I am looking at muzzleloader hunting and muzzleloaders

What have you successfully hunted with a muzzleloader ?

Has anyone here hunted Grizzly, Africa D/G, or even moose with a muzzleloader ?

I've been hunting with ML's for over 30 years. I've put a lot of deer on the ground in that time.

I'm sure there may be some here who have used them on moose and elk, etc.

Good luck with it. They are a lot of fun, but you need to learn a few things about how to use them safely and correctly. Find someone with experience to teach you, or feel free to hit me up with your questions.

John, sounds like Brian ( above post ) can help you and also dont forget Tom. Tom loves muzzleloading hunting and has some VERY NICE muzzleloaders also. I am sure between him and Brian they could get you started.

I dont use them as they are too much trouble for me---But, my dad, like Tom, loves them. He fancies himself as some sort of Daniel Boone, but mum always smiles and mumbles something that sounds like Elmer Thudd ( sp ? )

Anyway to answer your question, I know he has hunted Elk and Moose in the Colonies, Lion and Plains game in Africa, and Red Stag and Wild Boar in Argentina. And I think he tried goat but not sure how that went.

Best Regards,

Jamila

I have gotten several whitetails, and a moose so far with my muzzle loader. I have hunted bears of both color with it but haven't taken one yet. I'm sure it is up to the task

Deer and elk both, with a traditional rifle, not one of the newer. In my little world sphere to many season's overlap its not convenient for me to hunt with them any more. My success is much better with a rifle, so I concentrate on those hunts.

An elk in NM a couple of years ago, and some deer here in MI.

In NM it was a way to get to hunt a "better" unit and here at home it's a way to add a couple of weeks to deer season.

I would do a muzzleloader elk hunt again if I had the option. Then again, I'd do any type of elk hunt if given the option. :grin:

Lot's of Deer and Elk. Been at it for 30 years. Like others have said - reach out for some information and save yourseld a lot of grief. With Muzzleloader - a good shot and it's over. A bad shot and it's a bad day. Since you only get the one shot - make it count and you will have a great time wth it.

Forgot to mention - I have a Elk Muzzleloader hunt this fall off the breaks of the Snake and Salmon rivers here in Idaho. Looking forward to THAT !!
