An awesome beard is one attribute of the quintessential mountain man. The reasons for sporting thick facial manes while living in the wilderness are obvious and abundant. Firstly, shaving is a time-consuming activity; time a mountain man just doesn’t have. Secondly, the noggin is one of the most important body parts to keep warm in the winter, and a beard is a great way to do so. Finally, there is something raw and natural about a beard—perhaps beards help men become one with nature.

In recent years, hunters have learned from the wisdom of mountain men and have started growing impressive beards of their own. We explored the Internet to gather the top 20 most awesome hunting beards ever.
