And Adam..I applaud you for doing so. it is a neat thing to hunt in that manner. Only thing I was saying..just because you or anyone else enjoys doing it your way..doesn't mean the newer ways are wrong. I'm glad the mountain men didn't have 4 wheelers or semiauto guns. They lived a hard but fullfilling life...in my estimation. Is the flintlock season 3 weeks long? Is it flinters only?? I thought they changed it to percussion too. Merry Christmas to y'all too. One thing I like about Wyoming..people aren't politically correct here. 98% say Merry Christmas...as opposed to about 20% back east

skeet,

Yes, the three week after-Christmas PA Traditional deer season is Flintlock Only. The week-long October antlerless ML deer season is "Any Muzzleloader" so flintlocks, caplocks and inlines with scopes are legal. I have a little pony horse who goes afield with me after Christmas. She is merely along to pack out our deer if we are fortunate afield.

Adam

Surprisingly..we don't have a muzzleloader season per se.. In one of the greatest mountain man areas of the west. many people hunt with them though..I know a fellow who killed his elk with a flinter 3 yrs ago.. It missed fire last year..so the elk got himself outta there. He used a percussion this year..but no elk yet. Less'n a week left
