Bill to allow wolf hunting with silencers advances in Helena

USFWS photo by J. & K. Hollingsworth(HELENA)- That proposal to allow Montana hunters to use silencers on their guns when stalking wolves clears another hurdle in Helena. 

Montana Public Media reports the House has passed second reading on House Bill 27, which would make it okay for wolf hunters to use silencers once the general big game hunting season is over. Hunters and biologists have argued the additional measure will help hunters be more successful in taking wolves, and meeting the objectives to use hunting to control wolf numbers in Montana. 

Silencers are already legal for hunting other predatory game animals including coyotes and foxes.
