    No
    Also a good thing - as I can use/leave my glasses on which I need now to see any detail
    Locate with Thermal
    Do the mea mea or meh meh - and get ready for action
    Got Peltor earmuffs this year to try out - think they be good too, you hear ever twig crack at 50m - will see before passing judgement on them
    You sure learn about what unessasary noices you making yourself with the muffs
    Like sling swivels - get rid of
    Boots need oil
    etc

    Unfortunately not all of us have white tail bouncing around in our back yard at 40m like you do on the lil rock at the bottom of NZ

    I find your own senses are better than using technology, you may hear the smallest of noise with electronic stuff but it takes away the sense of smell and feel that something is near

    I hear ya
    As I said - I will try them out
    They wont be over my nose though

    But I will ask you this
    how many times have we given a Roar/Roars - been sitting or knelling down - then gone to move and - CRASHHHH
    The bugger has snuck in (as the always do) and even given the fact I have actually good hearing still - havn't heard him even at 15m
    These muffs will - I am certain on that

    Blow flies are a bastard though - like b52 going past

    I will also be spending some time bush hunting with muffs on this year, with the 30-30 trapper. Mine are MSA sordins and I can hear deer chewing grass 50 odd metres away
