Default Who's taking thier muzzy for firearm opener

I'm thinking about using my muzzy gun for firearm opener but alot of people laugh when I tell them i'm taking it with me during the firearm opener, why? I hunt in shotgun zone only. I do have a shotgun and it very accurrate but it's old and I'm thinking about retiring it. This will be my second year with a muzzybut my muzzy put downmybiggest buck last year. I do have lots of confidents in it. I think I'm going to use it during the firearm opener, who else is using theirs too?

I used a muzzleloader in modern season as well. Where I hunt the range is close, and all you need is the one shot. Besides, it makes it more exciting for me.

I plan to this year, Louisa co. is shotgun Buckshot country so a rifle outside of a Muzzle Loader is a no no.

Besides, I have more fun with it than I do with my modern rifle/Shotgun anyways.

Been using a ML for the past several years, during all seasons - use a scoped inline during the regular rifle season and sidehammer for ML season...

I'll be using a ML during our firearm season. Probably use my White S91 .504 or the S91 .451.

Well I have a number of high power rifles and every 5 or 6 years I take one out and hunt with it but mostly I use a muzzle loader, about the only time I normally use something else is for bow season. Lee

I all ways use my muzzel loader! Il. is a slug gun,or hand gun only state. So using the Pro Hunter is a no brainer!

I think if the choice was between shotgun and ML that I'd take my ML. I keep saying each year that I'm going to use my ML in rifle season but I always end up with the 7mm. Good luck in whatever you choose.

Always do. Firearm, Muzzleloader, and Late Firearm. I don't even own a slug gun anymore.
