    The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks department is proposing to ban the use of sabots in shotguns and muzzle loaders in certain hunting areas.

    But I'm not in Montana! Well it doesn't matter, they are accepting public input and do not ask where you live.

    Hunting home page - > http://fwp.mt.gov/hunting/default.html

    explains the proposed change - > http://fwpiis.mt.gov/content/getItem.aspx?id=48473

    Make comments - > http://fwp.mt.gov/hunting/publicComments/sabots.html

    Feel free to c/p this to other pro-hunting forums, blogs, etc. Time for comments ends on Friday 2/5

    Foster, or sabot, should have a max range of around 500yds, so what's the problem? The advantage of the sabot over the Foster is that the sabot will give better accuracy, thus allowing you to take game out to 150yds. The sabot doesn't really shoot any further, it's just more accurate.
