Who hunts with Shooting Glasses?

2 posts in this topic

Wearing a pair of yellow lense shooting glasses might just be the best thing I've done in the last couple years to improve my hunting & shooting. I would have never thought a cheep $10 pair of glasses could do that but I think they have.

The glasses improve contrast, especially with low light and cloud cover. I can pick the ducks out of the sky much easier, and I can also distinguish drakes from hens much easier as well. Like I said, its a contrast thing and the differences between dark and light are applified with the glasses on.

I started hunting ducks while wearing them last year. I had commented to my buddy about them last year that I thought they improved my vision. This year, he was wearing a pair and he said the same thing once the weekend was over, that the glasses made a huge difference in seeing the birds, as well as identifying what they are in flight.

I was just curious if anyone else hunts with shooting glasses, and if they've noticed the same things, or am I just imagining this? grin.gif

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
