Re: Suppress or not to Suppress

Actually lots of states allow total hunting with suppresserd weapons. Texas just passed and will be legal first week in sept. but we've always been allowed to hunt exotics suppressed. I know Oklahoma is legal and several others. Hell I just heard Oklahoma just passed the right to carry a side arm in the open in public

Luckily a lot more than people realize!

Here's an unverified list where you can hunt big game silenced: AK, AR, AZ, CO, ID, KS, KY, MD, MO, MS, ND, NE, NM, NV, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WI, WV.

Obviously read your own state regulations before you go in the field.

If you come to the western states I would make sure they allow it.

Open carrying of a handgun is allowed more then concealed carry.

I have a hard time believing some of the states you listed allow suppressed big game hunting. I would make for damn sure before you tried it. IF you said those states allow owning supressors I would believe that but I have a very hard time believing they all allow big game hunting with suppressed rifles.

Check with your state and do not take anyones word for it, they will not be the ones getting arrested and fined over it, you will be!!

Fifty, I'm sure GemTech would love to hear about mistakes in their list. Nobody wants to spread disinformation.

Re: Suppress or not to Suppress

They are actually claiming these states allow big game hunting or suppressor ownership?

Post a link.

Re: Suppress or not to Suppress

I did. Read the PDF. The ownership list is much longer.
