Suppressors Legalized For Hunting Game Animals

by | Apr 02, 2012

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission voted unanimously March 29 to legalize suppressor use while hunting game animals. The benefits associated with suppressor use include increased accuracy due to reduced recoil and muzzle blast, protection from hearing damage and reduced noise pollution. 

Prior to the adoption of this rule, lawfully-possessed suppressors were only permitted for taking nuisance species. Legislatures in Oklahoma and Georgia are currently considering similar measures and Arizona has recently passed one which would enhance hunting opportunities because of the many benefits that suppressors provide.—courtesy National Rifle Association
