So haven't been shooting super long but this is my first winter season and at night no problem, but during the day with snow on the ground and some sun I can't see the targets.

I have a pair of el cheapo yellow shooting glasses.

I just ordered a pair of RE Ranger Phantoms and am hoping that helps but wondering if others have similar challenges.

I guess I could wait until later in the day but what fun is that.

Thanks

That would be way too much glare for me to use yellow lenses. I would use the darkest lens color I had. In my case, that would be Randolph high-contrast brown.

or their CMT lenses - best for bright light conditions

Polarized lens will cut the glare coming up off the snow. Downside is the changing color of the sky as you rotate and/or tilt your head.

Snow can make things very difficult. A darker lens to cut the glare works for me. I prefer a purple lens for snow glare.

Put the yellow lenses back in the shooting bag and put on a pair of brown or bronze lenses.

Thanks I got a pair of the RE Ranger Phantoms and find they work much better than what I had
