I thought there was electronic hearing equipment, that enhanced sound, for hunting, but instantly turned sound off, or lowered it to within safe levels, when gun was fired. I believe they've been around for years now.When hunting in the field a muzzle brake is a pain and the extreme noise can damage your hearing. Has anybody ever tried wrapping the end of the gun with duct tape in order to block the holes on the muzzle brake? Is this an ok way to temporarily block the muzzle brake?
I do that with every magnum caliber rifle I shoot on the bench. My walker game ears do great in the field. My 300rum and 338 lapua would be the only exceptions but if I’m hunting with them the target animals are far enough off that I always have time to put my plugs in and earmuffs on before I have to make the shot.At the range I always have used wax ear plugs and ear muffs over that, double protedtion.
Electronic muffs are what I have used hunting for years. Plus they keep my ears warm in colder weather. If you don't like the muffs, there are in the ear models that do the same thing other than keep your ears warm. Competition shooters use them all the time with guns with horribly loud muzzle brakes.The problem with ear plugs is that you cannot hear the game rustling the brush.
