Hello all, I have a t/c 50 cal sitting on the wall. I am thinking it is about time I used it for hunting. I am thinking about starting with spring black bear baiting and/or a trip to Prince of Wales.
I have primarily been bow hunting these past 8 or ten years. I have shot targets with the muzzle loader 15 years ago, but never hunted with it.
My questions are;
What are the muzzle loader cert. classes like? Will I learn about loading, shooting and care of the weapon? Or, is it just to get the certification for the weapons restrictions area hunts? Would I learn more about the weapon by meeting one of you guys at the range?
Finally, when and where would I get into a class?
I am happy to take the class for the certification, but also want to learn more about the weapon and the use of it.
