Re: Hearing protection -what do you use?
I have been using the electronic muffs from Dillon for several years now. Mostly they get used at the range or when I'm shooting USPSA/IPSC style matches and work well even when I'm shooting my 300WM w/ a brake.
I have started to use them for duck hunting as well. They are a little bulky if you are wearing a hooded jacket, but otherwise very comfortable, even when it is hot out.
The only thing that I have had to do to them is replace the ear pads - they are made to be replaced, so no big deal there.
I keep nature balanced - I hunt everything!
