We have pretty good common sense gun laws here in Vt , but this law really won't effect overall laws here that much at all.
It just helps bow hunters be a bit more safe while bow hunting,,,ever been followed by yotties when your dragging out a deer,,,,Well I have and it's no fun,, a noise maker would be good to dissuade them some from getting to close. Around here there pretty damn bold and they make me nervous when I'm out there. We have a local yottie hunting club that keeps them at bay pretty well, but there still an issue sometimes.
That's just about all this law does. But we've got good laws here already, to bad they don't enforce most of them! That's the only area lacking as far as Vt. laws go. Enforcement.
