To each their own, but I wouldn't want to hunt and shoot from a boat. To me, it would be like driving around in a truck and shooting from the truck. I'd be okay with using the boat to spot and then do a stalk, but it would take the fun out of the hunt for me if I just shot the critter from the boat.
Again, not criticizing those that do, it just isn't for me.
I guess I am up in the air on if I would be all about it or not. I have got absolutely no problem with other people doing it and I would have to try it for myself before I could decide. I think a float hunt would be awesome and I think I would definitely prefer a stalk because I think that is the most exciting form of hunting but I think I would have to be in the situation (of shooting from the boat) before I would know what I would do.
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....
