Have not purchased a muzzleloader license the past two years. Not related to the legalization of crossbows but rather the idea that a buck cannot be harvested with a muzzleloader during the early muzzleloader season. Typically do not have a buck by the time of early muzzleloader and getting a doe is not too important so I would end up taking my bow anyways for that opportunity at a buck.
If a muzzleloader only season or a season that allowed the bucks to be shot with a muzzleloader then I would have more of a desire to muzzleloader hunt. Can hunt with my bow during this late season.
