Muzzle loader or Bow?

I've been giving some thought to try my hand at muzzleloading for deer in Kansas. Only one problem, I love to bow hunt during the rut. In Kansas you can only have one primary tag which allows you to take one anltered deer.
I'm not sure I want to give up rut hunting with a bow to hunting pretty predictable feeding patterns during Sept.
Any advise or persuaion one way or the other?

I would go with the Muzzleloader this year just to try something new....You can always bow hunt them next year. Yes

Try muzzleloading season. You can always bowhunt if you don't see the buck you want in September. I like to fill a couple doe tags with my muzzleloader anyway. Thumbs up

Do you mean to hunt does and keep an eye on the bucks during muzzie season, or hunt for the buck during muzzie season and if I dont see him continue looking during bow season?

I'd hunt does and keep an eye out for a nice buck during muzzleloading season. When bow season rolls around for you...try for a buck if you didn't fill your tag earlier. Last year I fell out of my routine and went empty handed. Saw some real nice bucks early on during muzzleloading season so I set after them and turned down does and smaller bucks. Didn't catch them bucks out during muzzleloading season again. Hopefully I'll lock horns with one this season. Thumbs up

Hunting does with the muzzle loader sounds like good advice. September can be pretty hot and not much fun to hunt so I'd keep my buck tag for the archery season.
