There's a lot more involved than primitive today. It mostly revolves around money, plus major changes in young hunters. Asking a new hunter to hunt with a flintlock, is like asking him to put down his smart phone and use a rotary.Muzzleloader and archery seasons were meant to be primitive weapons seasons....we just keep getting further and further away from that....IMHO.
The day of primitive shooter, agree or not, is slowly passing. Huge arguments over modern inline muzzleloaders within the NMLRA, caused complete ciaos. Now, the NMLRA has many different aggs for modern inline rifles.
One thing that seems to never fail, is that even when someone is asking about information on a modern inline, some always brings up primitive. No disrespect intended at all.
All one has to do with these youngsters, is to let them run their course, then at some point introduce them to primitive rifles, rather that be flint or percussion. You'll find them interested in primitive rifles and many may decide they'd like to know more.
