Suppressors Now Legal for Hunting in Bavaria (Germany)

    Marienberg Fortress, Bavaria, Germany

    In an interesting turn of events across the Atlantic, our friends in the German Free State of Bavaria are now allowed to hunt with a suppressor. All Shooters reports (translated from German using Google Translate)…

    The authority responsible for hunting rights in Bayern authority – the Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry (StMELF) – In early August 2015 informed that should be approved immediately requests from hunters for the use of silencers. This innovation has been a long time longed by many hunters. What does this mean? You as a hunter can now submit an application, which is also approved as a rule from. However, some information you need to yet.

    What this means, I am told by my friend Gabor Vass (Chief Editor of Kaliber Magazine) is that all local hunters from now can apply for a suppressor permit for their rifles. The permit is granted based on wording in the German Constitution.
