Utah Bans Scopes - 2024 Muzzleloader - Press Release

Variable Powder Optics No Longer Permitted For Utah's 2024 Muzzleloader Hunting Season

Utah's 2024 hunting season brings about a significant change for muzzleloader hunters. New for 2024 Utah will no longer permit the use of variable powder scopes during muzzleloader season. While 1x magnification is still permitted, this new regulation has sparked numerous inquiries from hunters seeking the best alternative options. In this article, we will delve into the implications of this change and explore alternative scope choices to ensure hunters are well-prepared for the upcoming season.

The decision to ban variable power scopes during muzzleloader hunting seasons in Utah is a notable development. Hunters accustomed to the flexibility provided by variable magnification scopes now face the challenge of adapting to a fixed 1x magnification scope or open sights.

Given the ban on variable power scopes, and the near impossibility of finding a suitable 1x scope we recommend going with the Williams Western Precision Sight Set. This sight set meets the requirements of the Utah muzzleloader season and provides the best alternative to a variable power scope. For more details on the sight you can click on the image below.

We are here for a higher purpose and believe you are too.

You are loved by God. In fact, He sent His Son Jesus Christ to come to earth live a perfect life and die on a cross for our sins. More than that He raised this same Jesus Christ from the dead for our justification, that all who believe in Him should not perish but have eternal life with God.

Romans 3:23: "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,"

Romans 5:8: "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

Romans 6:23: "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Romans 10:9: "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;"


The joy of salvation:

Romans 5:1: "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,"

Romans 8:1: "Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

Romans 8:38-39: "For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
