Hunting Out of State with a suppressor

Post by 2ALife » Mon Apr 08, 2019 9:47 pm

Hello all, new here.

Is there a list out there that shows where you can hunt with a suppressor if you are out of state? Assuming, of course, permits and licenses (if needed) are complete.

Scenario: I live in TN and have a Trust for my suppressor, I am going to Missouri for a Boar Hunt, guided, can I legally bring my suppressor and hunt with it? I have emailed the game authority in MO. but have not received a reply yet. There was mention that you need to have a C&R License from the ATF to have a suppressor in MO. but those mentions were dated back in 2012, haven't found anything up to date on that so far.

Thanks for your help.

The issue might be a state one. Perhaps, you may need to look at MO law.
From these 2 site (Link1 Link2) it appears MO is suppressor hunting friendly.
Here's one from actual hunters, in state.

Generally speaking, so long as it's legal to own a suppressor in said state, it's legal to bring it there, w/o permission from the ATF.
As far as C&R, that just sounds weird, but, hey, it's the ATF :roll:

No federal laws stand in your way.

Thanks, I know Federal Law allows me to move a suppressor across state lines UNLIKE an SBR, but it is the local laws that I am worried about. The C&R was a local requirement, not federal of course.

Either way, thanks all for your input

Iowa is kind of a weird holdout.

Iowa is kind of a weird holdout.
Actually, Iowa is not a holdout; they legalized suppressors and for hunting all in one swoop in March 2016. Mbogo inadvertently used an old graphic above from before Iowa passed it in 2016. Here is the current graphic from the American Suppressor Association website:

Yes, I had an outdated image. Iowa is suppressor-friendly.
