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 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.

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
