I recently moved to Idaho from Michigan, and after reading the weapons restrictions, I discovered that the TC prohunter that I bought last year is illegal to hunt with here. The law states that muzzleloaders shall be equipped with a flint, percussion cap or musket cap. 209 primers are prohibited. Also, all muzzleloaders shall have exposed pivoting hammer and have an exposed ignition system. Is there anything new out there that would comply with these regs, or am I going hunting with the old Hawken this year?
whats wrong with the hawken?tell him hunting manSounds like a good reason to get a new rifle,as if ya need a reason right ,ronn,wmi,one horse and the rest of ya.you know who you are
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
Sounds like one of those laws that falls in that category with no hunting on Sundays. I'm not much help. I know there is a gun out there that is more modern and very accurate at long ranges but I can't remember the name of it. There was a post on this board recently about it. PRICEY but legendary accuracy.
Thanks for the info, I will check out the gibbs. As for the hawken, I love that gun and have kill many whitetail in MI with it. Lugging a gun around on a wet mountain all day that is hard to clean at the end of the day dosn't sound to appealing to me
