For the serious wingshooter, a pair of quality glasses is a must. Over the years, I've gone through many pairs of hunting glasses. I've found that good shooting glasses increase shooting success in the field. From swinging through a Canada goose over blinding, snow-covered corn stubble to picking out a rooster pheasant at sunrise, clarity and contrast are key factors to connecting with fast-moving targets.
When the targets are diving, darting mourning doves, having an optical advantage is key to bird-busting success.
A Labor Day dove hunt in the windy Nebraska Panhandle gave real meaning to the phrase "you can't hit 'em if you can't see 'em." Propelled by a 20-mph tail wind, fresh-from-the-north doves rocketed over like feathered bullets.
To the naked eye, these winged projectiles took the form of a gray streak, not hittable targets. With a pair of Extreme Hunter glasses, speeding doves could be instantly acquired and focused.
My EX-1 Extreme Hunters' Hunter Green lenses delivered incredible contrast for a brilliant, eyes-open shooting experience. With lightning-fast gun-to-shoulder sight pictures, I found the right leads on high-speed crossing and overhead shot opportunities.
Besides superior optical quality, the comfort and fit of the Extreme Hunter glasses matches the wingshooter's needs. My pair fit very well, never once needing adjustment through several boxes of ammunition. They stayed well out of the way as my 28-gauge pump zipped to shoulder. I quickly became accustomed to the well-textured nosepiece, which keeps these ultralight glasses planted firmly in position.
Another exceptional feature of the Extreme Hunters is lens-glare reduction. Besides being polarized to tone down incoming glare, high-definition transfer finish greatly reduces lens reflection. This is a necessary trait for total concealment from the prying eyes of ducks and geese.
Extreme Hunter glasses also provide peace-of-mind, in-field safety. The polycarbonate lenses are ANSI Z-87 impact resistant for essential eye protection.
I found the Extreme Hunter Shooting/Hunting Glasses to be an exceptional piece of hunting equipment. For the serious wingshooter or casual hunter, they are a sound investment for improved shooting and in-field safety.
