Can you hunt some areas with an Inline in the late ML season or must you hunt all of PA with a Flintlock?

The way I read the book section (deer season and bag limits) you can use an inline if you have an anterless license since the anterless season for 2B, 5C and 5D is from Dec. 26 to Jan 26...under "reg firearms season".

If you do not have an anterless license for those MWUs you can only use a flintlock providing you have a muzzleloader license and an unused buck tag.

Thanks guys for the information. I thought I heard you could use an inline in some areas, but I could not find the information that clearly indicated that in the PA Hunting & Trapping Digest.

Thanks again for clearing it up for me. I just hope my flintlock goes off when I hopefully see a deer this season. Appears to very slim pickens on state land. SIGH

You guys should all read your digest. There is an antlerless season in the special regulations areas begining on Dec. 26 that inlines are legfal to use if you have an antlerless license.

For those that want to hunt with your inline, you have your season before any rifle season.

So quit crying about not being able to use an inline in the FLINTLOCK season!!

We do have seperate flintlock and any ignition muzzleloader seasons. With that said, only in the flintlock season are antlered deer legal.

I have asked for antlered deer to be legal in the early inline season by draw, similar to our elk draw. Make a low number of tags available. Would generate some interest and dollars for the pgc and if the tags are kept low, the impact would be minimal.

I do alot of archery hunting but it is time that those that like firearms/muzzleloader get thrown a bone to. With particpation in rifle season dropping, the time is coming for increased firearms opportunities.

The BOC were discussing adding a week to archery season at the working group meeting but it does appear the consensus is that will not happen. If that thought was being entertained, there seems to be some room to work with the early muzzeloader season if it is done right that addresses some of the concerns from hunters that do not archery hunt that they are being forgotten.

Exactly how is anybody being forgotten in this state today? I'm not saying I disagree with your ideas but I do disagree with this part. I could be wrong but I thought the whole purpose of the early muzzy season was to help with the antlerless harvest?

Thus inline's were made legal in the "early season", which created a new interest in muzzy hunting, and a reason to buy another type of firearm.

The "late" season was originally a "Primitive weapons" season and some of us still adhere to that principal.

The funny part, at least to me, was the concern that we were going to take to many deer and were limited to certian area's to hunt and a few years later they wanted HR, but that is a totally different beast.
