January 4th

Anyone heading out this fine Friday? Looks like beautiful weather the next two days in Western PA. I'm looking to take advantage of it and see if I can put some venison in the freezer with my flintlock. Good luck to all who make it out.

I just came back in from sitting this morning in a blind. Jumped a bunch going in. It was like walking on glass it was so loud. The last few days we've been pushing dmap property's to fill tags. We put up a real nice buck yesterday on one of the drives but it never got out of 5th gear to offer a shot to the posters. I'll sit on the corn tonight and see if that 8 comes up to feed before dark.

Went out at 1:00. Weather was beautiful and made sitting in my late 1700's outfit comfortable. At 4:00 i had 4 doe come in and stop at 65 yds. The big mature doe that was leading the group stopped under a hemlock and was trying to make me out. The one 1 1/2 year old trotted out front and stopped behind another hemlock. The other two 1 1/2 yr olds stood facing me in the shooting lane. The mature doe was getting antsy and i figured her next move would send them all running off. So, i picked the farthest one of the two in the shooting lane that looked the biggest. Since she was facing me i held at the base of the neck and touched off the Bedford Co flint i built a couple yrs ago. The prb went true as i knew it would with this rifle and she dropped where she stood. Pics once i get home to puter and download the camera
