My daughter is 17. She hunts with a 243. What would be a good primitive weapon to get her to use during primitive weapon season?

A Handi rifle 44 mag, Not a lot of kick, easy to use and accurate. It also has the knock down.

I second LH the 44 Mag does not have the recoil of the other legal calibers but they also lack the range..

I haven't killed a big pile of deer with a .44 mag but I have taken several. I shot through one, bow to stern, at 130 yards with my little Ruger. I wouldn't be afraid to take a shot at 150 yards with it.

What happened to the idea of using a muzzleloader for you all's primitive season? In my opinion a .44 mag shouldn't be allowed in such a season.

it may not go back, but I am. Gonna hunt with a smokepole and black this year and no inline. Quigs is trying to get me to get a flintlock but I haven't taken that big of a step so far...

The hunt would be more memorable for her with a muzzleloader. ;)

You're right Quigs , nothing like downing any animal with a muzzleloader ! BG hunting with a flintlock is in my future as well , just getting all the parts ready to have a .62 English Sporting Rifle built .

Still collecting parts Quigs . Bought the barrel from Rice , it was rifled with Forsyth rifling in .62. Most of the other parts were sourced from Track of the Wolf . Once everything is here i'll send Glen a parcel and have him build one bad ass English Sporting Flinter !

Quigs yes i'll put up a pic once it's finished . At the moment he's putting the finishing touches on a Model A Mauser look alike with a .54 Greenmountain barrel with 1:72 or 78 twist, can't wait to take that one to the range and fool a couple off inline shooters !
