Muzzleloaders
« on: June 11, 2006, 10:21:44 AM »
Do we have any muzzleloader hunters out there? I've been shooting mine at the range a couple times a year. Two years in a row I carried it during the bear hunting season, but I've always wanted to hunt whitetails with it.
Here's to a long life and a merry one.

A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold pint-- and another one!

Mea and J.J. do it. so does my brother, my friend Joe.
there is a group of guys that I go with down by detroit lakes for the last four years.
myself, I have been doing it since i was sixteen. actually I have been shooting since I was about twelve thanks to ol putz.
now with his newly remodeled eyeball (cataract surgery) he may even be able to do it again too!

They seem to be a pretty reserved group. Or maybe I just don't hang out in the right places. There is no mistaking a front stuffer at the range though. I always try to get downwind from everyone. Do you stand hunt or is it mainly drives?

I`m sort of a newbie, bought mine 5 yrs ago. Two of my sons each bought one last year.
 Started hunting deer 2 yrs ago (Had never done any kind of deer hunting before)and got my first doe on the last day of the season last December. My boys have yet to bag one, but they`re learning.
 We all have 50 cal. inlines.
 Its another way of enjoying the outdoors with the boys.
