Chasing Big Game with a Suppressor

Oak Ridge, NC (October 21, 2018) – The demand for suppressors is growing rapidly as big game hunters recognize the many benefits of shooting suppressed. Often referred to as silencers, a suppressor does not actually remove all sound but it has a major impact on sound reduction.

The suppressor stifles explosive gas at the muzzle to reduce sound. The sound is especially muffled at the point closest to the shooter. This is fantastic for protecting the hunter’s hearing. Ear protection is often forgotten in the field and shooting repeatedly at the range leading up to hunting season is hard on the ear drums. Suppressors can save your hearing, making them a critical piece of equipment.

Looking beyond the immediate benefits of hearing protection, a suppressor opens up more hunting ground. You may have a clean shot on public lands but a rancher is working a quarter mile away or some hikers are gearing up back at the trailhead. Shooting suppressed removes the pressure of disturbing others within earshot when you still have a safe shooting position and it reduces potential complaints when shooting near populated areas.

In addition to saving your hearing, the suppressor saves your shoulder by reducing recoil. Knowing that your rifle will have little kick leads to more accurate shooting as you do not anticipate the recoil.

Lastly, shooting suppressed conceals your position as a hunter. You can sight in your rifle near camp without making bang and take a shot in the field without alerting every other hunter and game animal to your exact location. Big game hunting with suppressors is a win for everyone.
