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!!

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
