If you were to drive an extra 10-12 hrs into Sask I can help you out there.
One point to note is that SK and I assume MB as well (especially the northern farmland/forest fringe zones) have had 2 nasty winters in a row and the deer herd has suffered. No panic yet (there were plenty of deer and they could have used a little thinning anyway) but from talking to the folks back home numbers are noticeably down.
I found out alot last night about MN, I was thinking about maybe finding a place to set up camp and get myself a hog but Ive found out there arent many left and that only residents to MN can hunt them without tags. There is no open seasons for non-residents and most of the other hunts you need a guide. I'm one of those fellas that dosent like to use a guide if I dont have too. Oh well Ill have to find another hunt. I'll stick to hunting deer, moose and bear here we have lots. Bear hunting less then 2 weeks YEAHYA wish me luck.
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
