The boom in blackpowder hunting’s popularity has created a demand for more information on the sport. Author Peter Schoonmaker answers the call with this new guide, detailing everything a hunter needs to know about muzzleloading - from the basics and background, to success strategies, to a glimpse into the future of the sport.

Successful Muzzleloader Hunting features a review of the guns, propellants and projectiles commonly used today, as well as a look at the purpose and uses of muzzleloaders. Sections on gun preparation and sighting-in prepare hunters for using the guns and cover important safety issues every hunter needs to know.

Finally, the book reviews strategies for hunting several types of popular game, including whitetail deer, black bear, turkey, coyote, and elk, as well as several other small game species. A troubleshooting section provides answers to the ten most common muzzleloading pitfalls, and a resources guide lists muzzleloader organizations and manufacturers.
