WY legislature moves to legalize hunting with silencers

Post date: Feb 18, 2013 7:30:33 AM

On Tuesday, the Wyoming House of Representatives voted to join a majority of states that allow the use of silencers while hunting. This measure was already approved by the Senate and is headed to Gov. Mead's desk for his signature. Wyoming is already a popular hunting destination. If this bill is signed into law, hunters who want to protect their hearing and maintain their situational awareness without resorting to cumbersome, uncomfortable electronic earmuffs will be able to take all manner of game in Wyoming using a silencer. The successful progress of this legislative initiative follows efforts by the American Silencer Association in the state.
