat would work best.the bucket hat,or a style of short soft brimmed hat I make.just curious.thanks,dan

The flannel bucket hat I got from you is definitely a cold weather hat and my favorite after it turns cool. The short brim might be better in early season. I have a mesh bucket hat for warm weather.

Your short brims for me. I have a short brim I never use.

Bucket hat suits me.

Bucket in the flannel material for cold weather. Bucket from materials I supplied in warm weather

From: White Falcon

The flannel, matches what I have in Swap thread.

Danny, I think those you made for me would be called bucket hats. I never heard that term back here until about a decade ago. I like them for year around. The camo you made me is plenty light enough for summer and early season.

From: 76aggie
Date: 16-May-19




I like the short, soft billed cap I got from you. It is lightweight material and excellent for most of our deer season down here in hot Texas.

When it gets cold, I have to opt for a wool watch cap but yours is still my favorite.

Here's a left to right, top to bottom...Woolrich bucket style from Monkeyball, Box Call hat of red/black wool from a shirt I sent to Dan. Stormy Kromer..really cold weather hat, and a Box Call camo. I also have a green/black hat that Dan made that stays in my truck so I always have it handy.

From: SuperK

Bucket until it gets cold.

From: old buck

I would like to find an old Army patrol or Ranger cap with the original soft cotton brim. Everything out there now has hard plastic inside the brim and they suck. I'm in central Florida and we rarely need cold weather head gear. In the meantime it's a boonie hat.

From: Box Call 11
Date: 16-May-19




I tried several of the wool radar caps,and there made way to small,and the hard bill.ended up giving them away.don't like a tight head fit.

From: Krag
Date: 16-May-19




I think the bucket style is more effective breaking up the outline of the head.

From: soldier

After developing skin cancer on the back of my ear I wear a bucket/Boonie style hat in warm sunny weather. The billed style military hats I wore for 26 years didn’t do anything to protect the ears.

I have and wear all kinds of hunting hats. Tossel caps, short brimmed ball caps, long brimmed ball caps, military issued patrol hats, military issued boonie hats, military style jeep hats, short brimmed bucket hats, military issue pile caps. All depends on the weather what I wear.

From: Live2hunt

George, you have my stormy cromer hat!!! Honestly, I have been wearing a dew rag thing. I have one for warm temps and one for cold. No brim at all.

From: JusPassin

My ideal would be bucket in wool flannel.

From: Vtbow

I like your bucket best. Conditions are ever changing here and nice to keep sun/water off my neck.

bucket hat made of wool, yeah, I'd like that. I mostly just wear a baseball cap.

Bucket hat for me.

From: Roadrunner
Date: 16-May-19




I like a boonie with about a 4" crown that will stand up and a 3" brim with wire in it. I've had to add the wire to all of mine, but the wire allows the brim to be flipped up for string clearance, and it will stay that way until turned back down for shade. The plastic "wire" doesn't work. I use insulated electrical wire and it will hold its shape.

From: Skeets

The bucket hat. In colder weather a larger size bucket hat with a hard hat helmet liner that looks like a snoopy cap worn under the bucket type hat for keeping the ears and the back of the neck warm. (Who cares about fashion or what you look like when it's cold!)

Bucket hat !

From: bluesman
Date: 17-May-19




Short brimmed soft hat , I like the idea of hiding my eyes from the game , and keeping the sun out too ! Thanks for your generosity !

From: DanaC

I wear bucket hats because a) short brims work, and b) a front-only brim doesn't shade your eyes from the side.

My 3-D hat is probably not suitable for hunting...

From: PeteA
Date: 17-May-19




Another vote for the bucket hat.

Hey Skeet, that's a throw back for me! Used to wear green hard hat insulators for cold weather hunts under my Jones style hat in the late 70s-early 80s! Still have a couple floating around somewhere.

Wool bucket hat ....You make great hats Dan-O ;)

Will, that hat stays on pretty good while hanging from the ceiling. Must have quality elastic!!

I don't know the "official" name of this style of cap, but, a black and red one (I guess like GDS's) in this style would be a fine topping, indeed...

Love my bucket hats Dan,.

From: DanaC
Date: 18-May-19




Just curious, what do you consider the 'cut-off' between 'bucket' and 'boonie' hat, as measured by brim width?

I've worn boonies in the past, thought the brim was excessive. I have one hat that could be called either, prefer 'just enough' brim. I only need longer brims when the sun is low in the sky, and I'm dumb enough to be facing the wrong direction ;-)

Use a dark green Stetson crushable felt type hat. Only cost about as much as two gimmie hats.

From: Riverwolf

I like the bucket hats for fishing mostly. I normally wear my crushable wool aussie style hat that has been cut and shaped just how I like it . The bucket style are really nice for warm weather also....

From: Timbukto

Jones style foam my favorite hard to find.

From: gluetrap
Date: 18-May-19




got both like both.but like Soldier the ball cap got my ears burned on the edges n peeled off, gets a little sun on the scar tissue and itches n drives me crazy. so the bucket is for me.

Did I miss what a short soft brimmed hat looked like?

From: Babbling Bob Compton's Traditional Bowhunters
Date: 19-May-19




The green Stetson crushable I use is called the Expedition. It sells for about fifty percent more than what I paid in the past, but it's a decent hat and the bill bends easily enough.
