I'm all for it as long as people still understand the limitations of their blackpowder gun

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

I agree with that too Joel but think of it this way, if someone is looking thru a scope and shooting at a Deer that's standing 250 yards away
and their bullet will only reach 200 yards, All their going to hit is the ground..

Joel, that's a good comment with or without a scope. Know your own limitations and that of your weapon. When using the flintlock and open sights I really try for shots ranges of 20-75 yds.

I think it's fine to have scopes on muzzleloaders, but I think that calling these new muzzleloaders "primitive firearms" is a bit of a stretch. If someone wants to hunt with an inline, primered, scoped muzzle loader...it should have to be in the regular firearms season. Some of these new guns shoot farther, and are accurate farther out than certain centerfire loads that are legal to hunt with.

I agree with flexj. Maybe someday they will reclassify the inline to a std firearm and keep the designated muzzleloader season to the primative firearms. The technology changes have made a big diff over the last 10 years however the laws governing the seasons have not changed in NH. I would welcome a seperate
primative season.

Case in point: We have towns designated for shotgun only but using your inline muzzleloader is allowed. I will always grab my inline Omega over my shotgun within the regular designated firearms season.
