So where do you all recommend shopping for or buying guns from?
I love this forum and wish I had come across it sooner. I live in Burnsville so we are not that far apart. I hunt in SW MN on a few public land pieces by my parents place. Its good public land because it is not pressured by deer hunters since we are in heavy agricultural country, but at the same time, it is constantly pressured by pheasant and duck hunters. So that kind of throws a kink in things when you are up in a stand and 4 hunters with 2 dogs come walking through.
A question I have about the MN ML season since you are from MN. The mn handbook online only talks about a lottery tag, but also lists the price of a tag. I am just wondering if it is by lottery only, or if the either sex tag is by lottery only, but anyone can get a buck tag? I assume anyone can get a buck tag, but just wanted to make sure.
If you are going to get an in-line the traditions Yukon is a good starter gun. I paid about $200 for mine. All I had to add was powder and primer. Last year my son took a deer at 115yds. with it. It shoots just as good as muzzle loaders costing 2 to 3 times as much. What ever you choose get a veriety of powder,primer, and bullets to get the most from your rifle. Verying the powder charge by 10 grains will make a differance in accuracy. Happy hunting.
One note, the barrel is kind of tight. Some sabots load easier in it than others.
