Hunting Big Game in North America While Protecting Your Hearing

Hunting is not a “one size fits all” description of what many of us do when we go out with our weapon of choice and try and take down a certain breed of animal. There are a lot of different types of hunting. Big game, small game, predators, birds, you name it, and within each of these categories are lots of subcategories. Different animals that are hunted with different weapons, from bows, to rifles, to handguns, to shotguns. With all of these categories and subcategories comes a lot of different sets of needs, even when it comes to making the most of a hunters hearing. Depending on what type of hunting you are doing you might need amplification or hearing protection, or a combination of the two. In this article we will look at the category of hunting big game, and what you can do to make the most of your ears.

The category of big game hunting in North America is usually containing animals such as mule deer, white-tailed deer, moose, elk, caribou, wild boars, bighorn sheep, and javelinas. Hunting animals such as Bison and buffalo would also be considered big game, but because they were hunted almost to extinction so it became illegal to hunt them in a majority of North America.

When preparing to hunt for big game, your preparation will be very different hunting for small game. The weapon you use will typically need to be of a higher caliber, in most circumstances you will be spending most of your hunting time alone, and your approach to the hunt will be unique to the animal you are hunting. When using a high caliber weapon, this also means that the decibels will be at dangerous levels. Good hunters know how to protect themselves without hindering their hunting ability. Thankfully, companies like WildEar have developed the right combination of hearing protection and hearing amplification. The Master Series hearing protection and enhancement combines the safety of earplugs or earmuffs with a amplification of a hearing aid allowing you to protect your ears while still hearing the smallest rustle of leaves. These pieces of advanced hearing technology are custom fit to your ear and include four different programs to create the most ideal hearing circumstances for you while on your hunt.

But what if you are a person who enjoys hunting big game with a bow? You most likely won’t need protection from harmful noise, but you still want to do everything you can in order to take down your big game. Well then you would have to check out the Bowhunter Series. This series of WildEar products allows you to amplify your hearing with advanced digital hearing enhancement technology. Like the Master Series, each pair is custom fit to your ear to make sure for a perfect fit. With two hearing programs you can choose the best fit for your hunt.
