    Brown County in Green Bay Wisc. is having their green bird shoot on Saturday the 17 th. So which of my old SBT's will bring me the luck of the Irish? McIthaca, McFox, McParker, or McLcSmith. Even got the kid to shoot one of the old ones. Should be a great day!

    What lens do you use for green targets?

    Depends on background and lighting conditions. :)

    HI
    Decot has a blue lens, I heard that these were developed for lime green targets.

    Purple also works ok, for me, YMMV.

    Now if the back ground is light green tree leaves, lens color won't matter. Just see if you can find a 4 leaf clover and say a prayer to St Patrick.

    Well we had a great time. The kid exercised the Dollar Grade and I shot the Fox. Acouple admirers shot them both also. I could not buy a 25 with the fox in the wind but Warwagon aka Mr. Fuller from Green Bay took it out and pounded one out first try. :) Bill
