Ever wondered what the difference between the CVA Wolf Northwest and CVA Optima Northwest muzzleloaders is? Watch the video for a detailed description.
Are you a hunter in Washington, Oregon, or Idaho looking for a good muzzleloader that is legal to use in your state? You might want to consider getting one of the muzzleloaders in CVA's Northwest lineup.
This video contains a good description of the difference between the CVA Wolf Northwest and CVA Optima Northwest muzzleloaders, which are both specifically designed by Connecticut Valley Arms (better known as CVA) to comply with the muzzleloader hunting regulations in the Pacific Northwest.
Though they are similar in many ways, there are some important differences between them that you should take into consideration before buying one.
I've successfully hunted with both the CVA Wolf Northwest and CVA Optima Northwest over the last two years, and I can state without reservation that they are both high quality guns that will serve you well if you take care of them and use them properly.
So far, I've taken a blacktail deer and a black bear (you can see a video of the bear hunt here) with the CVA Wolf Northwest, and a whitetail deer with the CVA Optima Northwest.
Both deer hunts took place under the damp conditions that are common in Washington. However, in each case, the gun went off when I pulled the trigger and the bullet hit where I was aiming.
Now that you've got a better understanding of the difference between the CVA Wolf Northwest and CVA Optima Northwest muzzleloaders, if you're interested in getting one for yourself, both muzzleloaders (along with the CVA Accura Northwest) are currently available at Muzzle-Loaders.com.
