Muzzleloader for Rifle Season

Anyone taking out their flintlock or inline muzzleloader for rifle season? I was lucky enough to fill my buck tag in archery season for the first time this year so I have been tossing around the idea of taking my Traditions Pursuit inline out to try and fill a doe tag with in the rifle season. I got this muzzleloader last year to hunt the early season and hopefully take on an out of state hunt in the future. It's been a blast to shoot and learn about muzzleloading, but I have not had it out hunting all that much yet. Hoping to take it for a walk on the first Saturday in search of a doe.

I am taking mine. It`s either my NEF Sidekick .50 inline or my old Browning A-Bolt 30/36. Depending on the terrain I hunt in.

I will be taking out my TVM Lancaster county flintlock. I have been hunting in a special regs area for the last couple years (got permission to hunt local private land), so have been using the flintlock exclusively. Got a large doe with it last year. Hoping for a buck on the first day.

I posted about it in the traditional forum, but I took my .50 cal TVM Early Lancaster flintlock out to Montana a couple of weeks ago and used it successfully to fill my mule deer doe tag during their rifle season. Fun game to play, for sure.

Don't need more deer meat, but know families in need who could benefit. I may take my long rifle out for grins and see about getting a deer for someone in need.
