In several European countries, suppressors are required for hunting with a high powered rifle.
I think this is a myth. I am not aware of any country that requires a silencer to hunt. Got any proof?

The proper term is suppressor, the device does not completely silence the report of any firearm larger than a pellet gun. Using the word silencer simply feeds the ignorance and hysteria of the uneducated anti gun crowd.
The proper term is silencer, it is a noun and a legal term, not a verb. The word muffler is equally correct legally. I always thought those people who got upset about the word silencer were ignorant and hysterical. I have 15 ATF form 1's with the word silencer in block 4b. Not going to risk a delay of approval by using the word suppressor.
