Unit 7

I think that is because you use Unit 7's hunt code as it is used as the catch all unit for 9/19/191.  But the harvest and preference point docs still reflect the individual units info.

Muzzle deer and elk season

Muzzle deer and elk season for unit 19 are lumped together with unit 7.  Look at the stats for unit 7.  

In general, if you can't find what you're looking for in the stats, check the regs to see how the hunt codes are listed.  This can save some frustration when getting lost in all of the data.

And for my 2 cents on modern muzzleloaders, I really like hunting with the inlines.  I don't think they are particularly more accurate than the sidelocks.  You can put the primer in when entering the field and be safe whereas the sidelock is best kept uncapped until you're ready to shoot--which could be considered a significant advantage in some circumstances.  But overall, the biggest advantage I have found is the ease of cleaning when hunting.  The biggest differences/advantages I could point out would be in the powder choice and bullet choice.  Colorado allows the use of both Triple7 and Blackhorn209.  

Silly part of the Colorado regs not allowing sabots is the limitation on the iron sights pretty much makes those useless anyway.  Who cares if your ballistics are good to 200 yards when there really is no way to be accurate past 100 yards with iron sights.  Colorado also used to limit the length of the bullet to 2x the width meaning you couldn't shoot a .50 caliber bullet that was longer than 1 inch.  Pretty much meant you could shoot up to 300 grain bullets and that was it.  They realized that was kind of stupid I guess and changed those regs 2-3 years ago.

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread.  Just thought the muzzleloader comments were interesting.

No, the inlines are much more accurate if you compare to a sidelock with a slow twist that shoots a PRB. No comparison at all. I have a friend who can shoot 2" groups at 200yds with a peep sight with his inline. 3/4" groups at 100yds.

One of the advantages is the 1-28 twist in inlines that shoot long conicals like a CF gun. They shoot flat compared to the rainbow trajectory of the sidelock which has a choice between the PRB and a heavy lead conical.

Then your friend is a hell of

Then your friend is a hell of a lot better shooter than I am.  I can't shoot a 2" group with a center fire rifle and open sights at 200 yards.  3/4" group at 100 yards is pretty much shooting right on top of each other with a .50 caliber bullet!  

That said, you speak straight to my point about bullets and powder.  Is your your buddy who shoots 2" groups with his inline using roundballs or black powder?  Faster twist makes a difference for sure because it determines the kind of bullet you can shoot.  The inline with a slow twist barrel shooting a round ball isn't going to give you 2" groups at 200 yards--even if you could shoot that with a conical and black powder substitute.

With the best bullets and hottest powders most muzzle shooters aren't going to get much past 100 yards with confidence anyway with open sights.
