Finally got one with the flintlock

After years of trying, I managed to take a button buck with my TC Renegade. He came thru around 4:30 with a group of six or seven doe. When they were just about in the clear, a two of the smaller deer started playing around and spooked the rest of the deer out of my opening. I took the only deer that stuck around. 50 yard shot, in under the spine, hit one lung and out behind the opposite shoulder. Ran about 50 yards (uphill towards the truck!). Flintlock has quickly became my favorite season over the past few years. Plan to build a hawken this year and take many deer with it in the future!

Crongrats, gotta love when they make your job easier. Hopefully it was a bit warmer down your way. 15* for a high up here.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

Congrats on taking one with the flint and on getting him to run uphill toward the truck.

The older I get the better I was.
