Hey man, you mean to tell me that trophy hunters don't have any fun hunting? Gosh, more like a job hey? Too much pressure to enjoy it?
If I was a doctor, I'd prescribe a flintlock rifle to you just to relieve the stress. WMI, all fun aside, you have a great holiday and get that monster. Me I'm waiting for those new french amber flints to arrive, I can always head out just for the fun of it! Blood pressure is falling even as I write this.HM

Going out tomorrow myself. I always enjoy seeing deer and other wildlife. Keeps my mind free of work and such. There is just something about seeing a monster rack walking at you that nothing else compares. The adrenaline goes threw the roof every time. I get the biggest kick out of watching all the animals and birds just doing the things they do. That is relaxing to me. I'll never get bored of it.

one of my hunting buddies is buying Flintlock for PA late season. Looks like there's another hunt this year after all. Slowly but surely the conversion is taking place. Who's next wmi?????

I'm afraid I would catch my hair on fire and I don't have much left.

only the devils run through my brain, black blood runs through my veins, nary a smile shows on this face, the only songs I sing are of dead man's place. arrrg. Not bad for 6 am. I really don't know what that has in common with muzzleloaders but ronn started it.
I do have to get to the range with the flintlock and new amber flints to see how they spark and make sure I can hit the target. Its getting to be a problem seeing the open sights anymore with these eyes (even correction surgery). I have the front sight painted with a dab of red paint to see it better. I've tried several colors but red seems to be best for me. Anyone else using something on their sights to see them better, I could use some thoughts. The problem is without glasses I see clearly one sight, without glasses I only see the other one clearly, can't get both. I see the eye doc tomorrow and we will talk about this problem. No modern sights are allowed in PA flintlock season. I'm just thinking out loud, is there any problem by moving the sights closer together to get both visually clear? I can't see a problem with accuracy??? Onehorse, ronn, wmi, others what do you guys think?
