I know....TMI.....but I feel so much better having shared! LOL

Waiting another 7 days to jump on that airplane to CO is making my CRAZY!!! But it was time for the annual manscaping tradition.

Over the years I've learned that I am much happier in camp with less hair to catch dirt, sweat and stank.

From: Justin Davis
03-Sep-13
Yep. I'm with you. Less hair=cleaner and better hygiene

The rokslide manscaping thread is one of the most classic threads ever... Better hygiene and chics love it! Haha

You never know though, female sasquatch could be a major no-kill trophy. Might know some kinda kama sutra sasquatch tricks that will keep you in the woods for weeks! And my squaw keeps it skinned as well, but its nice to see a traditional every now and then. LOL!

TBM swears its da bomb! There was that one year the FS agent dropped by camp to chat....but damn she was a sasquatch from the look of those leg pokin' outta her FS issue Green Shorts. Scared me!

There are some things you just don't post on a site like this...

03-Sep-13
Do not blush Jordan, trim that chit with pride!

I do it 7 days before the hunt so there's zero itching. I'm scheduled for my sheering this Friday.

Would anyone like a small pillow made by my wife? If you order now, you can pick the cover.

From: SwiftShot
04-Sep-13
I start man scaping as soon as I break out the knives to sharpen. Not sharp unless they shave arm hair. Then when that's gone it's leg hair. I have a lot of knives by the way. Currently hairless and hunting.

04-Sep-13
WTF....you guys need to put on some spandex shorts and go ride bicycles or quit shaving and go kill something!

Caddis- Want to compare kills? Take a look at my trophy page And then you can talk crap. Haha. I shave my body prior to hunts. Superstitious or not I do it and I kill a good amount of critters. Oh yea and I shoot pink vanes on my arrows! But look at me. what do you expect? ha. What's up now?

04-Sep-13
Ill put my hairy ass aginst your manscape any day of the week and twice on thursdays. Maybe even twice on tuesdays as well

So what do you guys do in the middle of a two week hunt when you suddenly realize that you are out of moisturizing shaving cream and your razor is dull.

"Sorry boys, I know that bull is bugling up the canyon, but my manscape needs some attention cause its starting to chafe"...lol

04-Sep-13
Justin,

I think you were reaching for the TBM quote, "how do you like me now!"

From: Justin Davis
04-Sep-13
Yea that's exactly what I was going for haha!. And I don't ever use moisturizing cream or shave on hunts. I do this prior to the hunt. Thankfully I'm not a hairy guy to begin with. But I like the clean look and feel. Rather be clean then dirty. I first picked this up wildland firefighting. I learned to do whatever to be cleaner when I was in a dirty environment for 14 days strait.

From: Les Welch
04-Sep-13
Funny Tuedays and Thursdays are my ride days. I'll take the cleaner look, feel, and smell of scaping versus the squatch look....that only works if you're 60 years old, even then...its questionable......

From: Rut Nut
04-Sep-13
LMBO! I think maybe what Caddis was trying to say was: do what ya gotta do, just don't tell us about it! But if you just HAVE to tell us about it, for God's sake don't ever, never, ever use the term "man-scaping"! (on the BOWSITE ;-)

From: JordanMOFL
04-Sep-13
I am secure in my manhood enough to shave and call it what it is.....LOL! And inflicting the image upon my fellow BS'ers as I wait my turn to head west and hunt....well that is just plain fun! Get over it! If it make you uncomfortable....well draw yer own conclusions there Freud.... :^D

I may have to plow into deeper fields this evening.....damn hair pops up everywhere!

What's really funny is I usually grow a beard for hunting season........confusing.....

LOL!

04-Sep-13
"Plow deeper fields??!", lol, careful you don't go too deep or you might leave a rut.

I think you can cure that hair problem permanently with some type of hormone treatment.

I'm gonna post a pic of my hairy arse to combat the image that "manscaping" brings to mind.

I don't really care if its your thing to be slicked off like a ....well never mind. But seriously do you really need to tell the world?

"I don't really care if its your thing to be slicked off like a ....well never mind. But seriously do you really need to tell the world?"

Yeah actually we do. Been a Bowsite tradition for quite a few years. If it causes you to question your manhood or others, go see a shrink. Or better yet, avoid threads with manscaping in it.

Man scape is the only way to hunt. I like as does my wife.

Best thing I have ever man scaped: The Crack. It is amazing how little wipe it takes. Less time wiping = more time hunting.

