We all know the gun range mantra of “eyes and ears” and, when we’re at the shooting range, many of us wear this protection without fail. However, it is not uncommon for a hunter to head to the woods without hearing protection in place.
I’ll raise my hand and say I am one of them. Hunters spend hours sitting in a blind or walking in the upland fields not knowing when or if a shot will ever be fired. Muffling noise for those limited times when you shoot means every other minute when you’re NOT firing sounds like you are under water.
