Muzzleloader class planned

BARNESVILLE - Outdoors writer and lecturer Doyle Dietz, a member of the Pennsylvania Outdoor Writers Association and Mason-Dixon Outdoor Writers Association, will present "Muzzleloader Hunting 101," focusing on deer hunting with flintlock and traditional percussion ignition rifles. The program will be held at 6 p.m. today in the Locust Lake State Park amphitheater.

Dietz, a member of the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association and the Pennsylvania Federation of Black Powder Shooters (PFBPS), is one of only 14 individuals in the 28-year history of the PFBPS to receive its Pioneer Life Award for his more than 30 years of coverage of muzzleloader-related activities in newspapers, magazines, radio programs and seminars.
