    Mine are the E.A.R. brand. I got them through one of my shooting coaches.

    There is a couple that travels around with the clays shooting circuit to all the big tournaments that have a really good reputation for setting people up. The woman's nickname is "Grandma" or "Mom" or something similar. Gander would know who they are.

    I was in highschool when I shot 8 times one evening from a climber. It was 6 days before the ringing stopped. After that I had a plug for my left ear and I got rid of the break on my boss. Shotguns are not as loud, but I do not want to wake up one day and it be too late

    Sportin taught me how to use 2 cig butts as earplugs. Only thing you gotta watch out for is getting tobaccer shake down in your brain. I wonít dove hunt without them and wonít let my boy shoot til he burns 2.

    I use electronic muffs, like others have commented, I'm trying to preserve what I have.

    I know a guy whose sister's cousin got hooked on nicotine that way. Now he uses the little dip pouches instead of butts. He was thinking about going to a Juul but they were too expensive.

    I use some Safariland impulse plugs I picked up from Walmart for maybe 15 or 20 bucks, and have been really happy with them. They allow me to hear the birds and fellow hunters just fine. Have not been able to afford to get into electronics, and the foam or silicone plugs make it so I can't hear birds and end up missing opportunities. Foam plugs I always ended up popping them out with the intention of putting back in when shooting time came, but of course they would sit in my pocket through shooting in reality. If you don't wear anything or don't encourage youth to protect their hearing - please reconsider. At this point I am trying to hang on to what hearing I have left, but what I normally hear is somewhere between a cicada/cricket jamboree somewhere high over my left shoulder or the intense sensation that an A-sharp tuning fork is drilling into my skull.
