Pennsylvania became the latest state to approve using semiautomatic rifles for some types of hunting, as the state’s Game Commission gave the official green light on Tuesday.

Hunters will now be able to use semiautomatic rifles for hunting small game and furbearers, but not for big game such as deer, black bear, elk or turkey.

In January, commissioners gave preliminary approval to the use of semiautomatic rifles for both small and large game, but earlier this week they amended the rule in response to concerns from hunters, Fox News reports.

Members of the commission said a clear majority of hunters in Pennsylvania voiced opposition to hunting big game with semiautomatic rifles at this time — and the board’s vote reflects that opinion.

“We listened to our hunters,” President Commissioner Brian H. Hoover said, according to Fox 43. Some opponents cited safety concerns, but board officials said the research did not show any significant problems with using semiautomatic rifles for hunting.

After the vote, commissioners said that if public support for using the rifles to hunt large game increases, they’ll consider changing the rules in the future.

Fact-finding by Pennsylvania Game Commission staff revealed no higher incidence of hunting accidents in any state where semiautomatics are permitted, and many firearms experts have said they believe semiautomatics are safer in that they allow for continuous focus on the target and often require the shooter to absorb less recoil.

The survey on hunting with semiautomatic rifles also showed greater support among younger age groups for semiautomatic rifle hunting, including the use of semiautomatic rifles to hunt big game.
