    I would get the dog into lots of birds and with an experienced dog with birds when you can. Sometimes show and tell works too

    Good luck!!

    If I trust any muzzleloader it is the Savage 10ml-II

    The only muzzleloader made today of the appropriate 4140 Chrome-Moly or 416 Stainless steel and that undergoes 100% factory proof-testing, made in the U.S., is the Savage Arms Model 10ML-II. It is obviously the safest, best-made, best-tested muzzleloader ever offered to the consumer. It is the safest muzzleloader you can buy and use, if properly used, but like any other firearm it can be destroyed if misused.

    As with any firearm its all about safety

    I personaly am fond of the Drahthaar breed, I also believe that no matter the dog breed if they have some decent bloodlines and a hunting background in their pedegree you can train any dog to point or retrieve by the repetiive training and use in field.
    Things to remember are what you plan to use it for heavy coated dogs wont fair well in the southern texas environment as well as the northern and vise versa, also you will want a heavy or dense coated dog with good swimming capabilities if your going to do the waterfowel thing.
    Some of those reasons are why I chose the Deutsch Drathaar im my mind they are the ulimate utility dog if you are looking for the Swiss Army Knife of dogs

    Remember guys this is just my opinion!!!!

    I did alot of research and purchased my Drahthaar in Nebraska from this kennel, this lady knows her stuff and raises super dogs for a great family dog, companion, and top notch hunter.
    Be glad to work him for you or answer any question just pm me

    Savage Muzzle loader is the best most accurate Ive owned and I have had about all the big players out there.

    I do like the custom remington in 45 and is on my wish list for someday. :mrgreen:

    I think its a great deal as not all landowners have 600 acres to hunt but need someone to hunt it to thin the herd. I also think its better than having one guy hunt 600 acres and only taking a couple deer. and yes we all need to respect the ground we hunt whether its public or private. 😉

    Thanks for the input, you arent kidding about the 8 mile hike thing. Did you stay on the mountain in a tent or cabin? Im suprised we dont have more Elk hunters on here?

    Ive heard of a fella using molly in a couple barrels both Stainless, one has been chryoed and the other has not. He uses labratory grade moly and moly’s his own with out wax or additives.
    both his guns shoot very well and one ( chryoed ) has around 3800 rounds through it and still shoots better than he can hold can hold it.
    If you shoot prairie Dogs you would probablly shoot out a barrel in a couple summers from what ive heard , so you would be replacing a barrel anyway without some sort of lube? (Just speculating)
    I have read of slighty higher pressure from the use of molly so the use of less powder and more velocity may seem to be benificial with todays componet prices.( who knows ?)

    Its all a matter of personal preference, but one things for sure they have been putting lube on bullets for over 100 years and everything from bees wax to grease,
    Keep in mind grease is a moisture barrier.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    This info is not ment to be used in any way other than for the sake of conversation. Do not use, assemble or barrow any ammo or components without following a manufacturers reloading guide!!!!

    Savage 10ml-II is what I shoot and is good to 200 yrds with 300 grainers ( farther if you practice alot ) and is much lower maintenance than other muzzleloaders
