    The idea of hunting with a muzzleloader is to accept the challenge of limited distance. That's why you get to hunt during the rut here. Trying to turn it into a CF gun is not something I agree with.

    I thought I explained that I wouldn't put a scope on a sidelock, BUT I need a scope now. I never planned to shoot a scoped ML in ML season. As it turned out. I haven't, or i'd be hunting right now.

    If I could. I'd still hunt with a Hawken, black powder, and a round ball. That's what side i'm on. Instead i'll be hunting the rifle season with a ML. I've never taken the easy way to hunt, and i'm not doing it now.

    What's your problem anyway? How do you hunt, and what gun do you use? I'm betting it's an advantage over me.

    I'm sure what gun I use is not what you would choose, I'm sure that my style of hunting is not how you would hunt, i'm sure that I shoot way too far for you, and I'm sure that when I get old I'll probably go about it the wrong way. Have a good day Pete!

    As it turned out, this was my only hunt of the year, as I turned in my elk tag. I turned 52 yesterday and spent the day with my son sneaking thru the corn fields. I found this buck, taking a little nap. 50 yards with t/c thunderhawk, 295 grain powerbelts. The perfect gun for this type of hunting. Had a great time with my son. Happy birthday to me!Click image for larger version.

    I agree with old hunter. I am anti-inline for blackpowder seasons. I might have a $5000 5 pound sheep rifle, but to me blackpowder is black shooting conical balls out of a Haweken.
