    Question Scopes on muzzleloaders in AK

    I saw on a posting somewhere that it is against the law to mount telescopic sights on muzzleloaders for hunting in Alaska?

    Is this true?

    Only if it's a muzzleloading only hunting. It legal to have a scope on you ML in the general season hunt. You do have to have a muzzleloader cert to hunt any big game animal with you ML.

    You're half right Mike. You're correct that it's not legal to use a scope during the special muzzleloader season, but okay during the regular season.

    But you only have to have to muzzleloader certification to hunt with one during the special muzzleloader season. You don't need one to use a muzzleloader during the regular season.
