Can I use my .36 cal flinter for Fall turkey?

I know this question could fit in a number of forums, but I figure the traditional guys would know best.


I am really wanting to use my .36 cal flintlock for Fall turkey, but I want to make sure I'm legal to do so in PA. Am I good to go for this weekend? The hunt digest says "muzzleloading, shotguns, rifles and handguns", so I am safe to presume that any caliber is legal?


This will be a patched roundball setup, of course. Thanks for your help.

The digest does not state a minimum caliber and does state rim fires rifles are OK so it looks like yes to me.

Thank you - the lack of caliber listing in the turkey section is what had me concerned. I know there is a minimum for big game, but I wasn't sure if that meant that there was some default minimum that I was missing, or if the big game min applied (which wouldn't make much sense, but you just never know).

Awesome. I suspect this could be a lot of fun. The landowner said he saw them out in several spots today.

Just to follow up - I did take out the .36 cal and I did get a bird with it this past Saturday. Hunt report is in the Turkey Hunting forum under the thread title, "2A Turkey Down."


Thanks again for the help guys!
