The Fish and Game Council of New Jersey has just approved a three day hunting season for muzzleloader rifles. Dating back all the way to Civil War, muzzleloader rifles were seen as the epitome of personal weapons, but could only be shot one time before reloading. Having been modernized over the years, these riffles are still popular from serious hunters. Muzzleloader rifles have passed the test of time and have made many improvements.
