Muzzy License sales trend.

Anyone know how this years Muzzy sales are going?

The trend has been Muzzy down and Archery up since the xbow inclusion.

If Muzzy sales continue to drop will the GC make changes to the Flintlock Only Season and allow inlines, or allow bucks to be harvested in the early Muzzy Season to boost sales?

Re: Muzzy License sales trend.

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.

Re: Muzzy License sales trend.

All of the many guys that I know who hunt flintlock season, are very much against inlines in the season. The love the challenge of the season.

We'll soon hear how the state needs to get with the progarm and join other state which have given in to the, "Make it easy enough for even me to do." hunters.

Re: Muzzy License sales trend.

So, you take a post where I just provide info on license sales numbers to attack me?

Was wondering if they dropped again in 2011.

Re: Muzzy License sales trend.

I was replying to the OP.
The point is that I think the idea of in-lines in flintlock season is a bad one-weather to boost sales or not.

Consider this, back in the mid to late 90's, those sales were right around 90,000. 100,000 in 1999.

Not at present would I see bucks in the early season. It would create a new "first day" of buck season in this state.

You replied to ME. Look again at who you replied to.

Sorry Dutch, not the first time I've done that by mistake. Take no offense, none was meant.
