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.
