On Monday, March 18 at 10 a.m., the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee will hear House Bill 1563 that would allow hunters in Indiana to use lawfully-possessed suppressors (also referred to as silencers) on firearms while hunting. HB 1563, sponsored by state Representative Sean Eberhart (R-57) and state senators Carlin Yoder (R-12) and Richard Young (D-47), recently passed in the Indiana House by an overwhelming 96-2 vote.

It’s time that hunters in Indiana are able to enjoy the same opportunities available to sportsmen in more than half of the country. For more information on hunting with suppressors, click here.