And no I am not joking. It is great and would recomend a hairless crack to anyone... Liberating!!!

How on earth would you do a crack? Not sure I want to know and somehow I'm about to accidently hit "submit message" Bet Justin knows already anyway.

From: Justin Davis
05-Sep-13
Elk- yep. I won't explain. But pretty easy. Apply nair...wait a few minutes and then take a shower. The results are what were mentioned earlier. No more multiple wipes... But rather what I call "ghost wipes" or 1 wiper

This stuff sounds funny. But I'm dead serious! What once was learned on a wildland fire, I have implemented into my every day life! Hygiene level raised! And yes your wife will be happy! What lady do you know who like gross hair?

05-Sep-13
Oh sure, I get it. We're gettin' to the meat of the matter, no more beatin' around the bush!

You're not talkin' about a crack trim. Even a burrito, Mountain House and Budweiser bonanza should not result in "Crack Wipe" being necessary. You're talkin' about deforesting the blow hole!

Now, that Nair must nuke everything...what do you do about surrounding environs? Do you have someone do a tapered topiary trim? Leave the binary, either-or babboon-ass look? Keep going in depilatory delight?

What if your mono-brow just kind of flows into your sideburns, which flow into your beard, which flows into your neck hair, which flows into your chest and back hair, which flows Venus Flytrap-like along your crack to join the hair around the blow hole?

Where do you draw the line? I'd really miss my beard and hair, but I'd be afraid that I'd end up looking like a demented dandelion puffball.

If I kept going, I'd have to end up with sculpted eyebrows. I really don't want sculpted eyebrows. Those guys aren't my type.

So, it all goes? Then what? What happens when it all starts growing back at once? Doesn't it itch?

Chicks dig it? 'Cause they don't like icky hair? If I'm standing around scratching my blow hole or scootching my arse around on a rug like a dog, that's endearing?

This chit is complicated and confusing! I think I'll pack some extra baby wipes.

I've always heard trimming the underbrush makes for the illusion of a bigger tree, but dang, you guys gettin all up in your cracks and all?? I'm not ready for that.

Nair really works?

06-Sep-13
"Less time wiping = more time hunting" Wow, that is profound, and definitely worth the consideration except that is involves "crack stubble" which just sounds pucker inducingly painful.

"You're talkin' about deforesting the blow hole!" LOL that sounds like a volcano area which should have large signs reading "DANGER!! POISONOUS GAS EMISSIONS OCCURRING AT RANDOM! DANGER!!"

From: JordanMOFL

Fur on the face is a must....its elsewhere I prefer it to be controlled during a hunt. I draw the line at chaffing areas where stubble is NOT an option. LOL

10-Sep-13
Why thank you! You can stick leaves an twigs in it so it makes a natural face mask. You can even find snacks in there sometimes...lol

10-Sep-13
Just havin' fun with the thread Jordan. You remove whatever unwanted hair you want to get rid of, brother.

For the record, I think it would be more manly to skip the razor or nair and go with duct tape!

From: coelker
10-Sep-13
Just to clarify no stubble issue if you use the Nair method described above. Simple easy and only needed ever 3-4 weeks. 1 bottle last a couple months....

I know it is hard to understand, but it is very nice!

Duct tape? Ouch and it only gets about 80% of the hair.

I love the responses. I know it is not every ones bag baby. But it definitely works for me!!!

I appreciate it even more when I am working in the hot summer heat.

From: Justin Davis
10-Sep-13
coelker- you and I are on the same page. Guys who never try it will just never understand!

One they point I have...native Americans were badass hunters and outdoors mans right? They weren't hairy! Ha :)

10-Sep-13
Coelker - If you've actually tried duct tape to come up with that statistic, you have my respect as well as my humor!

Someone needs to post that clip from 40 Year Old Virgin..."You're a Man O Lantern!"

21-Oct-13
So I figured its time to do a midterm tally. Are manscapers better hunters? I suppose there should be 3 categories:

No additional manscaping done.

partial manscaping.

Full manscaping (does not need to include eyebrows)

Amount of manscaping and number of big game animals killed

I know, many of you were happy to see this thread gone, but I thought it was pretty funny.

Real men use duct tape. None of this naïr stuff. Sure if you pull to hard fast or wrong direction you could be not only with out hair but sewing up a sack. That's manly sewing it back up with fishing line and whiskey.
