Good Finish to the 15-16 Season!

Was blessed with a nice doe yesterday. Really nice day to be out and was nice to have a vacation day from work. TC Renegade 54 Cal with L&R lock worked great. First deer with this gun and first flintlock deer for me in many years, probably 10-12. Great day!

Re: Good Finish to the 15-16 Season!

Thanks Guys.

HSY93, Isn't much of a story but here is what happened. Morning hunt on Thursday, I was sitting on the edge of a clear cut at the top of the mountain (some kind of bird habitat program). Deer eat a lot of brush so I was just sitting on the downwind side of a little hollow that leads up into a clear cut waiting on some to come for breakfast. Kept wondering if I could make the shot across the hollow when a group of deer came up my side right toward me. Lead doe turned a little bit sideways and I shot right inside the shoulder. When the smoke cleared she was laying right there. Was using Powerbelt 54 Cal 295 HP with 80 GR of 2F BP.

Retiredusne8, Should have been using that new hammer you sold me on my single trigger Renegade but with the time getting short I figured it best to go with the sure thing. Don't quite have that TC lock where I want it yet for hunting but getting there. Maybe next year!
