I love shooting my scope for 3d, but I think it may be costing me the long run. It seems that I always 5 at least one target simply because I cant see it. It usually happens when I am standing in the sun and shooting into a dim area. I get so much glare I cant make out the target, much less the 12. How do you combat this? Do sunshades help much?

i have the same problem, a sun shade helps alot but your still gonna have to have someone shade your scope or peep now and then. not much else you can do.

watch the angle of the scope, once my scope was tilted little to far up and all I saw for alot of my shots was the items behind me. If you are looking the rest side of the bow turn your scope in a clockwise rotation and this might help eliminate the glare. Good luck, if this is unclear PM me and I will explain it better.

Make sure you wear a dark colored shirt and hat also. I found a white shirt = tons of glare.

A hat does more than shade your head

Have you tried a hat? If you are shooting with 2 or more people, they can shade both your scope and your peep, just make sure they are on the safe side of your bow. This means on the sight side of your bow.

Dark Hole Shots

If your talking about shooting a dark target from a sunny field it's tough, but it's even tougher when you shoot with a lens. I think the best answer is to get a scope that has a removable lens. HTM and Sure-loc both make scopes that allow the lens to be removed quickly and easily. You won't be able to shoot a center drilled lens, but you can't have everything.
