Oregon already allows hunting with suppressors and always has (well as long as Suppressors have been legal to own in Oregon) I've talked directly to ODFW and OSP Game Enforcement on this.
So your Question should be "Since Alabama decided to follow Oregon will Washington be next?"
Uh... It's not illegal to hunt with a suppressor in Washington. So I guess Alabama decided to follow both Washington and Oregon?
I remember a few years ago an Oregonian posting up a deer he took with his suppressed 300Blk and a bunch of people getting their knickers in a twist and calling him out on his illegal activity, until they were set straight. Just a bit of research, like 30 seconds on Google could have saved some embarrassment in that thread.
Probably could have saved some embarrassment in this thread too
Coming soon to the socialist state of Kal i for nia ,,,not.
Gee, thanks for letting me use a suppressor daddy, but do I have to crawl on my hands and knees over broken glass to get one, use one, transfer one, look at one, modify one, fix one.
Hunting with a suppressor seems safer overall, provided other hunters are aware. Just remember you'd need to use 300BLK soft-point in Oregon.
"Military or full-metal jacket bullets in original or altered form prohibited"
So Alabama followed Texas, who followed Oregon and Washington....
Texas also allows you to hunt suppressed from a helicopter if you want to do that.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone...
You could use any caliber suppressed it doesn't have to be 300Blk as long as its legal to hunt with, which in Oregon (for deer) is .22 caliber or larger non full metal jacket expanding.
Here's a map of all the places you can hunt with and/or own a silencer/suppressor.
same map, just don't need to click a link to see it now
