I don’t know about you, but loud noises make me flinch. It doesn’t matter if I know exactly when the loud noise is going to happen or not, I flinch regardless. And when I flinch I lose precision of what I am doing. This is clearly important when hunting because a small anticipatory flinch can change the destination of the round you discharge by inches, or even feet, which can mean that you hit your mark, simply injuring the animal, or you might even miss completely. But having hearing protection will decrease the noise level of what your ears hear, which typically takes care of things like my involuntary flinching.
The calm sense goes hand in hand with the lack of an anticipatory flinch. When you know what you are listening for you can calm your nerves and relax. You are also able to focus.
If you are on the WildEar site, you are more than likely aware of the different series WildEar products that we have. And if you are hunting with a rifle the Master Series is the WildEar product that is for you. What these high tech devices do is filter out the loud noise while amplifying the noises that are hard to hear.
Which segues right into our fourth and final way that the right hearing protection will help you hunt. With a hearing device that quiets the loud while at the same time amplifying the noises that you wouldn’t be able to normally hear, you will be able to differentiate between noises much easier. Just imagine not having to strain to hear subtle noise, but instead you can hear noises clearly.
