    Anyone going to tickle or rattle some antlers tomorrow? I’ve never had success with it but may give it a try again this year, thought it may still be little early

    I think the train of thought is that a barrel acclimated to the weather will be less likely to sweat causing the powder to retain moisture and misfire. I really don’t subscribe to it. Beer cans sweat when they come out of cold and go into warm humid air. Not so much the other way around. I have a buddy that is religious about acclimating his barrel. I don’t care one way or another. It has never affected my guns performance that I’m aware of.

    Yes sir I believe I will Rattle a little tomorrow if I get bored
    I dug out my original horns from the first buck I ever killed “a 14” wide 6 point “ I’ve used for almost 20 years
    Very memorable hunt
    You never forgot the first one I guess

    but I guess it’s a lot easier to forget to unload after the last evening on the last day of the last muzzleloader last year lol
    I’m also guilty on one of three rifles I was nominated to care for
    And guess who’s needed a little extra care ? yep ole dads

    Just use it. Never had an issue with it on the newer MLs. We had about a 20 page long debate on here a couple years back. My dad, who has built many a flintlock from scratch and used every ML dating back in time, says if you are storing your gun properly then there’s not a safer or dryer place to have your powder. He does recommend shooting them out folks so be calm but if you didn’t and you know didn’t knock anything off to your knowledge, you should be fine.

    And the disagreement begins…now…go!

    I’m working by Knox. Not much rain but the wind is howling pretty good. Wouldn’t be high off the ground this morning, that’s for sure. Good luck fellas! Be safe and check in later!
