I hear of many people that cannot hear because of all the shooting they did

when they were younger. I was wondering, how should you hunt while using

ear protection at the same time. I am mainly talking about deer and

rabbit, where most of the guns you use are loud. I know there are some

expensive ear pieces that you can use that only silence loud sounds. I

cannot afford anything all so expensive at the moment, and help would be

greatly appreciated thanks.

Try optics planet.com take a look at Surefire EP3 sonic defender. I have not tried these yet but, I will be purchasing them soon. Also, take a look at the same ones with passive hearing

If you have to shoot more than 1 shot to get the deer, practice more. One shot isn't gonna hurt your hearing that bad.

I can understand for deer, but what about rabbit/quail/squirrel (saying I use

a shotgun for squirrel). With the above animals, you usually aren't just taking

one shot.

In that case, i think they make ear plugs that are connected to bands like headphones. You can try and find some of those, or make a mod yourself with foam inserts and an old headset..

The only rifle I've got that I really don't like to shoot without ear plugs in my Mosin Negant. That thing is really loud. I try to wear plugs If I'm going to shoot anyway, exept hunting.

Simple ear plugs work wonders....

I am partially deaf in my right ear because of my being a little too close to 740 pounds of C4 20 years ago and also because I let an RN do a little exploratory surgery on my ear and she didnt do it right...

Take care of your ears. You only have two of them....
