Be sure to read the entire change, this does not relate to the muzzleloader season, here is the actual change:
Quote:
Magnifying scopes, draw locks and crossbows
Another change the board approved will allow the use of three items during Utah's any-weapon big game hunts: Magnifying scopes on muzzleloaders, draw lock devices on bows and the use of crossbows.

This will be a huge revenue maker for the DNR. Many folks will take to the woods with a 3X9 on the muzzy next year. We'll call it the "dollars from dumbarses" program.-------SS

this will just lead to having to allow magnifying scopes during the regular muzzle loader season.

I'm not understanding why I'm hearing so many people say that they are now allowing the use of magnified scopes during the muzzleloader hunt. READ THE RULE CHANGE! IT DOESN"T SAY THAT! Maybe they could have worded it better.

One idiot interprets it wrong and blabs his mouth off when he doesn't know what they are talking about.

While I understand you sentiment, you must remeber that these things are almost never written as to be easily understood.------SS

I totally agree. Although, I never really understood why this wasn't passed earlier. Choosing a muzzleloader during the rifle hunt isn't my first choice, but black powder rifles are pretty dang fun.

I like the idea of magnifying optics on a quality modern muzzeloader. With my aging eyes I have 3 muzzeloaders that will outshot my ability to get a clear site picture. I have done all of my hunting with a muzzeloader since 1992. to include a moose in 1998. I hope to draw a mountain goat permit this year. It's nice to know I can slip my Leapold III 2.5-8 on one of my Austin Hallics.

I would not like to see this trickel down to muzzeloader only seasons. It will only contaninate the idea of "primitive weapons" hunting. I thought the introduction of 209 primers was a little to modern to consider it traditional hunting. I have 3 black powders that I still use only plack powder and round balls with. I did get on the band wagon and upgrade to modern designs once I chose to use my smokles weapons just for varmets. A 338 win mag is a little overkill on coyotes

For this to happen you would have to see some Enforcement during the hunt. Been muzzleload hunting for 33 years only talked to one DWR person and he was just hunting. Never been checked. So once every 33 years the people using magnifing scopes will get to contibute to the DFDA Fund.

That is what I worry about if the DWR does not educate people better about this rule change. People will throw 3X9s on their muzzleloaders and use it for years and not even know they are breaking the law.
