Extended season 01/11/16

About 1100 I met up with a buddy...we are a duo..and we like to get out in the late season to see what is left...hunt some new woods..try new things..he doesn't flintlock hunt so he was my dog...

First push 4 came by on the wrong hill..couldn't shoot..he saw like 8.

I move and he continues round the hill...small buck came right to me...he had a biggun and a shooter and 4 doe cut out across a field..I never seen them..

He jumped over the hill and brought the other side round and out 5 across the creek..

I ran him around to the other side and I setup...

We've rarely been in there because it just doesn't work no matter what we try...we had a few places for me to sit but I've tried them all in the passed and the deer always do the option I didn't pick..

I picked the new option..

Sitting there half frozen...I thought I heard brush breaking a few times but never saw the source...

10 minutes later I hear him hollering...h was behind me...so thick he didn't leave the woods in time..I was in a swampy opening with the gun rested on an old 2x4 frame..

When he yelled I turned around his direction...I see a good sized doe pop out of the thicket running right for me..way over my left shoulder...nothing to lean the gun on..she's within 25yds when I see her running hard...

I cock the hammer and as she is about to pass me at 10yds I swing the gun around and get it half way on my shoulder and touched off the L&R lock...wahboom!

She's 8-10yds and I see the hole immediately.. Blood blowing out...I knew it was deep in the rib cage but I watched the blood blowing out hard...


I told my buddy to slowly sneak my way and we will give her a few minutes..

We sat on a log laughing about the hunt..he says I'm the only guy he's ever hunted with that consistently kills em with the flintlock.. I laugh and see talk about the pile of deer weve killed together in the late season...


Took up the trail and I could tell it was atleast one lung blowing out...easy to follow and all the sudden slowing..

Its thicker than thick..can't see 5 yards in some of the stuff..

I loose blood and he stays at it..I jump up on a log to see which way she went..I was going to back out for a few hours...I couldn't see tracks or blood and we had just enough snow to see..

Scratching my head still standing on the log I spot her laying 5yds tocmy buddies right...




I wasn't happy with how deep I hit..but it worked...

Took a good part of the close lung..a piece of the far lung..blew the liver in pieces...exited out the guts between the ribs and rear quarter..


That's a wrap for the season...

In total we moved around 20 deer in 2hrs. 3 buck for sure...

Good day in Penn's Wood's!


...you know me...I love my flintlock!!
