Muzzleloader Question
 
Hi everyone, I just have a quick question. I am planning on saving up to get a muzzleloader. I have already asked if it was worth it, and I got many good answers.

In my state, There are specific regulations for muzzleloaders. However, I have no idea where to start on how to use them. Hereís my question. For the state of Idaho, or in general, is there such a thing as a muzzleloader education class? Just to get me familiar with the firearm and how to use it?

Iím not finding anything on Idaho fish and game.

Any help with this will be appreciated, Jared

IdahoRon is a member here and quite an artist when it comes to shooting front stuffers. I would suggest getting in touch with him seeing as he is also in Idaho so not only within your state but also very familiar with your states hunting regulations so he could advise you on your front stuffer purchase. I have been shooting smokers for a little over 4 decades and am highly familiar with them. I have seen some of Ron's shooting and the man knows his stuff.

Thank you for the vote of confidence.

I actually go over muzzleloaders in my Hunters Ed that I teach. It is not required for a teacher to provide though. I would be glad to help you. I'm in the Twin Falls area. After hunting season is over if you are willing to make the drive I would be glad to take you to the range with my rifles and let you test them and see what you like and answer any questions you might have.

J, there's a few guys on here that when they talk on certain subjects- it's best to listen. Ron is one of those guys. And luckily for you he's fairly close and a willing teacher. And a successful muzzleloader hunter.

Take advantage of the opportunity some time!
