ABSOLUTELY SUPPRESS IT. We shoot and hunt EVERYTHING suppressed and I'll never go back.

Not even in the realm of true. There is a pretty good reason AAC has gone through 3 different generations (minimum) of "qd" mounts...and it's not to win style points. It's because they were wearing out.
There are a lot of cans that WON'T come loose, but that shouldn't be even in the top 10 reasons to choose a can. The likely hood of a can coming lose in a hunting scenario is pretty slim. Even predator hunting, where you can take a lot of shots during the day, it doesn't take more than a second to double check before or after you leave a stand. It's no different than making sure you ready to shoot by checking the bolt, checking the safety, checking the mag yada yada yada.
If you've got or get a can, you'll be OCD about making sure it's tight for a while, and then you'll realize, you need to check MUCH less often.
With a good can, it's a non-issue.
