we'll give up a week, you can have the October season!JGR said:I already had a percussion cap that I had taken several deer with and loved. During January the local fire department always has a gun raffle and a few years back I had won a Browning xbolt in 7mm 08. Not wanting that gun I took the cash prize and got my Knight. Shot my first deer the next October and have split the time of carrying the two ever since. I used my Knight to take a doe at 15 yds on Pa's opening day of firearms season this year and hope to get another one with each after Christmas.
I don't think they need a special season just an inclusion into the late season like every other state. The last week is not to much to ask to be allowed to carry either of my smokepoles. That gives the flinters 5+ weeks to do their thing, and 4 weeks for the rest of us front stuffers to do ours. But from the participation I saw in the woods this season in a few years the GC will be begging anyone to carry any weapon out and kill a deer.
