I have a 50 cal flinter that will place three shots inside an inch at 75 yards. (off bench)

So I am thinking head shots this spring with this gun? Out of pop up blind with some steady sticks I think, I can pull it off with some more range time. What ya think?

If it is a smooth bore or a fowler rock and roll and good luck, but I am pritty sure that the spring is shotgun only and you are not permitted to use a rifle

I thought you can use rifle up state near Williamsport. I will check the regs before I head out this spring.

The following was taken from the hunting digest

Spring Gobbler Season: 1) Manually operated and autoloading
shotguns limited to no more than three rounds in the chamber and
magazine combined; 2) muzzleloading shotguns of all types and
gauges; and 3) long, recurve, compound bows or crossbows with
broadheads of cutting edge design. Shotgun fine shot pellets only,
no larger than No. 4 lead, bismuth-tin, and tungsten-iron, or No. 2
steel. Rifle/shotgun combinations may be used if ammunition is
confined to shotgun shells. Carrying or using single projectile ammunition,
rifles, handguns, dogs, electronic callers, drives and live
decoys is unlawful. Hunting by calling only. Noon is closing time
and hunters should be out of the woods by 1 p.m. to minimize
disturbance to nesting hens.

oh crap thanks for the heads up. Looks like I am going to have to get the bow ready. I just might take it for some ground hogs. I would love to see what my current load will do GH.

I'll tell you what, Orvis posted a great idea for anybody that hunts with blackpowder...groundhog hunting. There's no better way to keep your hunting skills sharp and if you can smoke a groundhog, well you shouldn't have any problem hitting a deer this season.
