How many of you do NOT use a scope on your M/L?

I don't on my sidehammer muzzleloader. I hunt with it a few times a yr back in some thicker cover where shots will be short. My Omega sports a scope though.

I have a .45 Kentucky rifle that I build from a kit. I hunt with it sometimes and it does not have a scope. Acutally killed my first MZ deer with it using a round ball.

I have over under scope mounts and have shoot a fox facing me at appx. 60 yards and a deer at about 40 yards with my open sights. I have also shot several using the scope (NiKon 2-7). I trust my open sights as much as my scope. I keep the scope on there for picking them out in the heavy brush and because I have one on my rifle so it just seems comfortable to have it there.
