T/C encore muzzleloader sights

4 posts in this topic

I am looking to replace the front fiber optic sight on my 209x50 encore.I was not too impressed last year with the sight in low light conditions,it seemed like the red front sight disappeared even during the day if it was cloudy or snowing hard and almost impossible for me to see during the last half hr of legal shooting.Anybody have similar problems?Or can anyone reccomend a good one

I don't know about other sight options, but both of my muzzleloaders have fiber sights with the front being red. A friend of mine broke his front sight and took the gun to an archery shop(Scheels) and they put new fiber in it for just a couple bucks. He said they had a big roll of the stuff. Might be worth checking out what colors they have and just getting the fiber replaced in your sights.

Try green fiber optics, they show up much better than red. If not green try to find yellow.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
