Does anyone use hearing devices such as the Walker Game ears? I shot way to many guns in my youth without ample hearing protection and I’m paying the consequences now unfortunately. I’m looking for opinions on something to help while in the woods, anyone have any real world experience on these types of devices?

I bought a Walkers Game Ear back in the old days when Cabela's bargain bin was truly a bargain bin. Probably cost me $30 or so. That thing has been tremendous. I suffer from a 50% hearing loss and tinnitus back from my military days. Down side is they are not real directional. Upside you will hear things you haven't heard in years. Turkeys gobbling in the distance. That shuffling sound that deer make when they are walking through fallen leaves. They are tremendous. I also have a pair of Howard Leight sound enhancing ear muffs but I don't use them as much because they are bulky if you are packing and hot if it's a warm day. I always have the Walkers in my bino pack. I'm not using them a lot right now because my lease is right next to the Interstate and I'm not hunting Freightliners. 😊

I appreciate your insight, I wasn’t for sure if they actually helped very much.

I truly thank you for your service as well salute

Your welcome, sir. Good luck in your search. You will hear things you’ve forgotten in the field. Just be sure whatever you buy they are designed for hunting / shooting and have the loud noise shutoff.
