muzzleloader lottery!!!

6 posts in this topic

So from what I gather is that if I apply for a doe tag for say, shotgun season, I cannot get a doe tag for muzzy season...? I can assume this is an attempt to try to reduce kill numbers for lottery areas?

This is what happens when people can hunt both firearms and muzzy season instead of the old way of having to choose one or the other. The muzzy technology improvement also has the effect of easier to use/ more reliable so more guys interested. They are more like single shot centerfires than the muzzys of 15-20 yrs ago. Also shotguns today are nothing like the old slugs and bird bead barrels. All increases harvest. If people can hunt longer (more opportunity) with more effective weapons you will have to restrict what you can take. You can't have your cake and it it too. We got what we asked for.

yes you have hunting both the shotgun and ML but if you draw a doe tag for shotgun and you don't get a deer you can't use that for ML. but my question is how do you appile for a doe tag? do you buy the tag and hope you get draw a doe tag when you let you know in the mail or what??

Just go to an ELS agent and apply through them. You will then be notified if you are successful in the drawing, if it run like last year, your notification is your either sex permit. You must specify if you are applying for the regular firearms season or the muzzy season in your permit area.

I don't have a problem with it at all, Those who hunt both have plenty of opportunity anyway to harvest a deer. I wouldn't be opposed to having it go back to the way it was years ago either....
