    Default T/C Northwest Explorer or Knight Bighorn

    Hello all,

    New guy to this forum, and hope everyone hunting season is going well to this point. I been wanting to get into muzzleloading for some time now, and finally made my mind up on getting the T/C Northwest Explorer or the Knight Bighorn. My reasons for these two front stuffers is that I live in Oregon and we have some of the strictest regulations on what you can use and what you cannot. Wanted to know some of your feedback concering these two inlines, and which one would you choose if you were going hunting for whitetails. I notice it is really tough to find the T/C Northwest Explorer anymore, most say it's discoutinued. Thanks again and looking forward to get to know some of you on this forum. Best Regards Jeff.

    I'm not familiar with either one of them. Give us some more details about your requirements in Oregon and what makes these two stand out.

    These are the regulations for all muzzleloader hunts in Oregon :) Basicly, all muzzleloaders must be open ignition, only percussion or musket caps for ignition, open sights, no pelletized powder, only lead bullets, and the list goes on and on. Hope this clear it up a bit, kind of like mud.

    These two muzzleloaders are made specifically for Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, that have specific regulations. These are set up with all open ignition, and designed for percussion or musket caps.

    I would look for a White muzzleloader, Super 91 or a Whitetail in 504 cal.
