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

Thats funny you should bring this subject up about these glasses, I bought a pair at walmart last week and used them this gloomy raining weekend we had for opener, what a difference, I cant wait to use them for deer hunting, u can really pick out images, when ducks are flying in trees u can pick them out much better, should have used them years ago crazy.gif

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
