Who's planning on using a suppressor in WYO?

2013 is the first year since 1921 that we will be able to use a suppressor equipped firearm to hunt all game and non-game animals in WYO.

Anybody considering using one for game when hunting here?

I'm more of a predator caller. I'll be using one when calling after July 1 when the new law takes effect.

Not me, just can't see the benefits of using one.

Re: Who's planning on using a suppressor in WYO?

I am planning on using one during an antelope hunt in 2014. I am picking it up (thunderbeast 30ba) this Monday. Will have it mounted by a smith in the next week or two. I am really looking forward to using it. I am hoping with the suppressor plus good ear protection I can really reduce the beating my ears have taken. I have hearing loss plus tinnitus, and at 65 years of age I am hoping the suppressor will help me to extend my shooting/hunting career.

Re: Who's planning on using a suppressor in WYO?

I would strongly reccomend getting a supressor. Im in New Zealand and have 4 rifles supressed and they are soo nice to shoot. recoil is GONE and noise isnt an issue. we have a 7mm rem mag and you can shoot it all day long with out noise or recoil issues.
if you are going to get one fitted I would reccomend an over barrel type and getting the barrel shortend abit. other wise the weight is all off balance and they become annoying.
just get one fitted and you wont look back. once you have used one you wont want to use a rifle without one.
Really good for varminting and long range as you can talk to your spotter and your spotter doesnt get a face full of dust and muzzel blast like you get from a muzzel brake.

Kinda late to use one this year but maybe I'll do the work necessary to use one next year?

I'm in the same boat Mach, ran out of time this year. I procrastinated too much & couldn't make up my mind.

The TBAC 30ba is looking very likely for 2014.
