Ice Beard?
« on: Nov 29, 2012, 10:03 PM »
Anyone else sprout a beard for the hardwater season? I started mine Sept. 1st with the opener of bear season and I'm not shaving until the end of March or the last day of ice fishing, whichever comes later. Lets see some pics! I'll post mine tomorrow.

Gotta keep it clean and conditioned!  ;D My girlfriend is getting mad at me, she's tired of having me look 40!

i grew a beard for no shave november, but i'm getting tired of the itching and shampooing my face.
plus it makes my windproof balaclava uncomfortable to wear.

I started one in Oct. Because of work I have to keep it trimmed. I have a bunch of grey showing up, starting to show my age! Hope to have a pic as soon as I'm on the ice!

I've had a mustache since 1981 and a full beard for the last 5 years. The wife is always after me to dye it because it's mostly gray.

don't need a ski mask when you got a beard. best part about having a beard is no wind burn

I keep the beard year round and don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. Best part is the girlfriend likes it so I may never get rid of it  :P

 Used to start growing one at the beginning of bear season, and cut it off in spring.  Then for about 6 or 7 years, I wore it year round.  Shaved it off about 9 years ago, and have not grown one since.

I have not shaved off my beard since 1996, it scared the kids ;D
I keep it tight in the warm weather and bush it up for the winter
A beard is nature's balaclava ;D

We started growing beards for the bow season. When you got your deer, you shaved, everyone would know you had scored. I liked the beard and kept it. I years later took a position at work that required to be clean shaven. When I retired I grew it back, it had a lot of white in it? My wife said she didn't marry Santa Claus and it made me ten years older. I trimmed it to a goatee, which she liked. My ice beard from years ago is to the left.

My esteemed colleagues,

It would seen to me..the question should be...why would anyone want to shave?

I have not shaved in 13 years...and I never will!

Cheers,

Ice Beard

Had a mustache since I was 20 and had a beard since I was 30. So 29 Years now. I would shave them both if I could look only 40. The biggest thing is my upper lip is so white it would scare people.
