    They give you a form. You take it to your eye doctor to fill out. Then the doctor and the DOW decide if you need a special licence. Mine was a dead bang easy decision, but I still won't use it.

    I was told by a few hunters in my area that if they saw a hunter in ML season with a scope they'd turn them in to the warden. I didn't want the hassle, and I didn't want to use it if the hunters felt that way.

    If I can get an elk in rifle season with a sidelock and iron sights while they use a scoped rifle. You know i'll rub it in.

    OH...I don't disagree with your decision, it is yours to make. In my Dad's case, he would have had no choice. You would deserve to rub it in Good luck, hope you do well. At our age its just good to get out and be in the mountains with God's creatures.

    Right you are. I'll just enjoy the hunt with no expectations of a kill.

    That way I won't kill myself getting the meat out.

But if he decided to go M/L hunting, should he be denied the use of a scope on a M/L, I think not, and it appears that Colo G & F agrees also.
    Well I guess If hunting with a muzzleloader with a scope is that important than I know there are some states that allow the use of this. There are also plenty of high fenced hunts you could go on. If this is that important for 9 days of hunting per year.

    Maybe the Colo G & F would rather hand out special hall passes to anyone with just about any disability. This is probably easier than having to go to court with someone all lawyered up using the ADA to get 9 days of hunting in. Here I go again being a bully!

    That was me. Just did not see the point in beating the guy up for just trying to get more years in the woods and I don't see it as an advantage.

    im sure no one will agree with me on this one, but the smoke poles drive me nuts i promise my self every year after the season im gonna sell both of mine, they are a pain in the butt to clean, suck in wet weather, and drive me completly nuts that i can not get two bullets to touch each other at 200 yrds not to mention dangerious i can think of two guys not far from me that have lost their lives cuz of one going off when its not supposed to( one of the guys 4 year old girls got to see the 50 cal take the back of his head off ) in my opinion if i cant get the animal with my hoyt or remington i dont need to get it.

    the one were the 4 year old seen it he had his gun settin by the house door and when some one walked threw it they slammed the door the gun fell and went off, the other a guy was out with his son set the gun on hood of truck it fell off and went off as well, i know they shouldnt have still had their primers in, and i am pretty sure both the models were the inline type that use a a big spring behind the firing bolt instead of the new safer ones that break open like a single shot shot gun, but still i dont much trust them!
