got busted this year twice by deer and both times it was when i tried to hunt with my photo grey glasses on.

i have to wear my glasses to see up close and read. i can shoot for short periods of time without them and thought i would try them hunting. both times i got busted without moving a muscle for no apparent reason. they didn't wind me. they eyed me and turned and left.

anybody know if the lenses being dark could be a problem?

Reflection off the lenses I would say. A lot of guys need to hunt with glasses with no problem but if you don't need to why ad the chance. I was going to wear my polarized lenses but gave it a second thought because of reflection.

right you are about why take the chance. so i didn't take the chance anymore this season.

but the day that i have to uses them all the time is coming. i just turned 40 and probally sooner than later i will have to.

so you are saying that it was the reflection and not the dark lenses.

why i ask about the dark lenses is because of the deal about ground blinds without netting serams to spook deer. BRU

i wear polarized sunglasses in the woods. however i wear a hat to shade my glasses.

i swear by using colored lens to improve contrast.

you can find some hunting caps with a shorter bill. usually they go by bird hunting caps.

Thats what I would figure it its!! I've noticed that most have
some type of glare, or reflection, regardless of the color of the
lense!!!

Same here. You should never look directly at a deer with or without glasses untill you're ready to shoot. If you do they're gonna bust you. :-x

thanks guys. i guess i will have to hunt without the glasses until i have to. let me get this straight. there is not a coating for glasses that will not glare or glint. the very reason i wore my photo greys were i thought they wouldn't do that. BRU

I believe that they mean no glare to the individual wearing the
sunglasses! I've even noticed on some, the frames have a
glare to them!

Glare off the glasses is my vote also. I have gotten busted after I had to wear glasses. After I went to a groundblind with the screens it has solved my glare problem.
