I just bought one last week. I shot it this weekend and it was really fun shooting. It would be nice to have an area to gather more info and to trade tips/secrets back and forth.

I shoot a traditional sidelock muzzleloader (percussion, not flintlock). Pretty sure everyone else here shoots in-lines, and most probably don't use loose black powder (as opposed to Pyrodex or Triple 7), round balls, patches, or maxi-balls. If there are other traditional shooters here, I might be interested in a new forum. But otherwise, meh.

I agree. I shoot a percussion sidelock and love it. We definitely need a muzzleloader forum.

Not a bad idea, I own an in line but have hunted with my dad's sidelock before. There are indeed alot of in's and out's with muzzleloading in regards to loads and bullets and much more. Might be fun to discuss......let's go.

I shoot an inline and perhaps we would need separate traditional and modern topics since I have read many a battle between the two and I really wouldn't want to see that again... If I do go out for rifle season, I'll probably use my ML south of the rifle border...

Enjoy your hunts with the legal weapon of your choice... I hope that doesn't inflame anyone wink.gif

Well I have two smoke poles one side lock in a .54 cal and the newer in line in a .50 cal. Love to shoot both of them. I spend most of my time bow hunting , but I do enjoy hunting with the boom stick as well. Opening day I went North to an area where you could shoot 5 deer, well long story short I seen one deer that someone else shot. As for the second w/e as I live in a shotgun zone ( which I hate using for deer) I took the m/l out and shot a nice 8 just a few miles from my house. I do enjoy talking with other people about black powder and think its a great idea for a m/l forum.

So what do we need to do to get a muzzleloader forum started? I would gladly love to see one going, just need to know how to make it happen. By the way has anyone had any luck as of yet with the deer hunting during muzzy season?

yes that would be great

I just got a muzzleloader last year and it would have been great to have a specific forum to ask questions. Anyways i shot my first deer with it on opener and will continue to use it. They are so fun to shoot.

Now what is the deal with a post like that? Im not even a muzzleloader and seeing posts like that just puts others in a bad mood. This forum is for everyone thats into outdoor sports. One should be welcoming new hunters of every kind. Hunting is a great activity for bringing people and families together, not only that, but the more people that are hunting the stronger our future for hunting looks. You think your the only one that has had there special spots interupted by other hunters? your not. Infact Im sure alot of people that have complained about something like that at one time or another have done it to someone else unknowingly. Thats why they call it public land.

Could not agree more with you Hunter4life. Icepirate, everyone has the right to his/her opinion but lets keep it cool. The forum would be for information for new hunters and also thoses of us to learn new things that we may not know, you know share info, who knows maybe you could learn a thing or two. I am all for it!!

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
