Hi guys. I am new to forum but have been looking for awhile. I just moved to michigan a couple years ago from Indiana and am just now getting settled in a ready to start hunting here. Still hunt Indiana though.

My question is I want a Savage smokeless muzzleloader. Are they legal to use here in Michigan? I will be hunting around in the shotgun only zone.

Yes and no. The gun is perfectly legal during firearm and muzzleloader seasons. However, during Muzzleloader season statewide you must use regular powder or pyrodex....no smokeless. During the general firearms season in the shotgun zone, the gun is legal with regular powder or pyrodex, but not smokeless. In the rifle zone during regular firearms season, smokeless is legal. Confused yet? :) I say get the gun, it's a great muzzleloader and at somepoint it will likely be legal to use smokeless....but the gun is still a great gun with pyrodex etc.
