Here's a tip for those of us with long hair: Long hair
can be a real pain in the kiester when out in the woods, it
snarls, tangles, etc. Clubbing your long hair can help you
avoid this. Start with a 1" wide strip of linen or wool
(wool works best, as it grips the hair better), and tie
a half-hitch in the middle of the strip, leaving the knot loose and untightened. Pull
your hair back as you would normally for making a ponytail,
then slip the half-hitch around it. Pull the ends of the strip
tight. This part is more difficult than it sounds; you may have to
ask your wife, girlfriend, sister, etc. to show you how to do it.
So now you have your hair back in a ponytail, with the two long ends
of your fabric strip in either hand. Now you take those loose ends and wrap
them around the ponytail in a cross-hatch pattern, down as far as you like toward
the end of the ponytail, then tie them off in a square knot.
The finished look is basically the same as that of a horse with
it's tail wrapped up for a polo match; or, like Robert Deniro's hair in The Mission.
It will keep your hair neat and unkinked when out in the woods. Since you can't see while you're
doing it, it takes practice--it took me months to learn how to do it, but it's well worth
the effort when you aren't yanking your hair out by the roots when trying
to comb it out on the trail.
