early muzzleloader and scopes?

3 posts in this topic

Would you guys support having an early muzzleloader season, and allow scopes on muzzleloaders? I think it is time for Minnesota to come into the 21st century and have maybe just an early antlerless ml season. just a thought I guess, what do you guys think? confused.gif

Absolutely not and maybe for personal reason's. I like the undisturbed pre-rut bowhunting time too much to support something that may entice more people into the woods to push things around.

Second of all, and this has been picked over to death already, but I don't support the use of scopes on muzzleloaders. The fact of the matter is that if you don't feel comfortable taking a shot at an animal you probably shouldn't. I can fling an arrow 100yds but wouldn't think of taking a shot at an animal at that distance.

I'd much rather prefer a late doe season. After normal firearms seasons. Maybe DNR would be able to allow/limit extra tags in areas by how hunters did during the regular firearms season.

Scopes on ML would improve my chances at a quick kill. No problem with allowing scopes on MLs here. It is fun without one, though.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
