I do think the does need to go to 4 per day and the bucks down to two per year.

This year I have only seen one doe the entire year, no bucks, and I typically see two to four good bucks per year. My father-in-law is retired and hunts almost daily and has only seen a handful of does, and three bucks, one of which he harvested.


Then why do you want to see the bag limit changed to 4 does per day?

I just had to go back and make sure I read that claim right, but take the speed out the equation.

I haven't even thought about trying to reload my .50 cal muzzleloader without taking my eyes off the target like I did as a youngster with a .410 under a hickory with a fox squirrel in the top. Come on, man. No comparison. With all due respect, even if you could reload a muzzleloader so fast, such bragging could encourage carelessness by someone else. Know what I mean?

I like a muzzy only season as well. I only recently went to an inline, i shot a cap and no scope for years. BONUS, generally much less people (around me) are hunting during muzzle loader season, which is nice. Come gun season, its like WWII around me because I hunt a smaller piece of property, so I consider muzzy my peaceful, less pressured, hunting time.

If we are going to go so far as to include shotguns and single-shot rifles in MZ season, just do away with MZ season and make it all-gun season.

I don't see how anybody can say that allowing handguns during ML season would give a hunter an advantage over the ML.

If the singleshot rifles were allowed, I doubt it would change the number of deer taken hardly any with the caliber restrictions you speak of. Few hunters would buy a single shot rifle just to gain the small advantage over a ML for a mere 2 weeks. I most likely would, but then I'm a gun nut. For instance a NEF singleshot in 357Magnum reamed out to chamber the 357Maximum would be a great woods deer rifle. \:\)
That is a mouth watering propsition...or a 445 Supermag from a 44 Magnum

When you start talking about reaming barrels and rechambering rifles you get away from what I would consider a "primitive" rifle altogether. Over-the-counter calibers are what most would use if this ever went through.

And in all honesty, I don't care how fast you think you can reload a muzzleloader. I know I can reload a single shot faster than you can load a muzzleloader. And I'll even let you have your ramrod already out \:\)


Where does it say I thought I could reload a ML fast?? ML's are definitely not fast for a 2nd shot! \:\)

Regarding the single shot rifle in a 357Magnum/Maximum, I was merely thinking outloud about the possibilites if current handgun cartridges were allowed for single shots during ML season. Any excuse to buy another gun to get "free meat".

Hunter 257W, I quoted contendershooter in that post. He had quoted your previous post (nested quotes so to speak). He previously stated he could reload his ML as fast as he could reload a single shot rifle. A feat that I would personally like to challenge \:\)

This thread is stupid. Someone joins 3 days ago and gets this kind of response making a statement that will surely get us fired up. Yep, I called it. Old member rejoining to make waves. I will stand by that until proven otherwise.

In the mean time, I'm going to the trail can forum to look at Bigfoot, black panther, and cougar pics.
