Couple tips for these Situations;

1) Rain; Consider getting Crizal lenses the next time you need to get your lens prescription updated. They are more expensive but are coated and do not allow water to build up on the lens. Kinda like waxing your truck, water just beads up. These lens also help with glare.
2) Fogging; Before you go hunt wet your finger tips and rub them on a bar of soap to create a paste, smear this paste on your lenses, let dry, wipe off with a soft cloth. Helps during the winter going from outside to inside too. If the woman of the house uses Ivory soap use this, it works best. (Why, I have no idea)

Good Hunting


Im definitely going to have to to try the soap trick. Will any brand of soap work? This will be my first year having to wear glasses out and i hunt alot of river bottoms so i run into fog down there all the time.


Yes, any bar soap will work, but for what ever reason Ivory soap works better than others. I should have stated above the soap is not 100% fogging prevention but it will DRASTICALLY reduce it.

Never noticed deer spooking from the glare but i hate wearing glasses because they always seem to fog up on me in cold temps and even worse when i start breathing hard.

I too have to try the soap trick! Thanks for the tip. I just went for a lasik consult last month but they said I'm a bad candidate and wouldn't resommend it due to me being 43/far sighted/ and having sjogrens(dry eyes.) figures

You can buy anti fog cloths you can use on your glasses. I have been wearing glasses since I was in my thirties. I can't say they ever caused me to be busted by deer or any other game. As Dewey does, if a deer is looking in my direction I drop my head a bit and look under the brim of my hat. https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywo ... vgg7_b_p20 .

I tried wearing contacts 1 season, I was so used to my glasses protecting my eyes I kept getting stabbed by twigs. So I started wearing clear safety glasses and at that point I decided I might as well just where my glasses. Fogging was a big issue when I first got my lonewolf, now i stay in better shape and go slower so there isn't any heavy breathing.


Try to get into binos that have an eye cup that can screw in and out. In for glasses, out for bare eye / contacts
