If you’re a hunter at heart, you know that it's not easy to go out and bag a deer. It takes work - from setting up a treestand or blind to sitting hours silent and still in the early morning, waiting on that trophy buck. One wrong move and you could lose a day’s worth of patient hard work.
One of the most important things to know when deer hunting is that you have to blend in. Deer are keenly aware of their surroundings, using all senses to stay alert at all times. A hunter has to avoid strong smells, loud noises, and he must dress for success in head-to-toe camouflage.
Just one wrong move and you’re back to the house with no payoff.
One of the easy-to-miss precautions that many hunters forget to take care of is the clunky wedding ring. Some hobbies make wearing a metal ring almost impossible, and deer hunting is no exception! Every hunter knows that it is essential to put safety first and that extends to the smallest detail as a wedding ring.

Why hunters shouldn’t wear a wedding ring:
- It’s flashy. If light catches on your metal ring, that deer will be outta sight in a heartbeat.
- It’s loud. You sneak quietly out to your deer stand and start to ascend when… CLANG! That metal rings through the woods like a shot. Say bye-bye to your deer for today!
- It’s freakin' dangerous. Hunters work with a lot of equipment, from guns and bows to deer stands. One wrong move and that ring could snag something, degloving your ringer.
- It could get lost. If you lose your ring while hunting on a lot of land you can pretty much say goodbye to it forever.
What you can do:
- Leave your ring at home. No risk there!
- Wear camouflage gloves to cover the ring’s shine and mute the sound of metal against metal.
- Choose to wear a silicone ring.
Why should hunters wear a Groove Ring?
The Groove Ring is uniquely designed with breathable inner grooves that allow air in and moisture out. This breathable technology keeps the sweat away and skin breathing, ideal for long hours in a treestand.
It’s easy to clean
We know that hunting can get a little messy. As Katie Van Slyke-Mabry shared with us earlier this year, hunters love that Groove Rings are easy to clean and never lose their color, no matter what you put them through!
You’ll forget you’re wearing it
One of the phrases we hear all the time is “I don’t even notice I’m wearing it.” The medical-grade silicone band forms to the finger, making it the most comfortable ring you can find.
It makes your spouse happy.
Especially for our guys out there… you know one wrong move could jeopardize your entire hunting future! Happy wife = happy life, and your wedding ring makes your bride feel “happy, happy, happy.”
It keeps your finger safe!
Last but far from least, Groove Rings are designed to break away from the finger when snagged, protecting the hand from injury. Don’t take a risk with your fingers. When you choose a Groove Ring, you choose safety.
“Since I was a little kid, I've had this profound connection and love for the deep, dark, unmolested woods. I've always had a longing to be in the deep woods or in the water. I want to be on lakes, streams, and rivers and surrounded by everything that comes with it - the ducks, birds, fish, and other wildlife. I guess it's in my DNA, and I just love being out there. Even to this day, it's where I want to be.”
― Phil Robertson, Happy, Happy, Happy: My Life and Legacy as the Duck Commander
