If you can't see the benefits of using a suppressor to hunt with, then you probably haven't been shooting suppressed very long. The right suppressor, makes the "cons" almost insignificant, and the "pros" very much worth it.
We run EVERYTHING 100% suppressed, especially when we're filming and I currently own more suppressors than rifles...and I've got more on the way.(including one designed specifically for us)
I'd rather buy the suppressor first, and have it in hand, ready to mount and get a gun for it later.
You can get a gun any day of the week. A suppressor takes time.
While I'm not planning to hunt in WYO with it this year, it'll be my 6th consecutive season hunting big game and predators in SD suppressed, and I look forward to every second.
Our "Predator Hunting: Suppressed" video series has been a huge success and this fall we'll finally be releasing some other hunts for our next adventure, "Suppressing Big Game"
I'd like to link to the playlist, but when I do, only the 1st video plays.
This link would take you to the actual playlist.
