Same answer.....use the contact us link at the bottom of the page and make your suggestion. Thats the best way to get your suggestion in front of the powers that be.

The muzzleloader info is typically covered under Deer/hunting/ and shooting sports. The problem with giving it its own forum is that there are rarely any ML comments or questions outside of Sept. through Dec. It gets its time in during the hunting season, but much else.

Since the start of the all-season license and being allowed to both muzzleloader and rifle hunt, the number of Minnesota muzzleloader hunters is rising dramatically. Each year there are a lot of first-time muzzleloader hunters who have many questions. I think a muzzleoader forum would be very appropriate given the recent increase of folks entering this sport. I think the forum would be active year round.

I used the contact us link to ask for the motorcycle forum and we had one 2 days later, so it pays to ask for what you want.

icefishing21,

If you are going to start muzzleloading, I would buy a gun this spring so you have plenty of time to sight in and get the right powder/bullet set up. Its a bit of work but fun if you have enough time. Better to have several months to do this then just a few weeks.

I sent a request into admin for a forum. Hope others are doing the same.

I'd like to see this forum and have said so in the past because I'd really like to rant about the no scope rule! mad.gif

The no scope rule is a great rule! I would be VERY against it changing. If you need a scope on it to hit anything, then use it during the rifle season.

I think there is plenty of room in this shooting forum for our smokepole issues.

HuntFishDude, we've had that discussion here many times alreadyin past years. If you search old threads you can probably find it...

The search tool is very tedious...very..you can never find an exact subject, if there was a search engine like what metacrawler has i.e exact phrase, that would help.

i believe this would be a nice forum to have, and like powerstroke stated, click on the contact link and email your thoughts about why we should have one. i have been shooting mine for years. Its great when you can go out and deer hunt with them, and know that you only have one shot.

Again, send it to the contact link, and they will get back to you shorty.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      Tried to buy it last Friday and they were not available. System was down/messed up
