I concur with the sentements posted above. I recognize the right of hunters within the respective regulations to hunt with whatever the state defines as a legal weapon. Where I have problems is confusing the spirit and what I believe to be the intent of "muzzleloader" season with the march of technology. In good conscience I simply do not accept that an in-line, scope sighted, sabot loaded rifle is consistent with the original definition of a muzzleloader as a flint/percussion, iron sighted, patched ball weapon. To each his own but hunting is in my final analysis a test of skill and craft; if believe you need more of both when you accept the limitations and challenges of a traditionally defined muzzleloader.
