I hunt mainly on public land, and was wondering if anyone knows if it is legal to use a muzzleloader to hunt squirrels with. I've got a 32 cal muzzleloader and would love try it out on a few squirrels. I know you can use a rimfire rifle/pistol to hunt with, but the rules don't mention blackpowder. Does this fall under the rule of rifle use until Oct 15? On a different subject, I took my Ruger Mark 2 pistol with me today, saw 6, shot at 3 and missed 3. Shooting at a squirrel is a bit different than shooting at paper! It was fun anyway, hopefully try and make it back out again this weekend. By the way, this seems like an interesting forum that I'm going to enjoy reading. Just found it today. I'm in London, Madison county.
