That's because hunting with silencers is about to be legal.
The state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Advisory Board voted unanimously last week to allow hunting with silencers in the state.

The new rules will go into effect before the Fall hunting seasons.
According to the National Rifle Association, more than 30 states already allow hunting with suppressors.
