Youth muzzleloader options

Recommended Posts

Hello all

Any input on best starter muzzleloader for a 12 yr old? Not looking for a sniper rifle, just a good, basic, modest weight, easy to handle muzzy good to 50 yds. He also is a lefty, which makes things more interesting. He will be using it for the muzzy season, so no scope. Looking forward to hearing what has worked for your kids.

Thanks

I don't have experience setting a kid up for muzzleloading, but I am a lefty and use a CVA Kodiak pro; the stock is made to be ambidexterous, it fits me well. They are pretty reasonably priced also. You could research the recoil difference between a 45 caliber and a 50, maybe the 45 kicks substantially less, but I have never checked into that.

I'd suggest the Kodiak. I found an used and wow good deal for 100 bucks. I suggest them because they used to have external safety's.

I started my father in it and I think he's probable more of a kid then yours... We did put a Limb Saver Pad on the back end of it so it would kick less. Don't know why he was soo scared of a 50 cal when he's shot 12 ga before and was over 300 lbs at the time. Make it fun and hopefully it will take off.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
