Smoked a deer

And in this case, you can say I almost literally smoked one... lol

105 yards, she ran about 75 yards and crashed in a heap.

This was my longest flintlock shot on a deer, and it's the first deer I killed with a ball I cast myself.

Time to go harass the tree rats now....

Anything past 100 yds with a flinter is an accomplishment! CONGRADULATIONS!!!

Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!

Rest assured parts of that deer WILL get smoked.

Dried ďbeefĒ and make a smoked backstrap. Been meaning to try smoked tenderloins but I canít bring myself to deviate from searing/grilling them. Lol

Congrats on the late season flinter deer. Every time I see one of them long rifles, it makes more more hyped up to pull the trigger on one, so to speak.
