I'm thinking of apply for the Muzzleloader season and or the 1st rifle season and trying to find the basic rules on Muzzleloader specs and saw some info not positive of what I'm reading.
I have several Muzzleloaders but my favorite is a 50cal. Encore and I shot 240 grain Mag Sabots XTP. and I use triple 7 pelpets 100 grains and it has see through scope rings and 3x9 scope.
I would run 150 grains if you think needed for elk, I just feel for deer here does a great job with 100 grains and the XTP bullets.
Any and all info would be greatly apperciated.
1.Is a scope okay to use on black powder gun?
2. Can I use pellets or does it need to be powder?
3.Are the Elk usually in the rut for the muzzleloader season or is the 1st rifle a better choice?
I went this year 2nd season and understand each time may be different just looking for some good insight.
4.If I'm not going till 2011 and want to apply for points do I have to pay full price for points only?
