    I am new to the forum but not new to shooting. At 46 my hearing is at best...bad. I blame it exclusively on way to much bird hunting with no thoughts to what might happen when I get older. I do not let my kids pull the trigger without proper ear protection on any gun.

    I see that this post went from (while hunting) i think and not always a user of hearing protection as a younger non beleiver that my ears would never suffer i went on ,last night there was that "f" ringing in my ears again. I can see that the one or two stores that sell ammo ,i will try to post a warning that shooting does lead to hearing lose and maybe some will get the message maybe some of the products sold would come with some foam protection i bought myself soundgear for my xmas present and i couldn't be happy'er ,well i could but not on this site,chainsaw 6 hrs per day/equit. Nosie all day,the wife, what a great product

    what can i say

    problem is forms don't get to the younger ones too get them started

    Maryland Hunter and Grizzly Valley,

    Us old guys usually wake up sooner or later to the fact, that no one hears
    that loud whistle in your ears. The birds have all gone south and the crickets
    don't chirp any more. Oh yes the bullfrogs aren't as loud as they once were.

    There are a lot of hearing aids on the market, running from fifteen to over
    five thousand dollars. The batteries in most of them won't last a full day in
    in the field. Then there is The loud muzzle blast you need hearing suppressors
    for. In the field I wore hearing aids and carried ear plugs. You can never remember
    pocket you put them in, unless of course you put them on a string and put it
    around your neck, of course that's along with a couple of cow calls and a buck
    grunt call.

    The new Electronic muffs seem to be catching on. They suppress the blast of the
    firearm, while amplifying sounds you really need to hear. Like range commands
    Bugling Bulls, chirping crickets and your wife.

    My birthday is the end of this month, I have made a few suggestions for a birthday
    present. Just maybe I will get a set of the new electronic muffs.

    Well, unlike the politicians of today and those who must be politically correct, I
    do say what I mean and mean what I say,

    When I am bow hunting I don't need ear plugs. Being an old bow hunter, I am far
    more concerned with being able to hear the critters and what ever noise I make.

    I do go on an occasional rifle and shot gun hunt and spend some time at the
    rifle range. In that venue I need to hear and still have sound suppression at the
    same time.

    Practice, Practice, Practice
