I've got a EuroOptic ordered from OP.  It showed in stock.  Called and ordered, lady said ships in March.  Account says July.  Might have time to cancel if proposed change doesn't happen.  Other sites are BO.

For all you that wanna put a scope on a muzzy and hunt I am pretty sure you can do it during modern deer and elk season, spring bear, fall bear and cougar season.  So if you wanna use a muzzy with scope just do it during one of those seasons.  Leave muzzy the way it is.  I wish they wouldn't have went to 209 either.

I guess Archery and rifle are the only things that can have advancement of technology  :dunno: every time muzzy has had any everyone gets their panties in a bunch.

For the record Iím not advocating for the rule change Iím gonna keep doing the same thing Ive been doing for 20 years. But itís laughable to think this is whatís going to be the demise of the herds, it wasnít the demise when archery allowed fiber optics and lighted knocks and they will survive 1x scopes too.

As far as people flocking to muzzy? I donít think so, thereís not much of an attraction to a 6 day season that doesnít even encompass two full weekends ... muzzy in Wa has the crappiest seasons. Muzzy hunters in Wa have been dwindling every year if guys want to try the short season and clean their gun more In one day then they have in their lifetime I say let them.  :twocents:

6 Days?
I've always thought muzzy had the best season being 7 days early season and 21 days in the late season, I'll be switching to rifle hunting if they legalize any type of scope :bdid:

Its is 7 but seems like 6 cause its Sat thru the next Fri, its the only season of the three methods that doesn't even encompass two full weekends  :dunno:

 I'm not up on the West side elk cause I always hunt east but the west used to have a decent late season and still may but the late season in the East is in areas of little elk AND mostly all private lands. The state still counts those as days for the muzzloaders even though its largely unattainable for the average hunter.

I believe March 25 and 26th are the recommendation meeting and the final yes or no is in April sometime. I think they basically follow the recommendation of the committee almost always.

You don't have to use one just because they make it legal. I don't understand why you would switch? I'm opposed to the rule change but it won't change what I do.... I still use musket caps too. It doesn't affect me.

Anyone have any luck finding 1x scopes.  I dont think a red dot will be that effective unless you get a very good one (1 moa)

there alot of "tactical" options for a 1x optical sight, a 1moa red dot would work but isnt fool proof. i honestly hope they let us use 3x9 scopes. anything to help the idiot who shoots his muzzleloader once a year ya know.
