During modern firearm seasons, can a muzzleloading firearm be used that has telescopic sights, uses 209 primers, and has a closed ignition system?

Muzzleloading firearms used during a modern firearm season are not required to meet ignition, primer, or sight restrictions.

Muzzleloading firearms used during a modern firearm season are also not required to meet double-barrel restrictions. A muzzleloading firearm can have both barrels fully loaded and capped.

The same holds true for persons holding a valid modern firearm tag while legally hunting in a firearm restriction area.
