The season will be over in a few weeks. Just take it with you and discharge it after the last hunt,or sometime after the season is over. Or pull over at one of the gravel pits and shoot away.

If it is an inline - take the breech plug out and push the charge and bullet out the breech end. MUCH easier cleanup than cleaning a discharged muzzleloader.

As long as you don't get rained on, all season.

Sounds like the powder can stay dry for awhile if kept close to the same temp. One thing I havnt seen on this thread....

What about the double loading if you leave it loaded? Seems like a big safety hazard.

Mine never comes into the house loaded, but I will leave it loaded, locked up in the pickup for a couple weeks during deer season. I have my rod marked so I'll know if I'm trying to double load it.

Mine stays loaded during season unless for some reason I get to use it.
