Wisconsin Muzzleloader Hunting Season Regulations

Telescopic sights are legal to use on muzzleloaders during any firearm deer season, note: inline muzzleloaders are legal to use during the 10-day muzzleloader hunt with black powder or any black powder substitutes. Muzzleloaders may be used statewide in all areas open to hunting deer with guns.

Muzzleloading handguns must be .44 caliber or larger with a minimum barrel length of 7, measured from muzzle to breech face, and fire a single projectile weighing 138 grains or more to be legal for deer hunting. Black powder revolvers are legal, but not for hunting deer during the 10-day muzzleloader-only season because they are capable of being loaded by the cylinder instead of the muzzle.
