    When hog hunting dont go as planned with video

    one of two things i would love to hunt someday, bears and boars...neither of which I have near me and I can't see paying someone $500 plus on top of travel cost when they are supposedly that bad for everyone.

    multi-barrels same gun?

    Please don't shoot me

    well I do have one of each, my .54 is a lefty perc and the other one is a inline that I was going to use during reg rifle season as here we can get a tag for doe whitetails that lets you hunt any/all seasons.

    Please don't shoot me

    hence the don't shoot me LOL Co about the same as OR, during muzzle loader season its loose powder, no sabots, open sights as well, but once reg rifle season comes around you can have a scope (still can't use sabots and have to use loose powder)

    Please don't shoot me

    but I am going to ask anyway..scopes on blackpowder rifles... I was thinking of putting one on my tc omega to use during rifle season (bp season you can't use a scope) mostly for those early morning/late evening hunts here my old eyes don't work as well. I just have no idea what to look for as...
