What Muzzleloader?

7 posts in this topic

I am a long time deer rifle hunter that wants to try my hand at muzzleloading. I have purchased the all season license and have a place to hunt in the metro area during the muzzleloader season. I am going to purchase a muzzleloader but have no idea what to look for. Can anyone out there help a newbie with suggestions on what to buy? I'm looking for something fairly easy to use. I would prefer not to spend too much in the event I don like it.

I have a New England Firearms Huntsman with the Stainless barrel.

I love it. The one thing I dont like is their sights, so I upgraded them.

Gun was $200, sights were about $40.

Nice compact gun, very nice system for inserting the primers, easy to clean/disassemble.

You can also buy rifle barrels, shotgun barrels, etc to use on it as well.

check out this site...www.midwayusa.com check out there muzzleloaders. I would suggest either a CVA or Thompson Center. Both are great guns but get a stainless or nickle barrel. it will be easier to clean. Nice starters are CVA Kodiak or Wolf and Thompson Center Omega, z7 x5 type guns.

Yeah -- I seem to find myself in "jail

" one time per year.

You guys helped me get out last time so maybe you could "spring" me again.

That must be why I have not been asked to be a moderator. blush.gif

I've had a knight for 12 years, been very happy with it, no need to spend lots of $$$ on some of the new guns, stay with the basics, but make sure you use a 209 system, it will save alot of headaches, good luck with the smole pole this year

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
