After our elk hunt of 2012 both my Dad and my hunting partner stated that the best piece of equipment they owned was their electronic hearing protection
. So, in January at the SHOT Show I bought custom digital hearing protection from EAR Inc. I now wear it whether bird or big game hunting and very much appreciate it.
I had worn eletronic muffs with some bird hunting before, and tried to use foam earplugs with occasional big game hunts. The new protection eliminates those and works far better.
