    Well, my spotter has a sun shade that slides up. That must cut down on some of the glare. I've been in a spot a time or two where I had to peek over the top of a hill to take a look. When doing that, I take of my jacket, get that over me, the spotter, etc. then crawl up. I think what sheep and other animals are looking for is movement and patterns. A bright glare where there wasn't one before will at least draw their attention to you.

    Another thing I try to do is to look "through" obstacles from a short distance. If you're right behind a small bush with a small hole, you can peek through and get some natural camo.

    Of course, this would be the biggest problem when the sun is mostly behind the critter. If it's behind you, then getting silhouetted is the bigger problem.

    However, he would have fallen the trees across the road and his "army" would dig up the pavement, so it shouldn't be an issue. Zombies would never make it to his hidey-hole, LOL!

    Anyone have any methods, other than using nylon stockings.

    I've had quite a few pronghorns react, several wild turkeys, and one bull moose. That said, the percentage of occurence has been so low I've never stressed much about it. If I hunted pronghorns every year I'd prolly try something.

    I've seen "waffle" lense covers for sale - I think military shooters use them frequently.

    If the Viet Cong is your quarry, perhaps.
