Re: Do you wear hearing protection while hunting?

jay blaze,

44 Mags have a habit making a lot of noise.

I learned that lesson the hard way too. Now I don't think of shooting a firearm
with our HEARING PROTECTION. When I go to the range my MUFFS are the first
thing loaded and are on the front seat within easy reach.

Only when sighting in the rifle, not hunting.

bearrug,

Welcome, I shared that statement for a while. I was hunting where I very
seldom heard a shot all day. Then I got interested in long range shooting.
and reloading. To shoot that one long distance shot, I spend a lot of time
on the rifle range. Wearing hearing protection has become a habit.

I can help but laugh when people say "I never wear protection." Please specify what kind of protection. Thank you!

Banjo318,

That's quite an arsenal you have.

I suspect your quite aware of the various types of hearing protection
devices that are currently available in the market place.
Whether or not you choose to use any them is your choice.
