During a general any weapon season can a muzzleloader be used with a scope and saboted all copper bullets?

Answer: 

During a general any weapon season while using a muzzleloader
You cannot use a muzzleloading rifle or musket which is less than forty-five (.45) caliber for deer, pronghorn, mountain lion, or gray wolf, or which is less than fifty (.50) caliber for elk, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, or black bear
It cannot have any electronic device attached to, or incorporated in, the muzzleloader
Therefore during a general any weapon season, you can use a muzzleloader with a scope and a saboted all copper bullet, as long as the above requirements are met.
