Heat-Packing Bowhunters: Wyoming bill would allow archers to carry guns

In an apparent effort to protect bowhunters from grizzly bears, Senate File 79, a Wyoming state bill sponsored by Sen. Cale Case (R-Lander), would allow archers to carry automatic weapons and guns equipped with silencers, to be used only in self-defense. At least one obvious objection, however, is that this would throw the door wide open to poachers.
Do you think this bill should be passed?
