Bad Bull Muzzleloaders are doing it and very accuratley too.

http://www.badbullmuzzleloaders.com/

There is no advantage to hunting with a muzzleloader in Texas because there is no muzzleloader season because it is only 9 days after the regular season has ended and it is only for does and spikes, so pretty much no one does it here.
 
In the states where muzzleloader season is before the regular season you can have a huge advantage with one of these new "super" muzzleloaders combined with one of the Nikon Muzzleloader BDC scopes or Leupold Ultimate Slam scopes.
 
How many of ya'll hunt with a muzzleloader and does anyone have any experience with one of the Bad Bulls?  A really good customer of ours swears by them and has gotten all of his friends to get one too.

 Yes I would like to know about those Bad Bulls also.  I do know that they shoot with smokeless gun powder as I do out of my Savage 10ML.  You know you can read a lot of hype on the internet so I was hoping that someone would have experience with one of these BAAAAAD muzzleloaders.

Here in Nebraska, the muzzleloader season is the whole month of December....... which is after the regular firearm season, which is Nov 15 - 23.  The bow season starts on Sept 15 and closes during the firearm season and then opens back up and goes until the end of Dec.   So the month of Dec both muzzleloader and bow are open.

There is no advantage to smoke poles in Alabama.  In some counties, it extends the "either sex" season, but since they went to 3 bucks/year, no real plus.

I enjoy Muzzle loading. I have no experience with those though.

 Unlike some others I am not looking for any advantage to deer hunting by using a muzzleloader.   I just enjoy shooting them.  That goes for traditional ones as well as the newer ones that are built to accept smokeless gun powder.   Measuring out my loads and finding bullet combinations that work is great fun.  I am having a custom made Swinglock muzzleloader assembled as we speak in .375 caliber and will not be able to legally use it during muzzleloading season here in Virginia.  But it will be legal during regular firearms season.  I have already purchased a Bushnell 6500 4.5-30x50 MilDot scope for it and can't wait to mount and shoot it.  My aspiration is to develop a MOA shooter at 500 yards.
 
 I have only read the web site concerrning the Bad Bull muzzleloaders but have never met anyone who has even seen one.
