Let’s compile a list of states that allow smokeless powder during their muzzleloader deer season. If your state does not allow smokeless, how come? Does your state allow centerfire rifles? What factors are used by your legislature to determine regulations that cover firearms?
Indiana - Our laws did not have a specific entry on smokeless powder until our 2004 season when the state legislature tried to restrict its use. Those of us who used it, led by Toby Bridges, started a letter writing campaign that swayed the lawmakers into re-writing the law in our favor.
How is it in your state?
This should be an eye opening exercise.
