I found out recently that my left ear has some permanent damage from shooting firearms. My right ear is fine but that's because its covered up when I shoot. I always wear muffs at the range but I don't wear anything when I hunt because I need to hear a deer walking, a turkey gobbling, or a pheasant flushing. The ear specialist said that the damage is at high frequency sounds and my hearing test confirmed this. Apparently there are plugs you can wear while you're hunting that allow you to hear normal sounds but muffle the loud damaging noise the gun makes when it goes off. If I don't do something about this its only going to slowly just get worse. Thoughts?
