Flintlock 9 Point

I saw this bachelor group of bucks one morning last week and hunted this spot Wednesday and saw a group of does. I decided to hunt a pinch point next to a thick bedding and with this strong west wind thought I could get in a tree where deer could quarter into this wind and not get winded. About 4:00 four bucks came through like they were on a mission and two looked really nice and believe both were 10 points, but could not get them to stop in an opening for a clear shot. I could not believe they got past me and nothing. A minute later I heard a deer walking and here comes a fifth buck and he was only 30 yards, a mouth grunt stopped him and my T/C 50 cal Hawkens loaded with a round ball did the job. I watched him fall from my stand. Nice 9 point and couldn't be happier with a true Pa. trophy. Thanks to little bone for helping the old man get him out of the woods.
