    Muzzleloader? Brand? Caliber? What kind of powder do you use?

  2. My preferred deer hunting weapon is my .30-06 FN. It is topped with a Leupol VariX II 3-9x scope. I shoot Remington 180 gr. core-loks through it and they do the job quite well.

    For ML hunting I have a CVA Staghorn. It is cheap but does the job. So far I have killed a nice 8 pointer with it. I use 90 grains of Pyrodex and shoot Buffalo Bullets.

    I use a Remington Woodsmaster .308 with a Redfield 3x9. I don't do any muzzleloading in Maine because I am not there long enough.

    my favorite gun was always my 6mm Remington but I traded that to get my son his youth .223 W/3x9 bushnell and I hate to admit it... but I also love this little gun,its great in a blind or a tree stand because of its short length and less movment to get it to your shoulder,and not to mention its accuracy for those pin point shots if needed :D
    My favorite bow is my Martin Jaguar I use a 26" 2213.
