My hat is off to anyone who can knock a deer down with an oldtime flintlock.
Its a real skill to be able to coordinate yourself well enough to hit something much less criticaly with one of those antique delayed action ,slow motion black powder rigs.
I have had experinced modern muzzle loader shooters tell me the new stuff is just a modern bullet put together backasswards one at a time minus a shell casing.
To anyone who has never shot a oldtime flintlock try it. You will gain new respect for a fine oldtime traditional means of shooting.
