Shades

I seem to get GSR in my eyes on almost every other hunting trip. I think huntin with sunglasses is my answer. How many of you use shades for hunting and what is a good lense color?

Ussually just set up so the sun isnt directly in my face. The glare will flare ducks. But I guess if you look cool though. I would try to find another way to keep the sun out of your eyes.

I am guessing GSR is gun shot residue, or you are having powder blow back. First if you are experiencing this on the reg. I would be finding a new shell. However, I hunt with sunglasses quite a bit, especially one of my pits that faces S.SE. I wear my regular everyday oakleys when hunting, have never felt like I had an issue. No special lens color or anything, just keep that face down.

Did you completely ignore what I posted?

SPatrick yes I was referring to gun shot residue/ blow back. I go back and forth between x-pert and fed speed shok. I'm thinking shades are the answer. Sounds like my fishing shades should be fine.

I have had a bunch of issues with blow back from federal shells of all kinds for some reason, probably one of the issues right there. Yeah fishing shades would be perfect.

Walmart sells camo shades in the fishing dept, strike-king brand. They are actually pretty darn good. I have a couple pair.

I only wear them when its sunny though, as I don't seem to get blowback... even with speed-shok.

If you are getting blow-back every time out, I would spring for a good pair of clear safety glasses.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

I just wear regular sunglasses. I strongly recommend polarized lenses. This will help you see much better and you'll see less glare off the water. As for birds seeing glare? I just keep my face down. As long as you're still it shouldn't be too big of an issue. A lot of guys hunt with blued barrels that glare. And the water glares, don't forget.
