    Re: hunting with ear plugs

    A pair of the electronic in-ear plugs is on my (eventual) shopping list. I'd wear those near constantly.

    A very just reason for silencers. In parts of Europe and I believe Alaska and some states they are allowed.

    Re: hunting with ear plugs

    My last two Mulies I shot, I heard them before I actually saw them.

    I don't use earplugs when hunting, not yet anyways. I think I lost some hearing in the 80s and 90s with all those rock concerts I've been too.

    Re: hunting with ear plugs

    I wear plugs and muffs for all shooting except the several shots a year at big game I may be lucky enough to get. I absolutely understand that I am potentially degrading my hearing with these shots. The three shots I took to drop my moose this year left my ears ringing for sure.

    I smoke drum tobacco only when i am hunting. Also a poor health choice, but once in a while a guy has to “let er rip”

    Re: hunting with ear plugs

    For deer, when I am (ideally) only firing one, maybe two shots, I don't bother. Maybe that's because I am young and stupid, but I also like to hear my surroundings and my in-ear electronics don't have the ability to cancel out the noise of wind for those all day hikes.

    I do however, wear them 100% when waterfowl hunting. Blasting 3 3.5" high brass loads at a time without protection is about as good an idea as going without protection in a Vietnamese brothel.

    I'd recommend shelling out for the really fancy ones with the wind cancelation feature. Super annoying in mine and half the reason I don't wear them deer hunting.

    I never did, but now, if I was duck hunting I would wear them. Deer, moose, etc....no. I do like those one's that appear to be on a horse shoe thing and sit nice on your neck. But in reality, when you bust that buck, the last thing I'll be thinking about is ear plugs.

    No offence but what the #@*!. Hopefully you are only taking or should only take one shot. If you are at the range then of course you should wear GOOD ear protection. Hiking in the bush i would not be wearing ear protection or have to worry about missing an opportunity because i have to get my ear plugs in. If you are that worried then buy a bow but then that would probably be to loud according to the " EPA". Ear Protection Act that someone will start after reading this.

    Hunting no. Any type of target shooting yes, even a .22. I use the custom moulded hearing protection there relatively cheap and very comfortable

    Plugs around my neck. Pop them in when there's action. Easy and painless.

    I have used the regular plugs as well as the horseshoe type. Horseshoe type is super fast, and I get to hear the animals coming way before my deaf hunting partners ��
