CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming House of Representatives is set to hear a bill that would allow hunters to use silencers.

Sen. Ogden Driskell of Devils Tower introduced the bill in the Senate after an identical bill died earlier this session in a House committee.

Wyoming is one of the few western states that bar hunters from using silencers. Proponents say using silencers offers can help save hunters' hearing. But some opponents say they have concerns that using silencers is unsporting.

The silencer bill is first on the list for discussion on Monday in the House, but the list is always subject to change.
