16 posts in this topic

So i just noticed a new motorcycling and a rod builders fourm??? Where is the muzzloader forum.. I think there would be a little more interest in the the muzzleloader forum, and people have asked for it!

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.

I would also like to see this forum. I have just started and would like to hear some tips form the experienced hunters.

i also think that would be a great idea. i want to buy a muzzle loader next fall and try muzzle loading for the first time. a new forum on muzzle loaders would be great help.

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

Well, we didn't get a separate forum but the title changed to include ML \:\/

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.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
