Smart hunters make time to practice shooting before the season begins. The smartest hunters use proper safety gear. Learn more on the TPW PBS TV series this month. Series producer, Don Cash.

54 –We offer some advice on how to protect your eyes and how to protect your ears when you’re shooting.

Good hearing and eye protection are a must when protecting the most vital of senses for our children: their sight and their hearing.

What you’ll see in this video is the proper way to keep your ears safe with either ear plugs or headset.

Whether you choose a flange type ear plug, or muff, or some variation of these: don’t go shooting without proper hearing protection.

And, cover your eyes with glasses…

Eye protection is just as important as hearing protection in the shooting sports. Whether it’s common safety glasses, your prescription glasses, or commercially available shooting glasses, any of these will provide adequate, unobstructed sight protection during your shooting activities.

You can watch this the week of July 7th on the Texas parks and Wildlife PBS Television show. If you happen to miss it, we’ve got a YouTube channel, a lot of hunter education and hunter related videos there.

Thanks, Don.
