Sen. Holdman has introduced SB 199 which repeals the statute prohibiting hunting with a silencer.
Instead, under this legislation, if you use a silencer to illegally take a deer or wild turkey, the penalty is enhanced and a penalty is created for using a silencer while hunting on private land without permission.
Is this a problem? Are there a lot of hunters out there who are frustrated in their pursuits by the prohibition on silencers? Or is this just an example of the tactical subculture wanting to play with their accessories?
Seems like the fact that bullets are being fired in the area is exactly the kind of information we’d like people to have.
