Personally I'd choose the shotgun. Easier to clean. However the muzzleloader has some advantages.
1: There's not as many hunters in the woods during muzzleloader season which means less pressured deer.
2: Muzzleloader ammo is often in stock when shotgun ammo is not.
3: Muzzleloaders are more fun to shoot (in my opinion)
4: Cheaper ammo(especially when compared to sabot slugs for shotguns)
The only disadvantages for muzzleloader are
1: they take longer to clean
2: You can only fire one shot at a time compared to pump or semi auto shotguns. However it only takes one shot.
At least you can use muzzleloaders our county don't allow them. Archery and shotgun only
