Sun exposure after a FUE procedure
I recommend you limit sun exposure or a sun burn for the first 3 months after a procedure. At this point, you do not have fun sensation in your scalp, therefore you may get a sun burn and not even know it. Simply wear a hat and the hunting trip is acceptable. Have fun, be safe.
Sunlight after FUE
Wear a loose hat and be careful when you're taking it off and putting it on, and a hunting trip should be fine. You could probably get away with just sunscreen too assuming all your scabs are off, but a hat would definitely be the safer choice.

It is not Advisable to expose your fresh hair transplant to long hours of sun exposure. A sunburn could potentially harm the grafts. Simply wear a hat or buy some sunblock spray. After about 3 months you should be ok!

FUE 10 days ago
Yes, you should be fine to go hunting, definitely wear a hat and protect your transplanted area from the sun, for at least the next 3 months. If you are unable to wear a hat, then definitely sunscreen to the area, and reapply!
Can I use hat after 10 days
In my practice after hair transplant surgery I give my patients a special hat to cover their head when they are outdoors. It is a light and comfortable hat without making pressure on the recipient area. On the other hand after 10 days your new transplanted grafts became secure . Wearing a hat will not damage your grafts. All the best
