Is it legal?

5 posts in this topic

To carry two guns while hunting. I want to bring my muzzloader and shotgun out when I am sitting. That way if there is a deer 150 yds out I can drop em whit the muzzle and if more than one comes I can drop em both with the shotgun?

I dont know for sure but I would think if both weapon seasons are open then it would be fine.I would e-mail the dnr or call and they could tell you for sure and you wouldnt have to worry.

I'm pretty sure it is legal as long as both weapons are legal calibers.

My concern is does the DNR consider your Muzzleloader a rifle or a shotgun? If you are hunting in a shotgun only area of the state then that might prove difficult. I'm not quite sure how it would go, since ML's are allowed in the ag area during ML season, but it would be worth checking out.

In MN, it is legal as long as both guns are legal to hunt deer with in your area. You can use a muzzleloader in the shotgun zone, even with a scope during firearm season.

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
