In all seriousness ladies and gentlemen...

Who's ready to touch one off!, come'on you know you're excited about the 26th of December. Who cares about Christmas, the only present under a pine tree for me is a bedded deer. Snow on the ground, 18 degrees, frozen toes, a mis-fire...why not. Iron sights, getting frustrated when they're out of range and you're at the point where you'd sell your soul for a 4X scope. Finding elaborate makeshift umbrellas to drape over your pan in the freezing rain. Getting to touch one off even if you didn't see jack, just because you have to unload it....spending the 30 minutes cleaning your barrel because you're paranoid of rust. Soaking in that beautiful aroma of sulfur smoke.

I try to fill my doe tag in rifle, but now when I don't it's great knowing you have an excuse to get up in the mountains for flintlock.

Re: In all seriousness ladies and gentlemen...

I don't shoot Does so I more or less take my gun for a walk. I killed enough with my flintlock in past years, I'm not knocking anybody who does but I don't feel the need anymore. To you guys that are going out, good luck and shoot straight.

God, Family, Country in that order.

Re: In all seriousness ladies and gentlemen...

No were are talking...only extreme hunters go out with the FLINT! I have harvested quite a few does with mine, but my best memory was my senior year of highschool (Jan 2003) when I made a hail mary shot (~80 yards) on a beautiful 8 point in Westmoreland Co. Probably one of my most memorable hunting moments of all time!

Sounds like you hunted this week in Elk County! You need to move further north. You'll learn to watch what you ask for!

Think before you share your thoughts!!!
