I am posting this to try & find out if anyone else feels like I do. It seems as though the muzzle loader has turned into a modern weapons hunt. It was first started as a traditional type hunt in the primative area. Now it sems as though all it's just an early hunt with modern weapons that meet the basic discription. So I feel like if thats the case why not include antique weapons in the same hunt. I am not talking about replecas, but actual guns that were made before 1898. Please reply with your thoughts thanks.
