Reb, are you sure? My father-in-law (who by the way is NEVER wrong ) told my brother in law that they were illegal in south central GA. I'm not sure exactly what county our new lease is in but its approx 20 minutes just north of Madison in Quitmann Ga.

Is this what you needed.... looks like they are legal - all the time (page 7 of the Georgia hunting regs....

Quote:

Muzzleloaders:
.44-cal. or larger, or
muzzleloading shotguns 20 gauge or larger.
Primitive Weapons:
Legal weapons during
primitive weapons season include crossbows
(scopes legal), bow and arrow, and muzzleloading
firearms (scopes legal). Muzzleloader hunters
may use scopes, iron sights or peep sights (fiberoptic
is OK) during primitive weapons season.
