With a fiery burst and cloud of black smoke, Montana’s first heritage muzzleloader hunt is set to run Dec. 11-19, giving hunters a new opportunity with traditional firearms.
The heritage muzzleloader hunt is the product of legislation earlier this year and the recent adoption of regulations by the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission. Hunters are restricted to traditional flintlock, matchlock, wheel lock and percussion muzzleloaders, a minimum of .45 caliber and maximum of two barrels and iron sights. Any deer or elk permit or license valid on the last day of the general firearm season may be used.
This is good news!

The Heritage season in MT is what’s getting me into ML shooting. Most years I suppose the weather will be prohibitive, but I would just really love to track down a big bull with a ML in December!

There’s just something cool about doing it with an Old School Sidelock Muzzleloader, When setup properly they are EXTREMELY capable If i get inside of 300 Yards of an Elk it is in DEEP Trouble
