But it was my 'loaner' and I wasn't carrying it. A few of us were hunting close to home here and had over 30 deer moving including 2 good bucks and about 5 smaller ones. My cousins each missed a shot and then a big group came running up to our 15 yr. old friend. He made a good 40? yd shot straight through the chest of a nice 7 pt. about 16" wide.(sorry, no pics) He had my TC Renegade and a .530 ball with .015 patch in front of 80 gr. of Swiss 2F. The deer went about 300 yds before it dropped. This is his second year hunting, 2nd deer, first buck, first shot ever fired with a flintlock. What are the odds of that happening?
I'm hoping to go back tomorrow and see if I can help thin the doe herd a little.

Nice! Yes probably was good he never fired one before he took his first shot at a deer. I"m jealous- missing my first flint shot at a deer this year. Hope he's hooked


Good Luck to you and I need some of that luck too. Been into deer daily all week, but no shots offered or the wind swirled a bit too much.
