Re: Do you wear hearing protection while hunting?

I am pretty diligent about it, the foam "neck ring" type if running around on quads or Rangers for big game and the Surefire Sonic Defenders otherwise, even with shotguns and rimfires.

There are times you have to crack off a shot but I WILL NOT let my daughters shoot without ears no matter what (7 and 9), no reason to live with ringing for a lifetime.

It would be nice, but I am unwilling to put my name on yet another Federal list, nor give the feds that kind of per gun.

Wearing ear protection while hunting can be much more dangerous than hearing loss,is that one maybe two shots really going to amount to anything...

I developed mild tinnitus 4 years ago when I failed to wear protection for just ONE shot on a braked magnum rifle during a coyote hunt with new friends.

Re: Do you wear hearing protection while hunting?

I'm good at wearing ear protection at all times except when hunting. Have only recently purchase a couple rifles with a break on them. Shot them quite a bit with ear protection. No problems. During an elk hunt fired one time without ear protection, and have had a ringing in my ear every since. Now according to my wife I'm kind of a ding a ling anyway, but I will always wonder if it wasn't that one shot.

Big game hunting, 90% of the time no.

Predator hunting and varmint hunting, always.
