Anyone notice they see in slow motion when hunting with their flinter? I shot at a deer last night and I know I had good ignition, but it seemed like the flash lasted forever while I tried to keep it pointed at a smoke obscured deer. :-D Thinking back the same thing happened to me last year 10 yard shot pulled trigger and it took forever.
Yeah, I missed both deer--I'm getting better though I just need a few more times to make mistakes before I get it right. I lost all presence of mind both times and didn't do breathing control or proper trigger squeezing like I do when I target shoot.
i use good black english flints and as little powder in the pan as possible....i still get that slow mo when the trigger is pulled, that's the heart stopping great part of hunting with flintlocks....best part is when the smoke does clear and ya see your deer lying where it was standing seconds ago ........bob
