I have had 2 opportunities at bucks during the late flintlock season. The first was a basket rack 8 pointer that strolled out with 2 does..I had already used my buck tag during archery season, so I shot one of the does. The second opportunity happened a few years ago. I watched another basket rack chasing a fawn doe around my stand for about 15 minutes. They wouldn't stand still and I was freezing from the cold weather, so I doubt I could have held steady if they had stopped anyway!
My last 2 bucks were with the Flintlock. Im 15, and have as many bucks with my flintlock as with my high powered rifle. I love late season.Been hunting since first day of archery and pass up alot of small bucks even though I will shoot almost anything in late season. Still have all of my tags. Let the led flinging begin!
