Flintlock Fun

I took the flintlock for a walk this evening.3 inches of snow.While sitting on a log I saw 9 deer pass through an open area 200 yards away.Too far for me.Tomorrow a buddy and I are taking a ground blind and setting up about 50 yards off the trail.Whether we get them or not its great fun.

Leaving friday to head to PA. They have a foot of snow. I'll hang around camp do some cooking while my buddy tries to fill his tag. Better to rehab at hunting camp than home! There are three more hunters coming from NC to join in the fun. I'll give a final year end report when I get back.

Well, we didn't see them.Probably diverted by other hunters on New Years day.But we did see large tracks among the smaller ones.My buddy has another spot we are going to try.Oh, the stratagizing.

1 doe was shot during our PA trip. They had a foot of snow but temperatures were pretty good 20-40*. It was good to get away for some camp time.

After nearly a year trying I finally won an e-bay auction for a TC hawken rear peep sight, it even has the front globe sight with all the inserts. I had to do something for my eyesight issues. I have a lot of trouble seeing the front and rear sights equally. The peep and globe should clear things up some and their legal in PA for late season flintlock hunting.

Well,I didn't get 'em last year.My buddy got two doe at long range(beyond 150 yards) with slugs from a scoped 12 guage.So we had some venison.Another friend has deer eating his soybeans.My first crack at them will come in the October muzzleloader season.I've started taking the .50 cal. flintlock to the range.I'm okay at 50 yards and will move to the 75 yard target next time.

I got my second doe tag for PA.They're for different areas so the October muzzleloader season should be interesting.

I don't don't hunt the early season. I do enjoy the late season flintlock hunting. However, two of the last three seasons has had heavy snows that make flintlock hunting very difficult, but I still like it. We usually have four of us at camp and have a great time hunting the old fashion way.
