Don't forget another option: flint and real black powder! The way muzzleloading used to be. I still have more fun shooting the old style guns, and they kill things very well.

how true and we all seem to forget in our quest for the next best thing

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

hey good to see another flint man. Well to tell you, I spend my flintlock hunting in Pa during the late season after Christmas. There are 4 of us that hunt from our camp its a blast to hunt the old way. I don't go to any of the matches as in NW Ohio there are not any that I know of. I built a Hawken 54 flint full stock, and have a TC PA hunter in 50 cal. How about yourself where do you hunt?
