Was wondering if any of you use sunglasses on bright days with snow on the ground, and if so what color of lenses do you use? My eyes are sensitive to bright light and was wondering if it might help with glare and picking coyotes out from their surroundings easier. Thanks!

I never wore sunglasses until I moved to the SW. I wear a shade of brown in my prescription glasses.

My transitions get very dark on those types of days, so much so that I can't hardly read the remote. But definitely need something on snow glare days.

I would get some quality lenses that are interchangeable, I used to use the M Frames all the time, now the M2's came out and they are much more ergonomically fit when wearing a cap. I use red iridium lens's that are polarized, the red filters a lot of the brighter colors giving you cooler visual especially in the white balance spectrum, it would be more 6000K vs the warmer 3500K, and it keeps your eyes more accustom the actual legit conditions.

a 6000 kelven range visual spectrum has more of the 400 nanometer blue in it if im not mistaken making it easier on the eyes as stated

I almost always wear prescription sunglasses while coyote hunting. It gets very bright here in Colorado, snow or no snow.

I have had more than a few coyotes coming to the call, and when I shift my head slightly, the coyote locks up and stares in my direction. I believe it was the reflection/glare from my lenses.

I almost always wear a wide brimmed, Indiana Jones-style hat, just because of how bright it gets out here.

I have a prescription pair of tinted shooting glasses, that I got from a gun shop in Lewiston, Idaho. Post 4, they are called. Not only do they help see the coyote, they are designed so that it is easy to look through your scope, without looking OVER the top of the frames. Also, the lenses pop out, if you want to replace them.
