Hunting

Hearing protection for hunters

Hunting is rising in popularity in Australia. Whether you’re in it for conservation efforts, pest management, competitively or just as a hobby, where there are guns, there must be hearing protection.

Hunters who use guns are likely to develop hearing impairments from the sheer decibel of the gunshot. Keeping in mind that one ear can be affected more than the other depending on which is closest to the weapon. It is crucial to wear hearing protection each time you head out on a hunt to protect you from sudden impulse noise such as gunfire.
