This bill has about as much chance of passing as I do jumping over the moon! The Pa Legislation will not give the PGC the much need rate hikes as long as they continue to underperform on the one animal management issue most Pa hunters are concerned with...DEER.
Legislators whose constiuents suffer thru low deer herd numbers that drstically effect the area's economy would soon find themselves out of a job come election time if they support this bill!!
Does the PGC need a rate hike...yes they do. Will they get it...#1 not until they allow deer numbers to rebound #2 Not unless they recant their original statement that 90% of any rate hike would go towards "Administrative fee" rater than habitat improvement.
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....
