    Oregon restriction change, no more open ignition required

    FYI for all the OR muzzleloader hunters out there, open ignition is no longer required. I would have preferred them to go further toward the traditional side personally. I really don't think allowing closed ignitions will change much since they still require BP or sub and no centerfire. Not...
