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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
