(don;t really think that will happen) Technology is great.
Wow, good for both of you. Those cochlear implants really help open a person's world back up. I know both of you have to be thrilled for her to regain one of her senses. You never realize how much you rely on something until it is taken from you.
My hearing is not what it should be. I had a fool shoot a shotgun right beside my ear when we were dove hunting in 1976 when I was 15 years old. It ruptured my right ear drum and strained the left. I think the concussion damaged more than the noise did. I couldn't hear for 3 days afterward, but some of it came back over time. Now I hear crickets all the time. My high frequency range is shot, but have an unusually strong ability to pick up low frequency for some reason. I can hear turkeys spitting & drumming farther away than all my hunting buddies do.
I really hope you get the chance to hunt together and I hope your wife gets to enjoy all the sounds of nature during your turkey hunts. Make sure you post pictures here of your successful hunts.
My camo came from Mack's P.W if you're looking for that pattern. It was a better price than from the manufacturer's site. Good luck & have fun this Spring.
