Yeah it probably will for a year or two. Then those people will get discouraged because most still won't even get into
 any elk.

This topic is one of many that proves why hunters will continue to lose hunting issues. Everyone argues that one hunting group or another is better/unethical/or whatever.  If you want to hunt muzzy with what ever is legal, have at it, if not, donít try and kill it for other hunters. Itís the same with bait and non-bait. Or hounds or non-hounds. As hunters we should take and keep every right that this state will give us.  Or whatever, really doesnít matter to me.

Add me to the list of people that would rather this doesn't pass, but if it does I will be topping my muzzy with a red dot.

I prefer my primitive weapon seasons longer and with less people, but I don't have a lot of control over that.

You will never shoot a camp bull by spending all your time hunting in the woods.

I'd totally support loin cloths if that meant no orange. Imagine how much that would clash.

Better have a strong stomach if hunters will be walking around in loin cloths. Orange is acceptable if that is the case.  :chuckle: :dunno:

The state takes away half of the bear season (spring-fall) and other tags, then they want to give you an optics choice for muzzle loaders. this is suppose  to pacify us? :dunno:

I'm all for arguing about stuff and I find the ability and the physics of a muzzleloader to be accurate for the average shooter out to 400 yards to be fascinating but is this the argument that Washington hunters should be having? I'd love to own a Muzzleloader that could drop a big Muley at 400 yards more often than not but first you have to find that Muley. Maybe there's a lot more deer in the places that I don't hunt but the few people I discuss the deer population around the state with, seem to be seeing the same thing I am.
 Considering what the state has been doing the last twenty years or so with wolves, bears and cougar, it seems a little disingenuous to now be discussing improvements in the methods we use to hunt deer and elk with. Just me?!?

OK I'm 42 so this won't apply to me for a wile.  Going through this topic there are a lot of people saying the older generation are being pushed out due to eyesight and that's same with archery.  What does everyone think about running scopes on muzzleloader  let's say 60 and older to keep them doin what they love  same with archery  say crossbow during archery for 60 and above.   I mean there is already a little season during modern for whitetail for over 65

Great idea! It's kind of a tough pill to swallow when your eyes don't work like they used to.

How many can remember a fairly distinct moment in time when the realization set in, that using traditional open sights (bead in a groove) wasn't going to be an option for very much longer?

It can happen faster than you think! If you have cataract surgery, it is something that will change immediately, as depending on the option you select, you cannot focus near and far. Only one or the other.

I'm just curious what company will be selling the most powerful one power scope. Seems like a business opportunity for whom ever wins that title.  :dunno: :chuckle:
