This bill will allow the use of suppressors when hunting. It is out of committee and is going to a floor vote.
Please contact your state rep and ask them to support this bill.

Great News! This has made it out of the house unamended (there was an attempt to exclude big game hunting). Please now contact your senators and the senate judiciary committee to support it!

The bill passed the house but is now tabled in the Senate Judiciary committee. It is going to die if it stays there. PLEASE contact your Senator and all members of this committee!

Nevermind.. its dead. It went down 3 to 9
Does anybody on here actually care about these things? Should we bother with activism for Montana on this board?

I have no idea why anyone would not want to allow suppressors, less hunting pressure=more, higher quality, animals.
Same thing for bow hunting here in MT, why the heck can't you have electronics on your bow or arrow? It would allow for more ethical shots, cleaner kills and with the GPS tracking attachments, we saw at the NRA national meetings, way less unfound animals.

We'll look for a new thread if this legislation comes up next session.
