first flintlock deer, and it's a buck. after 3 months hunting every season available, and with bow, to rifle, to muzzleloader. after wounding a buck in archery, multiple encounters with many different bucks (most ever in one season since i started hunting 22 years ago) to missing one with a rifle. what a long tough season. got it friday morning before work. i have about an hour to hunt before i have to be there. i got a doe with the shotgun today.
