I was born deaf in my left ear. I still hear fine, but when turkey or deer hunting I can not tell the direction a sound comes from. This is really aggravating and I feel really hurts my ability to move toward a bird.

I was wondering if anyone else had something similar that hinders them?

Only one thing. Sleep. I work nights and have a hard time focusing after being up 20 hours when the sun comes up. I end up feeling like a zombie and it screws me up for the rest of the weekend. I think I will forgo any morning hunting on Saturdays and just hunt the afternoons and then all day Sunday and Monday.

eastTN270, I feel you on that one. I have a very small amount of hearing in my left ear, too. It takes me a couple gobbles before I can pin-point directions. For one reason or another, I prefer to hunt the woods over fields (for turkey), and the hills and hollows here in Middle Tennessee play with my brain.

The only remedy I've found is to hunt with someone and rely on their sonic directional sense. When I can't do that (which is most of the time), I just have to do what I can to get a couple gobbles out of them.

Well, those are obvious. But, when I do get to go, my hear aggravates me the most.

Last year it was work. This year is a newborn baby boy. I was looking forward to giving Turkey season as much attention as i give Dear season.
