Has there been any consideration by TWRA to legalized the use of primitive weapons, such as the single-shot 45-70 during primitive weapons/muzzleloader season?

I know the 45-70 is consider a primitive weapon and can be used during muzzleloader season in Mississippi. With the advancements in today's in-line muzzleloaders(accurate to over 200 yds), as well as, the fact that the 45-70 single shot is a primitive weapon, I personally don't see why we can't now use other primitive weapons, such as the 45-70 during muzzleloader season.

Any input from TWRA would be appreciated. Thanks

There has been discussion on the issue and the recommendation of the staff was not to make the change.

maybe TWRA should reconsider blackpowder cartridge, a specific license would create more revenue and purchase of rifles and accessories would help boost the economy, jmo

Would all 45-70's be considered primitive? New 45-70 cartridges are any thing but primitive.

reloads are better than factory, I am putting 10 shots in a 5 inch circle at 300 yards with iron sights with my .40-65 Shiloh Sharps, the guys out west are inside a 3 inch circle

a .40-65 is just a .45-70 necked down to 40 caliber

The most commonly used "style" of muzzleloader are anything but primitive. I don't think that is the point any longer. Loading through the muzzle does create a limitation. Once the gun is loaded, it is certainly not primitve.

As it is, it is my opinion we do not need another season "type" nor do we need to make muzzleloader season any less primitive. However, that is just my opinion. My true feeling as that we should have one season-Oct. 1-Jan, shoot whatever you want with current limits to remain. Cost of license to be the total of the three seperate tags.

But that is just my opinion \:\)
