Last year I went down to my uncles to hunt with a flint lock in northren PA. What a blast I had. I shot between 20 and 25 times over a 4 day period. I mist a big one side 5 point at about 125 yards. It was 120 yards out of range
I finally shot a doe at about 40 yards out of a blind. I had a rest and everything and I still gut shot the poor thing. If you want a real chalange try hunting with one of them.
