Black powder is highly corrosive. The stainless steel barrel is recommended if it’s in your budget
New York allows for an additional 10 days of black powder hunting only after the 21 day regular firearm season. You are issued an either/or tag. Meaning you can take 1 deer, either a doe or buck. I have never taken a deer with my muzzleloader. The only firearm I’ve carried hunting that I’ve yet to harvest an animal with. The hunting conditions are usually quite harsh by then. But I always buy the tag just to get the extra 10 days of hunting.
