Inlines after Christmas?

This probably has already been talked about but I was wondering if anyone has been hearing the rumors of letting the inline group have a concurrent season with the flintlockers.

Personally, I HOPE and PRAY that never happens. Flintlock season is a special time, tradition and something I look forward to every year. Nothing against inlines and people who use them but it would take away more than it would gain.

Anyone else hear anything?

Re: Inlines after Christmas?

I fear it. I think it could happen because we are killing so few doe in the regular rifle season. I agree more does need killed. The way to do it is to go back to the full two weeks of doe. But, politically, it would be tough. That is why I fear the PGC may want inlines after Christmas.

Re: Inlines after Christmas?

Already been discussed and beaten into the ground every year on here.. Heck, the horse doesn't exhist anymore as it's been beeten in the ground so much and buried. I don't see it changing anytime soon. Inlines have their season in Oct. Flinters have theirs in Dec/Jan. period...

Re: Inlines after Christmas?

that long dead none existent horse keeps rearing it's head though.

Gotta wonder if some in-line companies are behind it, stirring things up.

There are few things as vehemently supported as our late season flintlock hunt. If such a proposal came up, the commission would find it's building surrounded by companies of colonial garbed riflemen. It is the one thing that most makes hunting in PA unique among all the states.

If a group goes to ask for in-lines in the late season, I have no problem asking if they are just too lazy or too stupid to learn to shoot a flintlock.

Re: Inlines after Christmas?

I'm not new to HPA but don't sit for hours reading all forums so I suspected that this topic was brought up. Now that I know that it has been brought up you do not have to reply that it has. I already know and I don't care about this "horse" that people are referring to.

I just wanted to see what people think. I'm sure 95% or more of the flintlockers would be against it. I'm sure the inline companies are in favor, just like the crossbow companies were.

If it ever comes to it (which hopefully it doesn't), I'm sure we'll put up a good fight.

Thanks again.

Really?

But its ok for hunters to use flintlocks in the "early inline" season?

Give me a break.

Adding inlines to the late season would do nothing, but give more hunters the opportunity to go out and hunt instead of sitting inside on these rainy winter days complaining about someone taking away their special season.

Take a kid hunting, it's the future of our sport and the future is now!

Re: Inlines after Christmas?

whats the big deal? In Colorado we have our muzzy season open to all muzzleloaders but are limited to loose powder, open sights. Smokeless- sabots - pellet powder are illegal.

Tradition is a personal thing, why do you care if someone else you don't know is using an inline? You should only worry about yourself and use what you enjoy.

I use both and the sidelock i shoot is almost as accurate as my scoped inline.

Re: Inlines after Christmas?

hey ace, it's not called early inline season for that reason! You said it would give hunters the opportunity...they already had it! Each hunter that decided to ride the early muzzy wave in that bought a new gun had two choices:
- buy a flintlock that could be used in both seasons, but is harder to master and has a shorter effective range OR
- get an line, limiting them to one season but easier to learn and shoots farther.
