Muzzloading question

6 posts in this topic

Is it legal in MN to have a muzzleloader with a scope?

Some say yes, some say no. Others say a 2x scope is legal but it is a waste of time because it doesn't help much

Anyone know the skinny?

The muzzleloader with scope is legal accross the state for the firearm seasons but it must be removed for the muzzleloader season. Open sights (including fiber optic) or peep sights only are legal during the muzzleloader season. The exception to this is cases of vision impairment in which case a permit is needed and only certain scopes acceptable. This is all descibed in the DNR hunting regulations.

I believe it is only legal to use a scope on a muzzleloader during firearm season. When the muzzleloader season starts I don't think any are legal.

Thanks.

I think they should make a 2x power scope legal. I think we would get cleaner shots as fewer injured deer that will die later.

My $1.25.

Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
