First flintlock deer!

Waiting for this moment for four years now and finally got one. Prob my worst season yet to date as my gun only went off once and only pulled trigger 6 times this year. Past couple years I typically shoot atleast ten times at deer, always missin' haha. Well this morning in 2B i was out. Took the shot at about 70 yards and looked like a solid hit and my dad thought so too. Walked over and saw one patch of blood over a log it hopped up over and saw it laying down. It jumped up and i fired again putting it through the ear and out the top of the head at about 30 yards. No trophy pic of this guy but it was still a great hunt
