Flintlock Kill! KA-BOOM!

Took this huge doe tonight with my 50 cal. Lyman Great Plains rifle! Home cast .490 ball from my mold, .018 patch and 75 gr. FFFG GOEX blackpowder. I used a musket flint filed down to fit close to the frizzen. I literally had deer crawling all over the place! The wind was perfect today..I was down wind, Was watching 10 doe out of range..I looked to my left..saw this big doe coming in fast..I knew she couldn't smell me because I was down wind..I let her walk in to about 15 yards broadside..KA-BOOM!!! She squatted down like she was taking a pee..did a half drunken circle..and collapsed. I never bothered to reload..Trying to lower all my gear out of my stand..and here come more deer! Took out the digital camera...look how close they are! You cant see them all..but at one point I had 15 deer around me! Can't wait for next year with the flintlock!
