That's what makes flintlock hunting so much fun.

Re: Missed again...TWICE

i redeemed myself this morning. sneaking along 2 doe snorted at me in the brush and another stood there facing me first shot the pan went off but no bang so i reloaded the pan and boom. she only sent about 10 yards and piled up shot straight through the heart. I have shot 3 doe with the flintlock on the second day 3 years in a row now within the same 10 square yard area

Oh..just pour some salt in the wound

I tried to redeem myself this afternoon, but I didn't see anything. I won't be able to go again till Saturday.

My uncle did worse he missed the same deer 12 times and never hit it. The deer finally just walked off. So don't feel bad about missing only twice.

Re: Missed again...TWICE

I dont know about you guys but EVERY TIME i seem to get a decent buck close enough to shoot at with my flinter it has to be in the middle of january's version of hurricane Irene... No less than my last 4 shots at bucks in flint season have been in the middle of rainstorms and the result was either no flash or a complete miss

Re: Missed again...TWICE

A couple of years ago I shot a fox right through the heart at 25 yards in the AM on a wet snowy day. I must have gotten cocky because later that day I missed a huge 8 pointer at 35 yards by a mile. I got the dreaded delay in the pan and my head went up like a gophers' and it went off with my cheek about 6 inches from the stock.
