yep we got 3 different seasons down here in tennessee. we start with bow then go muzzleloader/bow then go bow/muzzleloader or gun. then after the first part of the season we go back to muzzleloader for a week, hit muzzleloader/bow for another week and then all 3 again to finish out the season. needless to say we usually get to hunt prob 7 weeks out of each season with a rifle.

I shoot a Marlin 30-30. Not a muzzleloader owner as of yet. Just a borrower.

3030

i got a30/30 lever.i love it.up here most shoots are under 100yrds in the woods.with that new hornady ammo it shoots real flat.yeah your right about the kick or the lack of it i should say.makes shootin a pleasure.i also got a50 cal cva muzzle.

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
